Metropolis Festival 2013 – Matthew Herbert/ Mira Calix – Melbourne Recital Centre


The Metropolis Festival, presented by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, is a Festival of New Music. Last year they brought out Steve Reich. This year they surprised with some bold and unexpected decisions, people who you wouldn’t traditionally equate with modern composition. With three artists in residence from London they featured performances from prodigious composer, conductor and pianist Thomas Ades, sample-based electronic producer Matthew Herbert and idiosyncratic electronic artist Mira Calix. Bob Baker Fish managed to get along to a couple of performances from the latter two.
