Dronescape by Trevor Brown at Spektrum Berlin / Saturday, 30.09.2017
This September at Spektrum D/B Presents Dronescape by Australian freelance composer, multi-instrumentalist, improviser and sound designer Trevor Brown. A microtonal durational live drone performance using a wide array of brass and wind instruments including baritone, alto, soprano saxes, bass, treble clarinets alto, treble flutes and laptop.
Inspired by work in Indigenous communities over the last 25 years and also, over the last four years, in Istria, a tiny region in west Croatia, whose microtonal scale has been listed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, as well as explorations in Pythagorian Harmonics and Just Intonation, the slowly evolving work builds on natural harmonies and subtracted or interpolated fundamentals, it flows between sublime and challenging sonorities at an almost imperceptible rate.
Since June 2017 Trevor has been based in Vienna, working on several projects in Italy, Austria, Croatia and Germany. I will be the musical director for Sedam Dana Stravanja, an arts incubation festival in Pazin, Croatia. In 2016 he worked with some notable creators, composing and performing music for Chiara Guidi’s “Jack and the Bean Stalk” at the Sydney Opera House, I worked and recorded with Markus Stockhausen in Hannover and Cologne. Trevor also created work for Ars Electonica in Linz, collaboration with Haaken Lidbo, Tracy Readhead and Ginger Leigh.
