Curated by Lawrence English, at this year’s Rising Festival there will be numerous performances of Lockwood’s Piano Transplants, which are seminal sound works that expand the art of composition’s edges to include the chaotic addition of natural forces. At sites across Melbourne, three of Lockwood’s Transplants — Piano Burning, Piano Drowning and Piano Garden will see the grand instrument overwhelmed by plants, submerged by water and consumed by fire. It’s pretty incredible. You can find more about these free events here.
