About the event
Set in Brisbane’s hidden gem, the Red Box at the State Library of Queensland, with views of the river city’s nightlights with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, Colour Through is an exquisitely curated performance highlight of Muses Trio’s birthday year, celebrating a decade of music exclusively performed and composed by women.
How is colour evoked through music? How are shades such as Pale Yellow, Fiery Red, Blue Silence, or Pearl expressed through sound? Can a colour-notated musical score change creative expression? What movie do you see in your mind while listening to the soundtrack to an imaginary film? Colour Through is a vibrant exploration of colour depicted through music and (imaginary) film, featuring a world premiere by emerging Brisbane composer, Frankie Dyson-Reilly, alongside works by Elena Kats-Chernin (AUS), Sally Whitwell (AUS), Nicole Murphy (AUS), and Jennifer Higdon (USA).
Colour Through offers curious arts lovers the inimitable experience of live chamber music in the stunning Red Box, celebrating the river city with a glittering backdrop over South Bank for an experience to treasure. This program is supported by The Creative Sparks Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council to support local arts and culture in Brisbane.
