La Mama Musica is one of Melbourne’s longest running music nights, in operation since 1969? These days it is a curated monthly concert series showcasing creative music, improvising musicians and sound-artists at La Mama’s Theatre and Courthouse venues. The intimate settings and fabulous acoustics of La Mama’s two historic theatres allows fine musicians to perform in a very special environment, amidst the set of the current theatre production – so improvisation and flexibility of presentation is also part of our process. The series has been organised by the curatorial team of Annabel Warmington and Adrian Sherriff for more than a dozen years, who like to encourage unusual collaborations and value the history of the Musica and are thrilled to offer participating artists opportunities often unavailable in conventional music venues: for musical artists of all genres (and ages) to explore and develop new work and production values with an audience appreciative of these aspects.
Curated by Annabel Warmington, Adrian Sherriff and Anthony Schulz, all submission to participate are welcome.
