    About your hosts Maxim Boon and Megan Steller:
    Maxim Boon is a British composer, writer and critic who has been based in Australia since 2014. When he's not ensconced in a concert hall or writing about Melbourne's music scene, he can mostly be found taking selfies with his dog.

    The Tune Up: Those who think classical music is a static art form vs Ben Opie

    The Tune Up: Those who think classical music is a static art form vs Ben Opie

    Welcome to episode one of The Tune Up podcast with hosts Maxim Boon and Megan Steller!

    In this episode, Maxim and Megan chat with oboist, collaborator, artistic director and one half of Inventi Ensemble, Ben Opie. Plus, an audio experiment that explores the art and etiquette of opening a cough lolly wrapper in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall featuring usher and percussionist of Ossicle Duo, Hamish Upton.

    About Ben Opie:
    Two types of people walk the alleys of Melbourne’s wildly eclectic arts scene: those who argue classical music is a static art form, and those who know the work of Ben Opie.

    Tackling mind-blowing innovation with the class and sensitivity of a veteran, Ben is a young oboist of matchless capacity performing at the cutting edge of classical music’s fresh-faced evolution. With a big emphasis on innovation and meaningful collaborations, Ben’s approach has the power to keep classical music connected and relevant to its audience. He does this not only in his performing career but also in his new role as Artistic Director of the Peninsula Summer Music Festival.

    Soundescapes Podcast: Music is More than what you hear

    Whether we're listening through our headphones or in the local coffee shop, music is an irrepressible part of our daily lives – and it is so much more than just the sounds that enter our ears.

    In the latest Music on the Mind talk, recorded live from Melbourne Recital Centre, esteemed speakers share their fascinating perspectives:

    Dr Amanda Krause explores how music cannot be isolated from our everyday experiences.

    Solange Glasser explains how synaesthesia can lead people to see or taste music.

    Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre, engaged through The University of Melbourne-Melbourne Recital Centre Partnership.

    More about the speakers:

    Dr Amanda Krause is a post-doctoral research fellow at The University of Melbourne. She is interested in the social and applied psychology of music, and her research examines everyday music interactions, with an emphasis on considering listening technologies and the intersection of everyday music and well-being.

    Solange Glasser is a faculty member of the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, and is the convenor of a new online breadth subject entitled Creativity, Genius, Expertise and Talent. Her research interests include multisensory perception and exceptional abilities, with an emphasis on the impact of neurological conditions such as synaesthesia and absolute pitch on musical development.
