The Siren Event  Presented by Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey and Big West Festival

In this major new work featuring ten leading contemporary Australian composers, and the massed male voices of the School of Hard Knocks, THE SIREN EVENT will dramatically signal the history of the west as a place for industry and a new space/home for those seeking refuge from around the world. With four of Australia’s leading young ensembles, THE SIREN EVENT is an exciting large-scale orchestration of vocal, instrumental and urban/industrial musical and sonic forces. Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey, who have been creating situated musical works for large-scale forces for two decades, will be joined by leading Australian contemporary composers Carolyn Connors, Aviva Endean, Neil Kelly, Ray Pereira, Anita Hustas, Peter Knight, Genevieve Lacey, and Adam Simmons.

Time: 8:15pm

Venue: House at the Big West Village
