A unique and new way of presenting musical concerts is coming to Bunbury with workshops also to be held for budding musicians. 

Expect adventurous work by a new generation of experimental musicians, ranging from improvised performances to precise electro-accoustic compositions.

Outcome Unknown presented by composer Eduardo Cossio with a collection of musicians will be performed on February 18 at the Bunbury Regional Arts Galleries.

Cossio who studied composition at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts described the concert series as a meeting place for collaboration.

“It’s kind of a place for audiences to see things that are a little bit more hybrid,” he said.  

“It’s our first time outside of Perth, because we would love to have a wide network of collaboration for experimental music in the South West.

“It’s a very lovely creative line-up and I think they have a lot to offer.”

Cossio said he was looking forward to visiting Bunbury after running the concert series in Perth for the past 16 months. 

“When we come to Bunbury we’ll be doing workshops of improvisation and trying to share this practice with people of all ages and experiences,” he said.  

“We are looking to meet people and play in collaboration – the concerts are laid back with a really friendly atmosphere and we’re approaching the instruments in a very personal way.

“Our composers will be sharing their pieces and also among the line-up there are some amazing instrumentalists with different backgrounds including jazz and pop.”

The workshops will be centred around improvisation with some performances where the musicians will discuss how they approach the stage, the techniques and their own practices.

A question and answer session will also be part of the workshop as well as guided listening exercises, structured improvisation and free play.

The workshop is open to all ages and skills and will be held at 2pm before the concert at 6pm.
