GUITARCHESTRA (working title) is an inter-generational electric guitar ensemble made up of 100 local community members from the City of Mitcham. Conceived and led by composer Matthew Timmis, the work will engage a diversity of amateur guitarists in the creation of an immersive multi-phonic, sound work.
The project draws on popular culture’s obsession with the electric guitar and will explore the relationship between the performer and audience through an inclusive process and performance outcome. Fundamentally it’s attempting to draw together individual players of all ages to create something that wouldn’t ordinarily happen.
Project supported by the City of Mitcham
To be presented in September 2019
