Waiting

Waiting, a setting of text by Sue Woolfe, has been accepted for performance by Hamish Gould (counter-tenor) at a live concert at St James Old Cathedral, West Melbourne on April 24th 2021.

The lyrics reveal the thoughts of a handyman with chronic social anxiety, who is somewhat creepily voyeuristic, as he longs to interact with the woman he loves.

Waiting was jointly commissioned by Panoramic Music and the Melbourne Composer’s League with funding provided by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.

The song is composed for counter-tenor, accompanied by alto recorder, and digital samplers, all originally designed to be played live by human performers.

However, the virus times have affected the presentation of Waiting as much as anything else, in that the vocalist, Hamish Gould, wanted the concert to go ahead in any circumstances. Because of the pandemic, rehearsing and performing with other players could be problematic (given that currently Australian residents are still being infected with Covid-19).

So Hamish is live in performance and everything else is digital.

The concert begins at 4.30pm.

Ticket prices: $35 full or $20 concession.
The concert will also be live-streamed for free.

Is the growing city really progress or is it closing the door on old ways which might still be of value?

The Gallery exhibits itself as a post-conceptual place where ‘Artistic Expression’ squares off against ‘High Art’. Galleries amass reputations and memories as exhibitions come and go. This work taps, denotes and speaks the volumes from the gallery’s collective memory. Transitory expressions that have passed through its doors appear to linger. As surprising and distinctive forms emerge from the walls one can actually hear ideas pulse and roll to the auditory surface of the space.
