As part of the 2021 ADELAIDE GUITAR FESTIVAL

GUITARCHESTRA is an inter-generational electric guitar ensemble that will engage amateur and semi-professional guitarists of all ages and abilities in the creation of an immersive multi-phonic, sound work. Conceived and led by SA based composer Matthew Timmis, GUITARCHESTRA will generate an unprecedented opportunity for a range of individuals to participate in the creation and performance of new experimental music.

A unique celebration of popular culture’s obsession with electric guitar, this project is the latest in a series of large-scale, community-based works by composer Matthew Timmis. Matthew’s other projects have included a re-scoring of the classic silent film Nosferatu and Car-cophony, a performance piece for 12 cars and their stereos which appeared at the 2013 Sydney Festival.

Here are some examples of the parts each player will need to practice before the day.
