Speak Percussion: Assembly Operation (OzAsia Festival, Adelaide)

  • Space Theatre Festival Drive Adelaide, SA, 5000 Australia (map)

Internationally recognised as a leader in the fields of experimental and contemporary classical music, Speak Percussion are constantly redefining the parameters of percussion.

Assembly Operation brings together three percussionists who dutifully form an assembly line to extract exquisite sound from three iconic representations of Chinese culture: paper, ceramics and low-fi electronics. Each section draws upon the visual, sonic and conceptual qualities of the famed Chinese one yuan note. Using paper, packaging, electronic toys and traditional objects, Speak Percussion deliver a loaded sonic odyssey.
