program note
This fanfare was written for the opening of the Ian Potter Southbank Centre – the new home of the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. Written for 23 brass and percussion players and fixed media, the work was written specifically to take advantage of the layout and acoustic properties of the Hanson Dyer Hall – the main recital venue within the new conservatorium. Titled The Building Revealed, this fanfare is dedicated to MCM’s Director of 10 years, Prof Gary McPherson, who has been a wonderful advocate for music at the University of Melbourne. The premiere performance was given by the MCM’s brass and percussion ensembles on 1 June 2019 for the official opening of the building.
