In residence at Bundanon

During this residency Harry Cook and Claire Cross will collaborate to develop a new work for their duo project ‘Dialect’. Together they will explore techniques and approaches to bridge their shared musical interests, to create performance vehicles for them to explore the complexities, challenges and joys of sharing both a musical & intimate relationship. Together through sound they will explore unspoken dialogue and build their own language. Interweaving the textures and timbres of the piano and electric bass, the duo will aim to reframe the possibilities of this unusual combination through immersive folk-like compositions.
