Sunken Dreams features two very unique and contrasting performances that fuse contemporary and classical music influences into one sensational concert.
It begins with the invigorated power of the Pacific through the contemporary arrangements of New Zealand’s Jack Body and Australia’s own Peter Sculthorpe. Audiences will enjoy genuine water percussion, including the rare waterphone and submerged gongs that will form the context for a classic work by New Zealander Jack Body. His beautifully balanced sequence of lullabies and dreams breathes the wind of the Pacific and was specially conceived for the Song Company.
Finally, the focus will shift to the northern hemisphere and the mood will entice audiences to drift away as the French impressionist era is highlighted through the work of the incomparable Claude Debussy, the musical equivalent of an impressionist painter. We delve into the heart of European impressionism using six voices and the gorgeous liquid sounds of the vibraphone.
