Rubiks Collective: Neal, Tymoczko & Lim

Fri 12 April @ 19:30 - 21:00

$20 – $25


Exploring the shadowlands of dawn and dusk, Shy Creatures is a captivating world of surprising sounds and offbeat rhythms. From driving beats to shimmering microtonalities, expect the unexpected from Rubiks in this quirky program of world premieres and recent favourites.

Kate Neal’s dream-like Sunrise and Cello Solo (A Game) create unexpected pairings of instruments and sonorities: harpsichord and gamelan gongs, soulful cello melodies and hushed exhalations. Dmitri Tymczko’s Shy Creatures is a three-movement romp through his genre-bending, mercurial approach to new music, drawing on rock, jazz and romanticism.

Sylvia Lim’s Shades of Night, the fifth Pythia Prize commission, will immerse you in the strange beauty and deep richness of secluded nocturnal landscapes. Pairing an intimate soundscape with a bespoke lighting installation by Cambodian-Australian artist Allison Chhorn, this collaboration is an evocative meditation on stillness, darkness and quietude.
