Highlight & Performance

Ways of Listening

“Where words fail, music speaks.” ― Hans Christian Andersen

Music moves us in ways that can both elicit and evade linguistic interpretation. Our three Melbourne Recital Centre Writers in Residence have been putting the ‘muse’ in music by blurring, bending and breaking the rules of critical writing about the arts throughout the year.

Join us for an experimental evening of speech and sound that moves between poetry, discussion and performance as they trace the origins of their musical influences, accompanied by a diverse lineup of live music.

Presented in partnership with the Melbourne Recital Centre

Thursday 20 June, 7–8pm
