Live Studio and Performances
Nexas Quartet presents a carefully selected range of contemporary music arranged/composed by Phillip Glass, Arvo part, Tim Dargaville and Manuel the Falla under the concept of ‘Rituals and Mysticisms’ from around the world. Gregorian chants, Balinese ritual music and the music from Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance will set the atmosphere while visual artist Matt Chun creates a piece of art in a live studio, and audiences witness the process.
