Rupert Guenther series of artist talks


Included with General Admission | Drop-in

Join international composer-violinist Rupert Guenther in this series of behind-the-scenes artist talks.

Guenther takes participants through the process of creating music for the second concert in his unique concerts running through 2023 at Boola Bardip. 

The artist will explain and demonstrate the creative journey of taking inspirations from visual, scientific, historic and cultural evidence and turning it into an array of evocative multi-media experiences. Projected images, soundscapes, narration and music meld to create a bespoke concert experience relating to specific exhibitions at the museum.

This second behind-the-scenes artist talk is linked to Guenther's Ancient Messengers concert to be held on Sunday 7 May at 6.00 pm.

“Guenther created an Ed Sheeran-meets-Brian Cox vibe, with sinuous interweaving of melodic lines and harmonies to instill a sense of meditative wonder.” The West Australian
