'Do You See What I Hear?' (#DYSWIH) project is about art, music, interpretations and engagement. It began with explorations in graphic notation and improvisation and continues to present original ideas in various contexts.
#DYSWIH project has been featured in various formats both in Australia and internationally, including Notations21 European Tour & Symposium in Utrecht, the Netherlands; Festival of Slow Music and Art Gallery of Ballarat in Ballarat; Shepparton Art Museum; Waranga Film Festival in Rushworth; La Mama Musica series, Chapel Street ArtTown, Tilde New Music Festival and the community of Surrey Hills in Melbourne; and with HK New Music Ensemble.
In 2017 #DYSWIH joined international 90th birthday celebrations for composers Earle Brown and Morton Feldman in a performance of music and dance, supported by the Earle Brown Music Foundation. The not-for-profit event featured graphic scores FOLIO and 4 Systems, Feldman's King of Denmark, and a new work in their honour, For E.B. & M.F. by Warren Burt and myself. In 2018 we performed the program again at New Music Studio series, The University of Melbourne.
Starting 2016 #DYSWIH celebrated composer Benjamin Boretz's 80th birthday with a series of events involving his text If I am a musical thinker, which was an important influence to this project.
