Sydney, immerse yourself in Ensemble Offspring’s micro festival of new sounds from around the world – an expedition of invention from Berlin to Sydney and New York to Perth. Make a racket, interface with our artists and experience the world of living music; sinuous, sculptural and sizzling sounds.

The weekend features three different concerts, mixing world premieres with new music classics, a discussion with leading artists working in Australia and overseas, as well as an industry speed dating session where you can meet one-on-one with leaders in the field. Join us between events for a casual drink in Alexandria’s hidden warehouse gem, Nest Creative Space.



Mentors: Marcus Whale (multi-genre artist), Caitlin Yeo (film composer), Peter Knight (artistic director, composer, trumpet), Peggy Polias (Making Waves Podcast/composer), John Davis (CEO Australian Music Centre) and Cameron Lam (Art Music Specialist APRA AMCOS, composer).

Your chance to have one-on-one sessions with new music leaders and emerging voices to pick their brains for the inside tips to make your next project, or the next stage of your career, a success. Sessions are FREE, but festival pass holders will get first pick! Book your pass online, and we’ll send you a special sign-up link to pick your “date” and time. There are just four 15-minute dates available with each leader.
