A Brief History of Time: Chamber Landscapes description

To be human is to make music.

Australian Indigenous people have the oldest living tradition on the planet. They have been singing for millennia, their music passing through thousands of generations of ears, hands, and hearts.

In Western classical music, we speak of ‘early’ music; music from the Middle Ages to the Englightenment. The ‘A Brief History of Time: Chamber Landscapes’ series sets Western early music, up to a millennium old, within the time-expanding universe of Indigenous music making, and finds a place for us to meet in contemporary Australia.

The musicians for ‘A Brief History of Time’ come from different cultures, generations and genres. They are distinguished not only by their extraordinary skills, but also by their generosity and courage as artists. We invite you to join a cast assembled from Arnhem Land, Scandinavia, Italy, UK and across Australia.
