Inspired by composer Johann Sebastian Bach’s repetitious compositions, Escher’s art of infinite tessellations mirrors Bach’s music.

Referencing this parallel, creative collaboration anon. brings together Australian composers and performing artists to reimagine the works of Bach with live performances, new compositions across baroque, classical and jazz styles and a specially commissioned soundscape as part of NGV Friday Nights.

Live performances at 6.30pm, 7.30pm & 8.30pm.

‘when I am listening to Bach I frequently get inspired and feel an overwhelming instinct for his insistent rhythm, a cadence seeking something of the infinite.’ – M. C. Escher
