'MULTITUDES' RESIDENCY IV: NIGHT HERONS
We're delighted to welcome violist and curator Katie Yap for our November residency. Katie was the winner of the 2022 Freedman Fellowship. Her Freedman project, Multitudes, explores the nexus of folk, baroque, and new music styles, and a life-long fascination with improvisation.
Katie has created four new works through collaborative composition with partners in crime Emily Sheppard (fiddle/voice), Donald Nicolson (harpsichord/electronics), Bowerbird Collective (violin and cello), and Mindy Meng Wang (guzheng), exploring themes of cultural identity, environmental storytelling and activism, and the physical joy of music-making.
Each work is based on one of Judith Wright’s bird poems, which her mother introduced to her, along with a love of birds themselves.
