Luminous Hall at UWA

It has been a privilege to work with Illuminart on a large scale projection commissioned by the University of Western Australia. This work incorporates not only the superlative voices of ‘Well Versed’ theatre group but also beautiful compositions that have been made specifically for the centenary celebrations by some of Australia’s renowned composers, including Richard Walley, Cathie Travers, Iain Grandage, James Ledger and Trilby Temperley.

Pete Ardron and myself have also made compositional contributions and all this has been woven together by me into a soundscape which underlines a sumptuous visual feast created to outline the history and brilliance of the campus and its environs.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of creating this work!! 8th of February, one night only, on the facade of Winthrop hall at UWA, five cycles of forty minutes each. Bring a picnic rug and your loved ones! Kid friendly and smoke-free.

Testimonial

...the Lounge became the catacomb that resonated the vocal tour de force of Samantha Ray, whose powerful howls, accompanied by a montage of technological symphonies have been labelled operatic dance fusion. This sweet siren's almost metaphysical presence enticed onlookers as she threw blossoms into the crowd and interacted with her audience to offer a deeper insight into the poetry behind her music. Merging with the house-inspired backing beats, the enthralling performance enveloped the spectators to culminate in a passionate round of applause.
