SATURATION

Presented by Argo

music for piano, flutes, sextet + electronics

powerful, pervasive, tangible, inescapable :: saturation submerges you in music you can feel in the very air

In this, the first concert in ARGO’s 2017 season, the Brisbane based new music ensemble take over the Judith Wright Centre, creating a synaesthetic experience where sound can be heard, felt and seen. Surrounded by radiant visuals and engulfing soundscapes, the night features triple-Grammy-winning Chicago-based-Australian flautist Tim Munro and “barnstorming” local pianist Liam Viney, joined by some of Brisbane’s most exciting young performers.

Driving minimalism, beating dance rhythms, electronica, contemporary classicism, and ambient music combine in a program to overwhelm your senses. The night includes two new electronics meets- acoustic works by Thomas Green and Ben Heim, the Australian premieres of John Luther Adams’ lush yet mercurial The Light Within and Tristan Perich’s biting 1-bit electronics A/B/C/D, plus Philip Glass’ pulsating Music in Similar Motion and a few other surprises along the way, all with live visuals by Kit Mason.

Reviews

Argo is a unique concept that is greater than the sum of these parts, and impresses in achieving its aim of breaking down barriers between musical genres- and going one step further, to blur the boundaries between musical genre and art installation.
