Event Details

The David Chesworth Ensemble has made its own unique path with its evocative music utilising a broad and colourful instrumental palette. Chesworth’s compositions and installations have been performed and exhibited in major festivals including Ars Electronica (Austria), Festival D’Automne de Paris, Edinburgh Festival, BAM Next Wave (New York), Melbourne and Adelaide Festivals.

David Chesworth’s latest, full-length work Vanishing Tekopia (2009) creates driving themes and rhythms in seductive settings of Ursonate-like word songs. Vanishing Tekopia is scored for voice and a large ensemble of instruments and electronics (including the taishogoto, a Japanese harp). The unique sonorous textures of the ensemble, richer still with the added instrumental colours, create driving themes and polyrhythms in seductive settings of Ursonate-like word songs.

Performers: David Chesworth – electronics, Andrea Keeble – violin, Michelle John – cello, Jeremy Alsop – bass, John McAll – piano, Simon Myers – trombone, Peter Neville – percussion, Eugene Ughetti – percussion, Robert Goodge – guitars, Joanne Kuluveovski - vocals, and Melissa Webb - vocals, taisho koto, khaen.
