ALICE IN ANTARTICTICA CONCERT

Published by under Events,Music

Alice Giles will be performing at the Llewellyn Hall, Canberra on June 26th as part of the Antarctic Music Festival.  ‘Alice in Antartica’ is a performance piece which Alice created for a live concert at Mawson Station, Antarctica, earlier this year as a tribute to her grandfather C.T. Madigan and his role in the Mawson expedition. ‘Alice in Antarctica’ includes readings from Madigan’s diaries and pieces/songs that he mentions there, newly composed works for electro-acoustic harp by Australian composers Prof. Larry Sitsky, Jim Cotter, Martin Wesley-Smith and Joshua McHugh; and a new transcription by Nigel Westlake. This will be the Australian premiere of these works and will include the added element of images and sound recordings from Alice’s own voyage.  For further information, click on the image.
