Josh Cohen: Radiohead for Solo Piano
'Radiohead for Solo Piano' will come to life in concert on Saturday 12 October in the Convent's North Magdalen Laundry. A very rare opportunity to experience Josh Cohen performing these works in an intimate, live and multi-visual performance featuring Berlin-based visual artist Josh Batty of MindBuffer as well as Mike Gurrieri from PBS 106.7FM Melbourne's 'Mystic Brew' spinning some tunes between sets.
This unique experience will celebrate the launch of Josh Cohen’s band-approved songbook 'Radiohead for Solo Piano', which has recently been published by Faber Music in London. The songbook also includes artwork on the front cover and throughout the book by Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood.
Limited edition signed and numbered copies of 'Radiohead for Solo Piano' can be purchased from http://joshcohenmusic.com and will also be available to purchase on the night.
Respecting and Acknowledging the Convent’s Past
This performance will take place in the North Magdalen Laundry.
The Convent was inscribed on the National Heritage List in August 2017, with the Magdalen Laundry and asylum buildings recognised as an important physical record for those Australians and their families known as the Forgotten Australians. We recognise and honour the thousands of girls and women placed in care at the Convent, including those who laboured in the Laundry. The harm of institutionalisation and the trauma experienced by many residents is acknowledged as part of the Convent’s heritage. The Magdalen Laundry provides a space for artists, audiences and communities to experience new practices, narratives and histories, while respecting the heritage and social history of these spaces.
