Hobba, L, 48 Fugues for Frank, Museum of Old and New Art, Bond Store, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart (2010) [Curated Exhibition]

A musical homage to the life and work of Frank Zappa, composed and performed by Australia’s premier concert pianist Michael Kieran Harvey, and complemented by Lingua Franka - concrete poetry on the same theme by Arjun von Caemmerer, the presentation of 48 Fugues is a MOFO coup. An immersive environmental work, this performance/ installation will utilise all 4 floors of TMAG’s historic Bond Store. 4 different keyboards will be played over the 4 levels, with audience and performer migrating during the course of the performance. Joining this runaway Zappa bound train are Lee, O’Connor, Ward, Howlett in a programme curated by Leigh Hobba - artists with a love of Zappa music and mentality. This is a labor of love which will appeal equally to Zappaphiles and anyone else with an interest in advanced music, innovative poetry and artistic vision.
