BEATRIZ FERREYRA IN AU THIS MONTH

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). At the end how this tenure, Ferreyra set about creating a body of work that is only now coming to be fully recognised and appreciated. This is her very first time to perform in Australia! She will perform two sets of multi-channel sound works from across her career.
