Evening 4, Sacred Sound Journey

Sarah Hopkins – cello, harmonic voice, whirlies, bells

TUNNEL NUMBER FIVE, Festival of Underground Music

is a series of five underground concerts – sonic adventures staged within Darwin’s haunting WWII Oil Storage Tunnels. Directed by Anne Norman, the project combines exceptional musical talent from across Australia to deliver new and culturally diverse sound-scapes, responding to the reverberant tunnel itself, surprising the audience and performers alike. A series of standing waves of delicate sounds wash over the audience, bouncing off both ends of the tunnel and returning in new patterns of interference, building in intensity and eventually dying to a whispered magic. This is an acoustically breathtaking listening experience.

Tunnel Number Five:  A Festival of Underground Music is for audiences seeking unplugged music in a reverberant subterranean venue with an emphasis on music both contemporary and traditional; contemplative and unusual.

Join us to explore intimate music-making up close, with guests scattered between the performers within a most unique acoustic structure. The site itself becomes a performer: a venue 172m x 4m providing a highly ambient and unique architectural amplification. Audience members place their own seat within the length of the tunnel, ensuring a unique listening experience. Each concert has an interval in which the audience is invited to relocate their seat for a new listening perspective.

Be sure to bring a seat from home as there are limited seats available.
