Special Event and Performance / 2022 / Australia / 60min / Performed by Decibel New Music Ensemble
Decibel New Music Ensemble, like many other ensembles and art organisations, had its activity for 2020 cancelled. 2 Minutes from Home is what they did instead – commissioning two-minute works from artists they have worked with in the past – one work per fortnight from July to December 2020.
Each work was presented as a video release on social media, showing the ensembles playing their parts in their homes, alongside the score.
Listeners can follow the music as the musicians play it, and enjoy the wide range of notational approaches the range of composers bring.
In 2022, Decibel are performing these new works live in a single world premiere program, with the score videos as film. Be prepared for a wide range of musical styles, performance approaches, and snippets of interviews from the artists between tracks.
