Event Details

Sydney’s premiere new music group, Ensemble Offspring, bring you an alluring concert combining virtuosic music integrated with live video projections.

The program features a video of gently falling leaves to accompany a new arrangement of Steve Reich’s Vermont Counterpoint. Beautiful emulsified original film set against a soaring violin in Michael Gordon and Bill Morrison’s Light is Calling and a newly commissioned work by Brisbane composer Chris Perren that integrates a trio of performers and on on-screen divers in perfect sync, while on-screen floating hair and a track combining harmonium, tiny bells and industrial noise accompany a lone clarinet in Nico Muhly and Una Lorenson’s work. Also on the program is a collection of works extracted from Fractured Again, an audio-visual exploration of glass through music from Co-artistic Director, Damien Ricketson and video artist Andrew Wholley. Experience the immersive world of music and image—from the depths of the ocean to sound worlds of molten glass.
