Golden Fur is a new Melbourne-based music project comprising James Rushford (piano, viola), Judith Hamann (cello, prepared cello), and Sam Dunscombe (clarinets, laptop), who are re-imagining chamber music in the realms of experimental music and the avant-garde. Seeking to create a further dialogue with the language of exploratory music as well as that of improvisation, theatre and visual art, Golden Fur will be presenting challenging new works written specifically for the ensemble by Australian composer Kate Neal and visual artist, composer Marco Fusinato, alongside works by Australians Liza Lim and Robert Rooney. The concert will also feature a world premiere by Dutch experimental icon Jaap Blonk. Golden Fur engages with contemporary classical music in youthfully iconoclastic style, adding volume, volatility and theatricality by means of built instruments, electronics, amplification and computers. Thanks to Golden Fur, the seemingly discrete worlds of classical, experimental, improvisation and indie/DIY music are about to collide.
