Event Details

On August 19th, New York City outfit yMusic take a night off from their busy touring schedule with Ben Folds to present the latest music from the USA alongside Sydney's creative collective of upcoming performers and composers: the music box project. This unique exchange of new music marks the launch of a brand new series presented by 'BackStage: a living space for living music' at Darlinghurst’s creative space 99.

the music box project:
an experimental vehicle for upcoming Sydney composers and performers, seeking to present unique, creative and collaborative music experiences. This creative cohort have sonically activated car parks and created an ambitious collaborative work in which 40 composers from around the world each contributed a cell of music. In the music box project's short set, six composers have each created a miniature work based on the same simple concept leading them to different paths of sonic exploration.

a group of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds, who have striven to bring a classical chamber music aesthetic to venues outside the traditional concert hall. Known for their partnership with Ben Folds and championing the music of the likes of Nico Muhly and Sufjan Stevens, yMusic will present a program including the world premiere of a new work by Brooklyn based composer Missy Mazzoli - recently deemed “one of the more consistently inventive, surprising composers now working in New York" (New York Times).

Featured non-Australian music: yMusic: Missy Mazzoli (world premiere), Nico Muhly, Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, Marcos Balter, Judd Greenstein
