The Music Box Project - upstairs at The Glebe

curated by Joseph Franklin.

in 2019, make your way up the stairs at the glebe hotel (formerly australian youth hotel) on the second saturday afternoon of the month for gatherings exploring music outside the usual order of things by the music box project and friends.

open the music box…who knows what you might find. sydney-based ‘the music box project’ is a curious collective of early career musicians presenting creative, community driven and collaborative musical experiences. increasingly recognised as keen collaborators and instigators of creative music making, the music box project has premiered works of local, national and international early career composers whilst continuing to re-invent established works in a new light.

The major component of Sydney composer | performer collective The Music Box Project’s 2019 BIFEM début is an immersive event featuring world premieres from two of the collective, as well as rising star composers, Brisbane-based Jasmin Leung and Melbourne-based Jaslyn Robertson. Some 45 years after it was composed, and rounding out the programme, is the Australian premiere of iconic Australian composer Moya Henderson’s Clearing the Air. These works speak to each other across two generations and BIFEM audiences are all the richer for the exchange.

THE MUSIC BOX PROJECT

As part of their residency at 2019 BIFEM, Sydney composer | performer collective The Music Box Project open this year’s festival with our 6th annual Cushion Concert, BIFEM’s next generation programme for pre-school audiences and their adult companions.

The Cushion Concert remains one of the most hotly contested performance opportunities for BIFEM artists. Holding the attention of an adult audience is a coded and negotiated space, but holding a group of under-5-year-olds’ attention really means you have to perform!

The exploratory collectivism that is the heart of The Music Box Project promises to deliver one of our best Cushion Concerts to date!
