SYDNEY LAUNCH: Glebe Justice Centre Sat 10th Sep
Performed by candle light, this will be an extra special evening as it will include beautiful visuals set to Wide Asleeps live performance. It’s a BYO venue so you can bring whatever poison you fancy and settle in for the evening. It’s so relaxed you can bring a bean bag if you really want to!.. It’s one of the only Sydney venues you can lay and listen…. Limited lounges available so get in early to secure a place for your derrière!……

 

With Wide Asleep, Hutchings has taken her compositional scope into larger realms of sound and feeling. It is her most searching work, based on ideas on consciousness between sleep and wakefulness. In her most dazzling and poignant pieces to date, Hutchings’ piano lines extend with both electricity and elegance, winding through strings, textured ambience and through beauty and vitality. Reaching further with her music than ever before……
