Rosalind Appleby

The Rise of Australian Women Composers
In the early twentieth century, being a female composer was a dangerous game; one composer was diagnosed as mentally insane by her psychiatrist husband, several achieved success only after their divorces, and often the only way to get their music published was to lie about their gender. Still, the allure of writing music enticed women from all walks of life, and from the convent and the nappy-change table women began to compose.  

This presentation takes a fresh look at Australia's history and makes some startling discoveries about the contribution of women to Australian classical music. Drawing on research from her book Women of Note Rosalind puts together the missing pieces of history, sharing music and stories from women composers spanning the twentieth century to present day.

4.00pm: Clint Bracknell Sydney Conservatorium of Music - Wam Keniny (Doing a different kind of cultural dance): Studying Nyungar Song

As a Nyungar researcher, I completed doctoral investigation of the aesthetics and sustainability of Nyungar song from Western Australia’s southwest, proving the diminished but continued transmission of Nyungar song and providing the most detailed descriptions of Nyungar musical traditions to date. I found space to conduct this study via engagement with Western academia, demanding interrogation of its place within ethnomusicology.

5.00pm: Eva-Marie Perissinotto - Sounds of Another Age: Evaluating an Early Twentieth Century Recording of Tudor Choral Music

Performances of early choral music from before 1960 are often dismissed as being of poor aesthetic quality, but does the recorded evidence really warrant that label? In this presentation we will listen to a recording from the 1920s as well as one made today, and investigate exactly where they differ as well as what qualities they share.

Salon Series

Our Salon Series returns in 2017 as Head of Vocal Studies Andrew Foote leads talented young vocal students in a series of 3 intimate, salon style vocal concerts. 

A Gilbert & Sullivan Celebration

“England, at the dawn of the Victorian age.  Hansom cabs … mutton-chop whiskers … solid mahogany furniture.  An era of solidity and respectability – even in the theatre!”  

So begins the UWA Voice Students’ scripted concert of eight of the thirteen Gilbert and Sullivan operas.  Andrew Foote leads a cast of more than 20 students in a delightful assortment of solos, duets, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets and massed singing from Patience, HMS Pinafore, Princess Ida, Pirates of Penzance, Ruddigore, Yeoman of the Guard and The Mikado.  If you love your Gilbert and Sullivan – or even if you’re a sceptic – come and see why this repertoire is experiencing a revival.  Groan at the jokes, toe-tap through the night, and go home humming the tunes with a smile of your face

Martyn Evans (Trevelyan College, University of Durham) - Death, music and the ineffable

The plausible view that music conveys the ineffable was as widely-held in the nineteenth-century as it was before or since. This paper offers the suggestion that through some nineteenth-century metaphysical conjectures, death – improbably – offers a clue to understanding music’s ineffability.

Music’s intrinsic ineffability, part of the larger problem of music and meaning, is adroitly caught in Mendelssohn’s dictum that music is ‘too definite to be put into words’. But music is also a response to a wider, extrinsic, ineffability. If the ineffable emerges within experience – things that we just know, yet know (or can say) little or nothing about – it also frames our finitude. In particular, death is an event outside our experience (outside life, as Wittgenstein has it). Our experience arises without antecedents and disappears without remainder. One response to this finitude is a sense of wonder; another is, on occasion, the production of music.

We can explore this link fruitfully through Schopenhauer’s ambitious metaphysics. Proceeding from Kant, Schopenhauer reasoned his way to the inaccessible (and ineffable) ‘noumenon,’ the timeless reality that must underlie the ordinary ‘phenomenal’ world of everyday experience. If in birth we somehow fall out of the noumenal into the phenomenal, then in death we are dissolved back into it. Beyond this we can say almost nothing – yet in music, Schopenhauer believed (along with a substantial cohort within nineteenth-century metaphysics of music), we directly and uniquely glimpse the noumenal: music’s uniqueness among the arts lies chiefly here.

But from this it seems that in music we glimpse also our own post-dissolution destiny: music comprises existential songs of finite experience and transcendental songs of dissolution into the ineffable.

I shall try to elucidate and defend this provocative claim.

Dobromila Jaskot - Voice and Instrument: Organic Merging

The closest relation between the performer and the instrument in Dobromila Jaskot’s works is the subject of the presentation. It concerns a search for merged ways of expressivity by a human as an instrumental performer. How to devise a hierarchy within a single complex instrumental part? What does ‘organic’ mean? What does ‘human expressivity’ mean? Where is the limit of articulation possibilities?

Dominik Karski - Flute Physicality

Dominik Karski’s presentation focuses on his flute works, as collaborations with flautists specialising in new music have formed a significant thread in his creative work. The main aim of the talk is to illustrate how composer-performer collaboration and in-depth research into performance techniques can inform a compositional approach where the physicality of sound production is the primary source of the musical substance.

James Ledger - Shakespeare and the electric guitar

I was commissioned to write a work for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. The resultant work "Hollow Kings", is a four-movement work that explores and responds to speeches given by four of Shakespeare's kings. The orchestration includes electric guitar. I thought of this instrument as a modern-day lute, an instrument that was symbolically significant in the Elizabethan era.  In the work, I have drawn parallels with the modern-day instrument and it's ancestor through references in Shakespeare's plays.

Presented in association with the Harp Society of WA

Jacinta Dennett: Illuminating Significative Utterance in Performance

In this presentation that relates to her PhD research, Jacinta Dennett will advocate the sonic and expressive qualities of the modern concert harp through the performance and recordings of selected solo repertoire for the instrument. Helen Gifford’s Fable (1967) for harp solo will provide the lens through which a deeper enquiry into performance is sought. The research process will involve a study of Helen Gifford’s oeuvre, its critical reception authenticated by performance reviews, published and archival documents, radio broadcasts and transcriptions of interviews, and interviews between the performer and the composer herself. Using Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom (1894), in particular his theory of ‘moral imagination,’ this path of investigation will lay hold of music performance as the focus for developing an epistemology after the model of a fable, where discovery is self-initiated rather than delivered. What insights (inner sight or wisdom), does a study of Helen Gifford’s Fable (1967) reveal? 

Jacinta Dennett is Harp Tutor at Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the Australian National Academy of Music

Philip Murray - French Symbolist affinities in a late work of Toru Takemitsu: an examination of And then I knew ‘twas Wind for flute, viola and harp.

Toru Takemitsu acknowledged Debussy as a major influence, yet evidence of this influence in Takemitsu’s music is not as obvious as is often assumed. Philip Murray’s DMA research examines various aspects of Takemitsu’s late style, taking as its starting point a comparison between And then I knew ‘twas Wind and Debussy’s Sonata for flute, viola and harp. It will be suggested that an understanding of the impact of French Symbolist theories of poetic language on Debussy’s musical style can offer new insights into Takemitsu’s aesthetics.
