At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

WA Composers Project Concerts

WA Composers Project Concerts

As a part of their residency at PICA with The Western Australian Composers Project Decibel present two concluding concerts. The concerts will feature all Western Australian world music premieres from a diverse range of composers such as Stuart James, Christopher Tonkin, Rachael Dease, Sam Gillies, Johannes Luebbers, Henry Anderson, Cat Hope and Lindsay Vickery.

Decibel works with music that combines electronic and acoustic instruments. They also work with new ways of writing and reading music scores, using graphic notation and real-time score generation in many of the works. Decibel feature Cat Hope (director, flutes, bass), Lindsay Vickery (reeds, electronics), Stuart James (keyboard, percussion, electronics), Tristen Parr (cello) and Aaron Wyatt (viola, violin).

During the residency, some rehearsals will be open to the public, sharing the processes involved in creating new music works.
