Marcus Fjellström visits Melbourne
We are thrilled to announce that rising Swedish composer and multimedia artist Marcus Fjellström will be joining Rubiks for their upcoming event, Imaginarium. Supported by the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music’s New Music Studio, this portrait concert will feature Marcus Fjellström’s exclusive Australian appearance and the Australian premieres of two of his works.
Fjellström’s work draws on a diverse range of influences, ranging from Aphex Twin and Autechre to Ligeti and Debussy. Since completing his first major audiovisual work in 2008, Fjellström has continued to challenge the gap between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture, the naïve and the sophisticated, good and bad taste. The chamber and solo works presented in this portrait concert showcase Fjellström’s masterful combinations of acoustic instruments, electronic scores and his own unique animations. By turns playful, humorous, disturbing and touching, Fjellström’s works explore the intersection between contemporary music, the occult, cartoons, nightmares, video games, and children's drawings in a cross-media presentation that captivates the senses.
