“A virtuosic, mind-expanding performance from a leading, world-renowned Australian ensemble.”Limelight

Speak Percussion, Australia’s most innovative percussive arts organization which is widely recognized as a leader in the fields of experimental, interdisciplinary and contemporary classical music, has taken United Kingdom, Switzerland, Indonesia as well as Singapore by storm and is now making its first appearance in Penang, Malaysia.

Speak Percussion brings you one of its most prominent touring productions, Fluorophone, a collection of stark, minimal works composed for fluorescent tubes, strobes, electrical circuits as well as other surprising and at times volatile musical instruments. The performers play in complete darkness, lit only by intermittent flashes of white light in conjunction with
electricity generated sonic snaps.

Fluorophone creates a kaleidoscopic sound world in which the central instruments radiate, flicker, glow and burn. Analogue and digital fluorescent lights, the naked flame, strobe lights and custom-built LED discs are combined with percussion to create a programme in which the music and lighting design are one and the same. Fluorophone moves between noise, theatrical music and virtuosic instrumentalism, in a synesthetic display of light and sound.
