Ensemble Offspring kicks off the year by taking its unique handmade instruments on the road in 'Between the Keys'. Between The Keys extends our successful Partch’s Bastards project. We follow the lead of the iconic Harry Partch whose music was so radical he needed to build his own orchestra of unique instruments to play it. Ensemble Offspring has commissioned visually striking and sonically beautiful instruments on which to perform vivid new colours and scales. Insightful education workshops accompany the concert program.
Performers: Damien Ricketson (violin), Anna McMichael (undachin tarhu), Jason Noble (clarini/harmonium), Diana Springford (clarini), Claire Edwardes (centaur vibraphone), Bree van Reyk (meru bars/percussion)
Featured non-Australian music: Phillip Glass – Music in Similar Motion; Arvo Pärt – Fratres
