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.
