Creation in Isolation: Old Quad tracks a new world of isolated composition

Despite the limitations of this global pandemic, the show must go on! University of Melbourne music students and alumni have used their time in isolation to create bespoke pieces of music reflecting on the COVID-19 situation as part of the Creation in Isolation project.

Hear these new compositions and listen to the students speak to their practice via the Old Quad’s website.

This digital presentation was prepared as part of the upcoming Multivocal exhibition at Old Quad. Multivocal celebrates the creation, performance and experience of music at the University of Melbourne, past and present. Multivocal will be opening soon at Old Quad in collaboration with the Grainger Museum.
