Digital ambiences with piano, brass, laptops, field recordings and Pearl River organ

Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey have collaborated for 15 years in creating music for dance, theatre and film. In This Map is Not to Scale, they amplify, extend and over-emphasise musical ephemera to write their own sonic essay. Pieces developed during a recent residency at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research frame a series of expanded moments that focus on the ‘in-betweens, underneaths and rarely mentioneds’ of their practice.

These award-winning Australian artists have collaborated with hundreds of Melbourne artists across disciplines and are the dynamic duo behind the Festival’s 2007 happening of epic proportions: John Cage’s Musicircus.
