Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Project Ludwig

Project Ludwig was an interactive event where the audience collectively programmed their own classical music performance, selecting from an array of movements from Beethoven’s Opus 18 works to be performed by the Australian String Quartet. Each performance culminated in a unique, one-night-only Beethoven quartet experience.

Prior to the performance, audience members had 30 minutes in the foyer to vote for which four movements would be played that evening. Cards of ‘sheet music’ – each describing a movement option and its mood, and each fitted with hidden Near Field Communication (NFC) tags – were laid out for audience members to explore their options.
