Event Details

This event is free for all participants, but registrations are recommended (please follow the link below to the festival website).

The event forms part of the Creative Explosion in the West festival. The idea is to feature Asia-Pacific traditions of Korean samul nori drumming, Filipino kulintang percussion, Japanese shakuhachi ‘moment' aesthetic and Eastern Asian string techniques (Korea, Japan, China) interacting with contemporary music. Ensemble Offspring and UWS staff feature in intercultural, improvising and electronic traditions related to Western Sydney. This will mean cutting edge intercultural composition, live-internet interaction between Ensemble Offspring and Texas, and a short spatial electro-acoustic work.

Performers: Bernadette Balkus, piano, Claire Edwardes, percussion, James Cuddeford, violin, Jason Noble, clarinet, UWS Staff.
