Take a plunge into the deepest blue to discover churning waves, eerie calm and some of the greatest wonders of music of the sea.
Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, John Luther Adams’ expansive orchestral work Become Ocean is an intimate sonic journey, a musical meditation on the mysterious tides of existence. Britten’s evocative Four Sea Interludes and a world premiere from West Australian composer Olivia Davies complete this immersive program.
WASO & WAYO Side-by-Side partnership supported by Woodside. Presented in association with Perth Festival. Olivia Davies’ New Work commissioned for WASO by Prue Ashurst.
