Nat Bartsch – Lullabies

Nat Bartsch is a Melbourne-based pianist and composer who creates ethereal, gentle music crossing the classical and improvised music spectrums.

When Nat became a mother she launched her ‘Lullaby Project’, inspired by Max Richter’s Sleep album and the children’s genre-crossing of the Teeny Tiny Stevies. Influenced by music therapy research and her son’s stages of development, Nat composed a series of pieces designed to encourage babies to sleep. Equally importantly, the music is intended to be soothing for adults—for if the whole family is calm; the baby is more likely to be calm.

Time: 10am & 12pm sessions (1 hour duration)
Location: Melbourne Museum, 11 Nicholson Street, Carlton
