In this rare, deep listening experience the audience sits among the performers to experience the music as if part of an ocean of sound. Colossal percussive waves are created by layers of imperceptibly soft sounds— sandpaper on stone, seeds falling on glass, bowed bells—forming a textural landscape bristling with detail.

A wave and waves is a work of monumental scale, experienced with intimate immediacy—as countless tiny moments of friction, gravity and vibration heave into life like a single, pulsing organism.

Premiered in 2016 at the Melbourne Festival. This will be its third only performance.

This event is part of the Totally Huge New Music Festival.
