Composer Julian Day joins with the Barossa community to create a massed work that speaks to the region's people, history, and sense of place. Held under the shadow of the mighty Hill & Son Organ at the Barossa Regional Gallery, Super Critical Mass will examine how the cultural forces of the Barossa community come together and intersect.


Julian Day is an Australian and New York based composer who directs 'Super Critical Mass': an ongoing participatory sound project in which temporary communities form within 'the commons'. Members of the local community come together to create monochromatic sound fields using identical sound sources (bowls, coins, bells, voice) in public locations such as parks, streets, malls and libraries, following memorized instructions developed within in-situ workshops.
