Exit Ceremonies celebrates the darkness with lush, pulsating new works for pipe organ and mixed ensemble. Two of Australia’s most vibrant musical forces, the Australian Art Orchestra and Ensemble Offspring, unite with celebrated young composer-pianists Austin Buckett and Simon James Phillips, who have each created immersive works exploiting the extraordinary array of sonic effects that can only be achieved with large pipe organs. The unexpected addition of reel-to-reel tape machines, turntables, electronics, percussion, voice, trumpet and strings will alter your sense of time and space as they are all processed live in combination with the Sydney Conservatorium’s majestic pipe organ, creating an unfamiliar and entrancing world of sound.
Featured non-Australian music: Alvin Lucier
