JULIAN DAY IN PEFORMANCE
Composer Julian Day joins with the Barossa community to create a massed work that speaks to the region's people, history, and sense of place. Held under the shadow of the mighty Hill & Son Organ at the Barossa Regional Gallery, Super Critical Mass will examine how the cultural forces of the Barossa community come together and intersect.
ABOUT JULIAN DAY
Julian Day is an Australian and New York based composer who directs 'Super Critical Mass': an ongoing participatory sound project in which temporary communities form within 'the commons'. Members of the local community come together to create monochromatic sound fields using identical sound sources (bowls, coins, bells, voice) in public locations such as parks, streets, malls and libraries, following memorized instructions developed within in-situ workshops.
Dates: 13 July 7pm (preview, invite only) & 14 July 2:30pm (General Public). TIckets via Eventbrite.
THOMAS TROTTER IN CONCERT
UK organist Thomas Trotter (right) is arguably the best organist in the world (yes, the world), and we are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming him to the Barossa this August. This is going to be a cracker of a performance, we can’t wait! Hosted by the Friends of the Hill & Son Organ.
Date: 29 August 7pm. Tickets via Eventbrite or at the door.
