The title track is lifted from The Letter String Quartet’s first album – All The Stories, due for release in early 2020. The collection of songs is a moving song cycle composed by TLSQ’s Biddy Connor with lyrics by poet Maria Zajkowski. The album was created in response to the historic Abbotsford Convent site in Melbourne, with each song written from a different point of view and experience.

All that you hear is all that is heard, a site specific work composed and presented by The Letter String Quartet and curated by emerging curator Rachael Paintin.
Set within the Nicholas Building, All that you hear is all that is heard is an experiment in sound and storytelling. Since the 1920s, the Nicholas building has been a vibrant hub for creative practitioners, makers and designers. Playing with audio and musical illusions and allusions The Letter String Quartet will present interwoven stories and recordings collected from tenants of the building, past and present, in an intimate storytelling circle.
Working towards a performative work that seeks to bring people together in an act of listening, All that you hear is all that is heard aims to reinforce the importance of storytelling, connecting and sharing while asserting the need to preserve space for inner city studios.
