This week our One Night Stand series cross-pollinates with Melbourne Music Week—resulting in some mind-widening sonic experiences at MPavilion. The Telepathy Project (Veronica Kent and Sean Peoples) will record the nocturnal meanderings from Monday night’s Star Pavilion and the resulting tracks will play in the pavilion throughout the week, invoking starry nights and a night spent together under the milky way.
The soundscape features a premiere work by hypnotic chanteuse and multi-disciplinary performer Sophia Brous (following on from her participation in the Barbican Centre’s In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited). Brous will present a premiere work, (Space) Dream Triptych—an avant-guard space opera set in three parts, exploring the shifting dream states of the unconcious, longing and isolation in infinite space. (Space) Dream Triptych will be performed by Sophia Brous in a first time collaboation with harpist Marshall McGuire and electronics-whizz Joel Stern.
This project has been funded as part of the VCA and MCM New Initiatives program, supported by the State Government through Arts Victoria.
