The IMA and Room40 present MONO 28 with Beatriz Ferreyra.

Argentine-born, French-based composer Beatriz Ferreyra is a musique concrète pioneer. Now in her eighties, her works presented in an octophonic sound array typify an intensity of sonic practice that exemplifies this music’s deepest concerns.

Don’t miss Ferreyra’s first ever appearance in Australia where she will perform two sets of multi-channel sound works from across her career.

Biography:
Beatriz Ferreyra’s legacy is as surprising as it is inspiring. Her solo compositions, which explore the material nature of sound in space, are dynamic and powerful affairs; rich in detail and texture. As a member of Group of Musical Researches (G.R.M) in the 1960s, she worked under the leadership of Pierre Schaeffer and contributed to Schaeffer’s seminal text « Traité des Objets Musicaux » (1966), as well as his realisation of his work « Solfège de l’Objet Sonore » (1967).

MONO is a program of sound curated by Lawrence English.
