Running time: 45 minutes, no interval A fusion of social documentary, art, biological science and music, 'Dead Symphony' is an extraordinary sound, music and light performance played by the internationally renowned ensemble Apartment House. Sound is understood to be the last sense present moments before death. For two years, Australian artist Saskia Moore spoke with people from all over the world who had encountered near death experiences and transcribed their musical and sound impressions. The resulting work for voice, cello, harp, marimba, keyboards and electronics is a contemporary symphony that is lyrical, abstract and beautiful. Dead Symphony has been programmed to complement Lakeside's production of Inside out of Mind.
