INTIMATE DECISIONS Brett Dean, Lotte Bretts-Dean

Brett Dean, Lotte Bretts-Dean

The Absences cycle, curated by Desclasificados, invokes and summons current music artists and programs that are related to what is not heard. Since its inception, music has tried to give voice to the least heard and also to forgotten or silenced sounds, but they are not usually common in concert halls. With these absent voices we want to help balance that balance with repertoires and works that revolve around the unheard, the forgotten, both in a musical, philosophical and political sense.
