Bell Curve is a work for twelve spatialised bell players composed by Eugene Ughetti, Artistic Director of Speak Percussion. Twelve independent parts are controlled by networked wireless click tracks to create a complex exchange of rhythmic and spatial structures.
Speak Percussion has shaped the sound of 21st century Australian percussion music through the creation and presentation of ambitious arts projects. Internationally recognised as a leader in the fields of experimental and contemporary classical music, Speak are constantly seeking to redefine the potential of percussion. Ranging from solo concerts to massed sound events, Speak Percussion’s “breathtakingly impressive” (The West Australian) work is presented throughout the world in concert halls, theatres, galleries and site-specific locations.
This performance of Bell Curve is a collaboration between Speak Percussion, student at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the Grainger Museum.
This free event forms part of the public programs for How it plays: Innovations in percussion, currently on display at the Grainger Museum. For bookings, please see our Eventbrite page.
