On September 6 and 7, The Music Box Project performed two concerts at BIFEM (Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music). We opened the festival with a ‘Cushion Concert’ for children which turned out to be one of the funnest (and funniest) performances I’ve been a part of. The following night we performed new works (and one piece from 1974) to a hyper-engaged and supportive crowd. We played works by Moya Henderson, Elizabeth Jigalin, Jasmin Leung, Jaslyn Robertson and a premiere of my theatrical psychodrama, Jouska (see pic below from the second movement, ‘catharsis’). Thank you to the wonderfully willing and bizarre family of music-boxers, BIFEM and all the brave folks who faced the music, and horrendous weather. Video footage to follow.
