Warren Burt is a composer, performer, video artist, sound poet, writer, and instrument maker. He works with hardware and software, electronic and acoustic media.

His iPad and laptop performances are unique, process-driven manipulations of image and sound.

DRILL HALL GALLERY

3.00 pm Inflorescence

Reuben Lewis – Trumpet

Trumpeter Reuben Lewis will contemplate the sympathetic resonances found in this hidden world of Dianne Fogwell’s artwork; illuminating memories of pollinators planted, plucked, gathered, observed and listened to.

“Pollinisers, pollinators and pollination are part of an exacting process that is fundamental to the world’s food source and usually goes unnoticed, quietly working away in the background of our daily lives. There is an intrinsic beauty to this process that has formed the basis of my contemplations leading to the work in this exhibition. When moths, butterflies, bees and others visit to harvest their essence it is a choreography that nature has performed throughout history. In these encounters, the flowers disclose their secret to the pollinators, who take it home in the form of scent and taste.” – Dianne Fogwell

DRILL HALL GALLERY

7 pm Beethoven’s Piano Concerto – Australian Haydn Ensemble

With its ravishing use of instrumental and orchestral colour, the music of Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn inspired visual artists who were pioneering explorers of abstract colour music, such as Kandinsky, and Kupka, and also artists in this exhibition (de Maistre, Hirschfeld Mack). This concert features a special guest, the internationally acclaimed Canadian violinist Marc Destrubé. He joins the ensemble for a program featuring Neal Peres Da Costa in a chamber version of Beethoven’s 2nd Piano Concerto and Mozart’s Symphony No 39.

The Ensemble’s 2014 concert series is presented at the Drill Hall Gallery in conjunction with the ANU School of Music and is funded by Canberra CBD Limited. Tickets are available online: https://beethovenspianoconcertoanu.eventbrite.com.au
