Music: From a Small, Distant World

Written and performed by Rachael Dease
With Brian Kruger, Hayley-Jane Ayres, Aaron Wyatt, Tristan Parr and Jozef Grech
Art Gallery of Western Australia until 31 January


There is something ethereal about Rachael Dease, the West Australian composer/performance artist who won the inaugural Martin Sims award for City of Shadows at the 2012 Fringe.
Her mesmeric aura and powerful mezzo-soprano voice give her a potent stage presence, and a high musical intelligence and cultural literacy inform all her work.
Dease takes her otherworldliness to a cosmic level with From a Small, Distant World, a suite of eleven songs inspired by the Voyager project that sent two satellites to Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus in 1977.
