PERFORMANCE: UWA Music presents: Piñata Percussion | Loops and Rebounds
Join us for a celebration of Australian music featuring works by David Pye
PiÃƒÂ±ata Percussion is the resident percussion ensemble at UWA. Each year, PiÃƒÂ±ataâ€™s concert season is opened with a program of new and existing works for percussion ensemble by Australian composers, allowing engagement with the nationâ€™s leading creative minds in percussion composition and performance.
In 2018, PiÃƒÂ±ata 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 PiÃƒÂ±ata in February and March. This program celebrates his significant contributions to Australian music with two works: Pyeâ€™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 PiÃƒÂ±ata ahead of Tanâ€™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.
