MONO: Offsite

A triple bill of solo performances featuring Vanessa Tomlinson, Robin Fox and Lawrence English.

With border closures in place, it’s with a heavy heart we announce that Chris Abrahams won’t be able to join us for MONO: Offsite. (We’ll have him up later on, don’t worry!)

In his place, Brisbane Festival is pleased to announce a triple bill of solo performances featuring Vanessa Tomlinson, Robin Fox and Lawrence English.

Vanessa Tomlinson will extend her Percussion At Dusk studies of deep gong resonation, with an intimate solo piece for tam tam.

Armed with a small modular and a laptop, Robin Fox has prepared for his first solo audio show in almost half a decade for this year’s Brisbane Festival. He doesn't know what to expect and neither should you. 

Lawrence English’s love affair with the Old Museum’s organ has been well documented on numerous recordings including this year’s Lassitude. He will present a special live version of his reductive exercise in minimalist organ manipulation. It’s a world premiere!

#The Listening Études

Lawrence English (Room 40)

In a year of unprecedented quietening, it seems apt to focus our listening and reach out into the world through our ears. As the world slowed, and as the ambient noise of our city fell away, a new and expanded sense of the sonic in our everyday lives became available. As the world reawakens, composer and artist Lawrence English curates a series of durational site-and situation-specific sound happenings to celebrate this sense of deeper listening.
