Event Details

The End of Torpor + The Emerald Ruby + Naomi Dart + Julia Johnson + Gallia

The End of Torpor is a poignant flute and cello duet composed by disabled musician, The Emerald Ruby. Torpor is defined as the physiological changes an animal undergoes as they enter a state of hibernation. Although I am human, every year as the sun sets earlier and the temperature cools, I experience torpor. This mental and physical shift marks my yearly unavoidable transition into a state of Seasonal Affective Disorder. As Winter turns to Spring, I exit this state of depression, emerging from a type of hibernation. This piece was composed in the July/August period of 2021, Winter into Spring, musically capturing the end of torpor.

This show will also feature performances from The Emerald Ruby's solo set, Naomi Dart's Solo set, Julia Johnson and Gallia

Sister Ursuline is a Sydney-based singer-songwriter and cellist. Dubbed “sonic historian”, she draws on historical sources and folk stories to create otherworldly narrative songs: asylum-bound nuns, shape-shifting witches and iron-willed aristocrats inhabit “echoing, off-kilter tale[s]… of madness, illness, obsession and suffering…”. She has headlined as a solo performer on Australia’s East Coast - in live performance, she uses effects and looping on the fly to create a multi-cello ensemble and vocal harmonies.
Gailla creates homemade electro folk pop songs about climate, construction and corruption. Each idea is powered by joy and hope. Each story is to help imagine the future ahead of us - one with twisting green vines in the city and calm in the forests

Naomi Dart: Naomi Dart is a versatile cellist playing any style from folk to classical and musical theatre. Her Classical training, combined with experimental music philosophies merge together in her live performances, bringing every audience on a wild, improvised journey.

The Emerald Ruby: The Emerald Ruby weaves a delicate musical tapestry from an on-stage forest of flutes and ukuleles. Voice like a siren, intricate melodies sprout from her classical training, gently manicured by her love of Folk music and Jazz.

A rich musical history accompanies The Emerald Ruby through every performance. Her first musical home was the Orchestra, where Shostakovich and Stravinsky informed her understanding of structure and texture. In her teens, she fell for alt metal band System of Down, which combined with her study at University of Newcastle, saw her make the transition from pure classical musician to multi-genre powerhouse. She has toured and recorded extensively with The Button collective and experimental folk/jazz band Vanishing Shapes. She regularly performs with jazz-rock band Othrship, and Psyc rock band Lachlan X Morris.
