Hanson Dyer Hall | Melbourne, Australia
This evening of music and discussion features the work of Leilehua Lanzilotti, a Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) composer / sound artist dedicated to the arts of our time. A "leading composer-performer" (The New York Times), Lanzilotti's work is characterized by expansive explorations of timbre. Lanzilotti's practice explores radical indigenous contemporaneity by integrating community engagement and ways of knowing into the heart of projects.

Leilehua's residency in Melbourne is supported by the Macgeorge Bequest. She currently in Melbourne on a Macgeorge fellowship working on her opera Lili'u, celebrating the legacy of the last queen of Hawai'I, Queen Lili'uokalani.
