  • Late Night Library: Story Soundscapes
    Wednesday 3 August 2016
  • Book now

    Bertie Blackman is a unique multi-disciplinary artist with commercial and independent success as a singer-songwriter, visual artist, composer, and filmmaker. She is also a writer, currently finishing her first children’s story book.

    Musica Viva has invited Bertie to work with its ensemble the Arcadia Quintet, and emerging Sydney composer Elizabeth Younan, to re-imagine her book as a multi-faceted artwork including new arrangements of Bertie’s music. Bertie will read parts of her story and then join the Quintet to perform the musical soundscape that Elizabeth has interpreted from Bertie’s words.

    This event is part of Late Night Library’s winter season of unique musical encounters. Talented musicians, composers and artists explore ideas around culture, health and literature through music.

    Presented by Musica Viva and City of Sydney Library.

    Settle in to the Customs House Reading Room and rediscover Sydney’s history in the words of those who lived in here.
