There's less than a month to go until Four Winds Easter Festival! I'm excited to take part in my first Four Winds in beautiful Bermagui on the south coast. There's a massive line-up of artists this year, including:
James Crabb (artistic director) | Australian Brass Quintet | Tamara-Anna Cislowska | Rohan Dasika | Djaadjawan Dancers | Alice Giles AM | Goldner String Quartet | Radical Son| Jack Liebeck | Jessie Lloyd | Ian Munro | Guy Noble | Emma Pearson | Maria Raspopova | David Rowden | Julian Smiles | Speak Percussion | Stonewave Taiko | Song Company | Aleksandr Tsiboulski, guitarist | Lloyd Van’t Hoff | Ariel Zuckermann.
Lloyd Van't Hoff is performing my work A Mad Tea-Party for clarinet and electronics at the Sideshow Alley Concert on Saturday 31 March. There are three concerts during the evening at 6pm, 7:30pm, and 9pm in the Windsong Pavilion. The concert is described as:
'a collection of short solo and duo works all of which have an element of theatre and surprise. The inspiration comes from the atmosphere of a Sideshow Alley from bygone days.'
Sideshow Alley also features James Crabb (classical accordion), Tamara-Anna Cislowska, (piano), Rohan Daskia (double bass), Scott Kinmont (trombone), Emma Pearson (soprano), Eugene Ughetti (percussion), with Guy Noble (MC) and Jim Atkins (sound design).
I'm also running a youth workshop (ages 8-16) on Sunday 1 April, called Sonic Postcards, where participants collect images and sounds from the Bermagui site to create soundscapes and mini-artworks.
