Event Details

What happens when you tackle the vast textures of György Ligeti’s masterwork Atmospheres with a couple of strings, percussion, electric guitar and turntables? In this unique collaboration, Sydney’s virtuoso champions of innovative classical music, Ensemble Offspring, are joined by internationally famed underground electronica duo Oren Ambarchi and Martin Ng. Using the music of Hungarian composer György Ligeti (1923-2006) as inspiration, the artists fuse the acoustic and electric worlds in a series of striking aural tapestries interspersed with reinventions of Ligeti’s second Piano Etude, his solo harpsichord tour-de-force, Continuum, and ending with After Atmospheres – a work that echoes the famous orchestral score featured in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Performers: Veronique Serret & Anna McMichael (violin), Claire Edwardes & Bree van Reyk (percussion), Martin Ng (turntables), Oren Ambarchi (guitar/electronics)

Featured non-Australian music: György Ligeti – Continuum (marimba duo version), Piano Etude #2 Cordes Vides (arr. van Reyk), After Atmospheres
