BETWEEN THE DESERT AND
THE DEEP BLUE SEA: A SYMPHONY
In a fitting tribute to our city, this year’s Perth Festival finale
asks the people of WA, “What does Perth sound like? What
are the quintessential sounds that link you to this city?” In
the months leading up to the close of the Festival, Perth
residents are being asked to record their favourite sounds of
the city to help Tod Machover, a composer and professor at
MIT’s Media Lab, to craft a symphony tailor-made for Perth
that will be played live for the first time by WASO. This epic,
interactive experience will weave technology and ancient
storytelling into a modern musical extravaganza.
The concert also features some of the dynamic music
developed in the surprisingly sophisticated world of gaming.
Uniting the console with the concert hall, WASO will perform
a live soundtrack as some of the greatest video games are
projected on the screen above. For information on how to
send in your sounds of Perth, visit perthfestival.com.au . Perth

significance of our most limited resource – time – is
lauded as both epic and experimental. With 11
record-breaking albums and a string of film scores,
include J. Edgar and The Intouchables, to his
name, Ludovico’s performance showcases his
signature emotional and adventurous style. Perth
Concert Hall, Feb 8.
DAWN UPSHAW AND THE
Four-time Grammy Award winner Dawn Upshaw joins the
Australian Chamber Orchestra for a night of enchanting
music, at times blurring the lines between classical and
jazz. The performance will be the Australian premiere
of Winter Morning Walks, a song cycle written by Maria
Schneider and based on the short poems of American poet
Ted Kooser. The poems were inspired by the snow-covered
landscape Kooser would experience during his pre-dawn
walks in the Nebraskan countryside while recovering from
chemotherapy. The program continues with a range of
other complex and beautiful orchestral works including
John Adams’s John’s Book of Alleged Dances, Grieg’s
Holberg Suite and Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro. Perth
Concert Hall, Feb 19.
Quartet will take audience
