Steve Stelios Adam: PRISON JOB
Choir, electronics, instrumental ensemble
In 2022 Astra received a grant from Creative Victoria/RAV to commission Steve Stelios Adams, a foundational figure of Australian electro-acoustic music and computer sound-processing. His new work for singers, instrumentalists, and live electronics, is based on the published writings in Greece of his great-aunt Elli Pappa, from “Doulia tis Filakis” (Prison Job) - reflecting experiences in the political and cultural turbulence of post-war Greece of the 1950s and -60s. This program includes a new work by Sydney composer Andree Greenwell.
