The Art, Not Apart Festival

“This type of anarchic performance model is based on a desire to create a cooperative, egalitarian situation where performers explore sounEMS ANAds and rhythms together.”

The EMS was asked to perform in the “Art, Not Apart” music festival held in several locations around Canberra.  Poet CJ Bowerbird, and QL2 Dance performed with ANU musicians (directed by Dr Alexander Hunter) for the first part of the performance. The EMS then performed a set of structured improvisation that drew on Dr Hunter’s research into anarchism and leftist politics in composition and performance, and open music forms and notation.

Dr Hunter states that, “this type of anarchic performance model is based on a desire to create a cooperative, egalitarian situation where performers explore sounds and rhythms together.” (from: https://music.anu.edu.au/news/experimental-tunes-open-art-not-apart-festival)

I was lucky enough to be a part of this ensemble, and was proud to open the “Art, Not Apart” festival with the Experimental Music Studio.
