The Song Company – Power Chords Attached

Street Theatre Canberra
Saturday 11 May at 7.30pm

Power Chords Attached is a dynamic collaboration across genres sparked by a uniting interest in the deep resonances of vocal cords, struck strings, and powerful harmonies. 

Antony Pitts talks to Barbie Robinson

The Song Company joins forces with The Omnific (Matthew Fackrell and Toby Peterson-Stewart) from Melbourne for a resonant mix of plainchant, dynamic basslines, and 12th-century organum from Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Together they will perform an inspired arrangement of 12th century composer Magister Pérotin’s masterpiece Viderunt omnes, echoed by a high soprano in his most haunting of songs, Beata viscera. French composer Pérotin is known as having introduced the composition of polyphony in four parts into Western Music.
