NCCA presents a series of contemporary music recitals in our gallery in Parap. Curated by visual artist and musician, Mats Unden, this is a concert series for listening. Listening to Darwin musicians who are experimenting with sound, tone, form and ways of making music. Deep and intimate listening, free from distractions, surrounded by the art on show at NCCA.

The concerts are on Sunday afternoons at 4pm (doors open 3.30), every fortnight from October through to December.
