What on Earth is Botanic Philharmonica?

Sunday 1st September / presented by Bec Bowman

Botanic Philharmonia brings together two of Claire Gillam's musical installation pieces, Plant Band (2017) and Maestro (2019). This fantastical collaboration of native flora, processing synthesizers and specially designed robotic instruments explores the possibilities of plant creative performance and generative music making. 

The installation is part of the What on Earth project; a series of events, exhibitions and workshops across Perth which celebrates the natural and botanical world across a variety of art forms.

Communications officer for Mundaring and Midland Junction Arts CentreJess Boyce, and artist Claire joined Bec for Artbeat and told us all about their artistic endeavours and workshops.
