Curator’s Floor Talk, How it plays: Innovations in percussion
Gate 13, Royal Parade
Join Curator, Exhibitions and Collections, Dr Heather Gaunt, for a tour of How it plays: Innovations in percussion - a collaborative exhibition and performance project at the Grainger Museum, featuring Federation Handbells (Museums Victoria/Creative Victoria), Speak Percussion, Faculty of Fine Arts and Music and the University's Melbourne School of Design. Dr Gaunt will provide insight into the many collaborations involved in creating this exhibition project, including important programming elements with key partners. Bridging the chasm from Percy Grainger’s experiments in ‘tuneful percussion’ in the early twentieth century to the innovative performance of contemporary ensembles such as Speak Percussion, this program will highlight key pioneers who have changed the way we all see, hear and play music.
