Event Details

An evocative concert inspired by stories of those who returned from the battlefields of Gallipoli, the Somme, Passchendaele, and Verdun.

Sometimes Home Can Grow Stranger than Space focusses on those who tried to pick up their ‘normal’ lives after WW1, and draws from an intensely moving archive of intimate accounts of lives remembered in fine grain detail away from the thrust of battle.

The music includes three world premieres by composers Andrea Keller, Tilman Robinson and Australian Art Orchestra Director Peter Knight, with traditional ensemble textures invigorated by archival recordings, tape, electronics and improvisation, to create an intense listening experience.
