French composer Phillipe Manoury wrote this extraordinary five-movement epic at IRCAM almost thirty years ago in collaboration with the software pioneer Miller Puckette. Aside from the demanding piano writing, performed in this Australasian premiere by remarkable Melbourne soloist Peter Dumsday, Pluton is the first major piece of music to use MAX/MSP software for live audio signal processing and diffusion. BIFEM 2013 alumnus Samuel Dunscombe returns to Bendigo to perform the live electronics in this milestone work.
