Towards Eternity

A project curated by Genevieve Lacey

 

Towards Eternity is a musical meditation spanning a millennium: a soulful, joyful tracing of our most ineffable selves. It reveals secrets, yearnings, rapture and ecstasy. Deep listening invites a sense of timelessness. Music creates passageways both out of our earthly state, and into our most human longings.

PRAISE FOR GENEVIEVE LACEY:

“… Genevieve Lacey shows just how it is done – beautiful sound, clear pitch and a musical intelligence that is unswerving…”
— The Australian

Towards Eternity is supported by City of Melbourne Arts Grants.
