"An intimate miracle" RealTime
Underground combines the intimacy of a small concert, with the beauty and intrigue of Rosemary Joy's hand-crafted percussive sculptures and music by composer David Young.Undergound has been performed in Japan, Mexico, Belgium, the Netherlands, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
Part of a series of sculptural percussion works created by Rosemary Underground is performed with the musicians and audience seated opposite each other with the sculptural percussion instruments on a table between them. This strangely familiar setting invites the audience to listen to subtle and intricate sounds in a completely different way.
