Fringe World Festival: Cinematic Scores IV and more
Listen/Hear Collective is co-presenting an awesome evening with Parentheses Records and PS Art Space in Fremantle on Feb 22 at 8pm as a part of the Perth Fringe World Festival.
Part new media installation, part performance, The Cinematic Scores offer a unique marriage of film and music. Musical ensembles are invited to respond to a selection of short silent films from the public domain by composing an original score for each of the moving pictures. Presented as a cinematic installation within the monumental ground floor of PS Art Space, the experience is mesmerising and deeply poetic. It is cinema like you have not experienced before.
This will be the fourth chapter of the Cinematic Scores, which has been hugely successful at its home of PS Art Space over the past two years, this year featuring Johannes Luebbers, Mace Francis and Kynan Tan. This promises to be a great night so head on down and don't miss out!
Also as a part of the exciting Perth Fringe World Festival, Johannes Luebbers has also composed the music to an exciting dance performance titled 'Hunger' which will be on show 21 and 22 Feb at 6.30pm at the Blue Room Theatre in Northbridge.
Performed by classically trained Chinese contemporary dancer Min Zhu and actor, dancer and improviser Or Kittikong from Thailand. Direct from the Bangkok Theatre Festival, Hunger is a new movement work exploring love, happiness and our constant desire for more.

Tilman Robinson’s ‘Network of Lines’ – out now!
As our last release for 2013, sneaking in as we count down to the new year, Listen/Hear is pleased to announce the release of the debut album from Tilman Robinson – Network of Lines.
Inspired by the iconic 1979 work “If on a winter’s night a traveller” by Italo Calvino, the debut album from Tilman Robinson has been described as a ‘most moving and extraordinary experience’. Composed in 2012 for the APRA Melbourne Jazz Fringe commission, the work sonically responds to the themes and spirit of this postmodern classic, giving musical life to Calvino’s masterpiece. Avoiding the literal and tokenistic, Robinson subtly transforms Calvino’s work, creating something truly unique. Calvino’s words pass through Robinson’s musical prism creating an aural narrative that, while in debt to its muse, carves out its own identity.
Recorded with a cast of some of Australia’s most outstanding musicians the album will digitally release on December 31, 2013, with it’s official launch at the Melbourne Recital Centre on February 11, 2014.
The Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre
