Zephyr Quartet


Presented by Zephyr Quartet in association with Vitalstatistix

Zephyr Quartet presents their critically acclaimed 2014 project Between Light in the beautiful Waterside Workers Hall.

Between Light commissioned five Australian artists to create new work for Zephyr Quartet, exploring notions of light and dark in their work, taking the Italian art term ‘chiaroscuro’ as a genesis.

The composers – Andrea Keller, Tony Gould, Stephen Magnusson, Matt Keegan and Lyndon Gray – were encouraged to experiment with improvised, semi-improvised and fully scored music in their works.

First presented at the historic Queen’s Theatre, Zephyr Quartet worked with esteemed lighting designer Geoff Cobham and his team, to create a series of unique performance spaces to house each of the five pieces. Geoff returns to the project to create beautiful spaces within Waterside for this immersive promenade concert that visually and sonically explores the chiaroscuro of art and life.

Zephyr Quartet is committed to making our events accessible, however, due to the nature of Between Light as a promenade piece and the historic venue, there is a section of the work which is only accessible by stairs.
