RONE in Geelong by Geelong Symphony Orchestra
Musician and composer Nick Batterham has developed a suite of three pieces of classical music for the soundtrack to RONE in Geelong.
In response to Rone's exhibition concept of the abandoned function room with its two opposing ends of light and dark, the music features two separate ensembles that play off each other in a musical conversation of layered reflections and repetitions.
At the dark end of the room is the piano, augmented by wind and brass, while at the light end plays a string quartet.
Members of the Geelong Symphony Orchestra will perform a selection of musical arrangements composed and written exclusively for RONE in Geelong and Rone’s 2019 Empire project by Melbourne-based musician and sound designer, Nick Batterham.
Guests will be asked to adhere to Geelong Gallery’s COVID safety procedures and are required to check-in upon arrival.
