Shallow Listening

SOLD OUT - 15th & 16th May.

Artfully beguiling, subtly chaotic and deliciously zany, the music box project brings you the Sydney premiere of Shallow Listening. Five ‘sonic pillars’ of exploratory works by Moya Henderson, Jasmin Wing-Yin Leung, Jaslyn Robertson, Elizabeth Jigalin and Joseph Franklin are woven together with a performative sinew of sound, motion and play. From the clicking of scissors to slow motion singing, cheeky meditations on red, a plethora of toys and the catharsis of an internal dialogue — leave your expectations at the door and join the ensemble for an evening of signature music box madness.

Premiered at the 2019 Bendigo International Festival of Experimental Music (BIFEM), this genre-defying performance received the 2020 APRA AMCOS/AMC Art Music Award for Excellence in Experimental Music.

Hosted by Sydney comedian Lizzy Hoo, this free, public event will see us raise a glass or two to writing and its power to illuminate topics that usually remain hidden in the dark, while local violinist Jane Aubourg sets the party mood with her post-minimalist, looping tunes.

Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music: Shallow Listening

The major component of Sydney composer | performer collective The Music Box Project’s 2019 BIFEM début is an immersive event featuring world premieres from two of the collective, as well as rising star composers, Brisbane-based Jasmin Leung and Melbourne-based Jaslyn Robertson. Some 45 years after it was composed, and rounding out the programme, is the Australian premiere of iconic Australian composer Moya Henderson’s Clearing the Air. These works speak to each other across two generations and BIFEM audiences are all the richer for the exchange.

Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music: Cushion Concert

As part of their residency at 2019 BIFEM, Sydney composer | performer collective The Music Box Project open this year’s festival with our 6th annual Cushion Concert, BIFEM’s next- generation programme for pre-school audiences and their adult companions. The Cushion Concert remains one of the most hotly contested performance opportunities for BIFEM artists. Holding the attention of an adult audience is a coded and negotiated space, but holding a group of under-5-year-olds’ attention really means you have to perform!The exploratory collectivism that is the heart of The Music Box Project promises to deliver one of our best Cushion Concerts to date!
