Target

Myth and fashion

Target reinterprets the ancient Greek myth of Ganymede, the most beautiful of mortals whom Zeus abducted in the form of an eagle to serve as his cup-bearer. Young composer Luke Paulding drags this myth into a contemporary context including fashion photo-shoots and underwear model advertisements.

‘A sincere welcome to [Quiver], this talent-rich new body, particularly for its brave promotion of intriguing and taxing creations.’

THE AGE

 

“Paulding’s sound world consists of deconstructing instrumental sounds to produce new and fascinating timbres.”
