Inspired by experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and the huge challenges that isolation brought to musicians, we present a series of micro compositions that celebrate choral voice, performed live at the Pitt St Uniting Church.
Bagatelle is the latest work from The House That Dan Built’s ensemble, in collaboration with celebrated composer Sally Whitwell.
The human connection of singing together – with voices blended in real space and time – was lost in the ether. We had become shadows, ghosts and phantoms.
Bagatelle was CANCELLED but we have a rehearsal video . 13 emerging composers had the opportunity to work with Sally on their own choral works and then sing Sallys 5 pieces.
This video shows 5 emerging composers works. The videos are currently in Penrith at a work site that is closed so this is a trailer.
Edited 28/8 to replace place holder video with youtube high res when internet fixed in Elizabeth Bay. (Place holder video below).
Click here to see the SALT SIZZLE from our first development.
SALT is an interdisciplinary vocal installation
work of space, sculpture and choral composition that follows an emotional journey of female adolescence through discord and harmony, reflecting the fragility and strength of girls finding themselves to be women.
This recording sizzle was taken on our last rehearsal before our filming date. Which has been postponed due to COVID.
