Common Ground sees two of Australia’s most adventurous music groups get together over the Cuban missile crisis and throw a bunch of genres into the blender. Topology and Speak Percussion show off their distinctive sets of originals before coming together to create lush and powerful orchestrations. Come and hear the sound of what composers do now – throwing together ideas from far-flung origins to create an exhilarating mix of heart and mind.
Topology are famous for the breadth and depth of their collaborations. The quintet has created stunning new work with Geoffrey Rush, Neil Armfield, the Brodsky Quartet, the Southern Cross Soloists, Terry Riley, TaikOz, the Queensland Ballet, Kate Miller-Heidke, Katie Noonan, the Kransky Sisters, Gerry Connolly, and William Barton, to name a few.
Speak Percussion is a flexible line-up of Australia’s finest creative percussionists that has a 13-year history of commissioning, performing and creating innovative new work.
