Rubiks This Soft Eclipse

This soft eCLipse

‘What has been long neglected cannot be restored immediately.’ Eve Belgarian, Five Things. Last year, our relationships with natural, domestic and digital spaces changed abruptly. This Soft Eclipse is a program that reflects on our capacity to endure, restore and evolve. In a sonic and visual journey touching on climate change, pop culture and musical icons, Rubiks presents works by new music luminaries Eve Belgarian and Nicole Lizée, and premieres from two of the world’s most adventurous young compositional voices – including the winners of the 2019 Pythia Prize and 2020-21 Bouman Fellow Akari Komura.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Rubiks Collective
