Final Countdown to CLARINET.BALLISTIX Concert!

In Concert Blog on August 12, 2009 at 11:59 am


Sunday’s performance is fast approaching and as a result I am suffering my usual dose of reed stress as well as trying to ensure I get a reasonable percentage of right notes! My powers of concentration are certainly going to be tested as I play for the audience in Llewellyn Hall while a camera on an eight metre boom drifts quietly past my left ear!

I am enjoying the balance of the programme, although the repertoire is certainly challenging; the more so because I am performing three of the works for the first time. I feel sure that the new compositions by Elena and Miro are going to be important and long-lasting additions to the repertoire for clarinet cello and piano; listen for the sublime beauty of the middle section of “Time is Moved.”

We keep hearing of more parties planned for Sunday during the webcast. Events are happening in Brisbane, Sydney, and Toowoomba and, we think, over breakfast in Norway! Thanks to everyone for organising these, and if you are planning something that we don’t know about please let us know so that we can say hi during the show. Be sure to take photos of yourselves, and we will post them on the site.

We would love to get your questions for the live Q&A session; you don’t have to wait for the webcast – start sending them now! Follow the links below under Musician Q&A and add your question as a comment. See you on Sunday – I’m off to do some practise!

Welcome from the Head of School

In Concert Blog on August 6, 2009 at 2:09 pm

Welcome to the ANU School of Music’s Streaming Sounds. This exciting new initiative is part of the School’s plan to engage broadly, boldly and effectively with our communities locally, nationally and internationally. Through this online presence we will be able to function as a ‘hub’ within this region helping to develop an open forum for creative and educational exchanges and collaborations. 

As part of this first Streaming Sounds concert we will also be launching our new degree, the Bachelor of Professional Music Practice. This innovative new degree will allow students to gain a range of skills that will enable them to work successfully as a 21st century music professional. Areas of specialisation will include Arts and Music Management, Instrumental Pedagogy and Creative Recording Practice.

I hope you enjoy the unique experience of Streaming Sounds and look forward to meeting you at Llewellyn Hall, or interacting with you on the World Wide Web.

Professor Adrian Walter AM
Head of School, School of Music.

Miroslav Bukovsky has finished his composition!

In Concert Blog on August 5, 2009 at 5:09 pm

Right on schedule, Miro has finished his new composition for the concert. Time is Moved is a tango for clarinet, cello and piano, the inspiration for which has come from Kenneth Slessor’s famous poem Five Bells.

The two Alans and David are excited to have the work, and rehearsals are in progress!
