PERFORMANCE: UWA Music presents: Piñata Percussion | Loops and Rebounds
Join us for a celebration of Australian music featuring works by David Pye
Piñata Percussion is the resident percussion ensemble at UWA. Each year, Piñata’s concert season is opened with a program of new and existing works for percussion ensemble by Australian composers, allowing engagement with the nation’s leading creative minds in percussion composition and performance.
In 2018, Piñata celebrates the music of David Pye, an influential figure in Australian new music since the 1980s. For three decades, Pye led a number of ensembles and projects from Fremantle, playing a pivotal role in establishing the flourishing percussion scene in WA. Pye will be artist-in-residence with Piñata in February and March. This program celebrates his significant contributions to Australian music with two works: Pye’s 2003 percussion masterpiece 'rebana loops' and the world premiere of 'octet 112358'.
The program also features a new work from UWA graduate Adam Tan workshopped and developed for Piñata ahead of Tan’s residency in Florida at the Florida Mallet Lab Summer Intensive in May, alongside works by artists from around Australia including Timothy Constable, Nigel Westlake, Vanessa Tomlinson.
