What might architecture sound like?

Listen to the sounds of Linden’s gallery walls in the performances of Sub Decorative Sequencesby Cat Hope. Inspired by the decorative elements of Linden’s interior and exterior design, Hope has created graphic scores that will be performed by musicians in a series of special events.

Saturday 20 July, 2PM > Karina Utomo, Sage Pbbt and Judith Dodsworth

These three outstanding vocalists featured in Cat’s opera ‘Speechless’, which premiered as part of the Perth Festival earlier this year.  Mixing styles as diverse as death metal, throat singing and classical music, these artists come together to interpret Sub Decorative Sequences I-II.

Saturday 10 August, 2PM > Mary Doumany (Harp)

Mary Doumany is a remarkable harpist and vocalist, whose performance will create a different take on the Sub Decorative Sequences III-IV.
