Stunning music and visuals combine in this intimate recital performance.

When We Speak  re-casts our ideas of beauty, gesture and expression through 21st century music-making. Katherine Philp, Principal cellist of Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra performs a solo recital of stunning, recently-written music, where electroacoustic and amplified sound effortlessly melds with film and animation. 

Lisa Cheney’s, When We Speak comments on broader issues surrounding gender inequality. The atmospheric soundscape interweaves the composer’s own musical language, includes Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, as well as the live cellist’s expression and voice.
