We are extremely pleased to announce that Sadie Harrison’s Residency at the Kunstler Bei Wu Sculpture Park in Wessenburg Germany has been generously supported by a grant from The Composers’ Fund from the Performing Rights Society Foundation. The Fund will support her work as the Park’s first Composer-in-Residence, a post evolving over two years within a vibrant, pioneering gallery-studio environment. Located in the marshlands of Wessenberg, the Park’s focus is on German and Australian sculpture with concerts exploring the relationships between music, artworks and landscape.
Sadie will be writing new works for the Bei Wu Ensemble- in-Residence, Concerto Brandenburg, including a piece for the Inauguration of the Indigenous Australian Art Gallery on 24 June 2017 in collaboration with the German and Australian Ministries of Culture and Australia Now! Festival. Other works include a violin concerto for Baroque instruments and soloist Kerstin Linder-Dewan, a set of chamber pieces in the style of Weimar Cabaret music and an extensive set of solo works to be performed outside amongst the sculptures, including a collaborative project with the Australian artist Migg Dann. The Residency has also been supported by an Arts Council England British Council International Development Grant.
