From Melbourne composer James Hullick comes a post-apocalyptic chamber opera – a one-man song cycle of humanity’s end.
Out of grim and perilous darkness, a lone figure emerges: a survivor of some global collapse, tormented by a cruel final dilemma. Luminous flashes of video animate his broken existence, as he pedals furiously to screen old home movies scavenged from the wastes. Punctuated by a minimalist musical score of baritone voice, piano and cello, the tragedy of his tale gradually take ominous shape; this is the way the world ends – not with a blinding flash or rain of fire, but a slow fading of the light.
Featuring acclaimed Argentinian/German baritone Guillermo Anzorena, Australia’s Michael Kieren Harvey on piano and cellist Judith Hamann, Bruchlandung is a bold and experimental post-apocalyptic chamber opera project by wild child sonic artist/composer James Hullick.
Heavily influenced by the formal German lieder song and Japanese Noh theatre traditions, this haunting work makes its premiere at this year’s Melbourne Festival. Attendance is free, but booking is required.
A follow-up performance is being presented in Sydney at Goossens Auditorium, ABC Ultimo Studios.

THE NIS features performances by The Amplified Elephants and the BOLT Ensemble. This cutting edge multi-media experience employs electro-acoustic sound, interactive screen projections, robotic machines and video featuring performers of varying abilities, to create a highly emotive sensory experience.
at FEDERATION SQUARE
Commissioned by Federation Square, the MONOLITHICA public sonic art intervention is a project comprising of 8 events that have been designed to both showcase the talent of sound makers of varying abilities. The project explores notions of public ritual and gathering as acts of community celebration as is typified by the Stone Henge-like speaker Sculptures that frame the outdoor performances in the Upper Square of Federation Square. The notion of outdoor sonic gathering is juxtaposed against four indoor concerts in BMW Edge, highlighting the view that concert culture is a descendant of ancient public rituals. Projects feature the Amplified Elephants (musicians with an intellectual disability), the Noise Scavengers (teen sound artists from Corio) and some of Melbourne’s finest professional sonic adventurers.
