Mendelssohn / Golijov / Willcock // Tim Heaney

Series Five : v_2

Friday 26 October / 8pm // Collingwood Underground Car Park

Affinity Collective

Set One

Play On alumni the Affinity Collective are celebrated for taking listeners deep into the classical chamber music experience through their revelatory and absorbing musical interpretations. For this performance, the group present a beguiling program of music from the nineteenth century to the noughties. Beginning with Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting and beautiful Tenebrae (‘Darkness’) a work with a pulsating, vibrating, aerial texture, the program concludes with Australian composer Christopher Willcock’s vibrant Feux (‘Fires’).


At the centre of the program sits a classic of the string quartet repertoire, Felix Mendelssohn’s shimmering, joyful, String Quartet No. 2, completed in 1827 when the composer was just 18 years old. Written shortly after the death of Beethoven the work is often understood as a response to the great master’s late string quartets, which had left a strong impression on the young Mendelssohn spiritually, intellectually and technically.

Set Two: Tim Heaney

With an unwavering commitment to digging deep and unearthing the deeper side of house music, Tim Heaney’s impeccable sets navigate diverse genres and generations. Often pivoting towards the counter-culture, Tim’s agnostic approach to track-selection creates dance-floor elation.


DJing for more than a decade, Tim has taken his inimitable sound to warehouse parties, intimate club gigs, and festival stages around Australia, Japan and Europe. Recent Australian highlights include Strawberry Fields, Pitch Music and Arts and Inner Varnika Festival.


Tim heads up the respected Melbourne music and arts collective, citipower, which has played host to a stellar line-up of international acts including Mike Huckaby, Giegling, Smallville, Damiano von Erckert, Lawrence and Steven Tang. Going beyond the usual club-fare, the collective also profiles local underground photographers providing a fresh perspective on the magic of the Melbourne music scene.
