Event Details

Ossicle Duo is an exciting new ensemble featuring contemporary music specialists Benjamin Anderson (trombone) and Hamish Upton (percussion).

The pair met while studying in Singapore in 2010, and quickly bonded over music, going on to play together in numerous ensembles and projects before forming Ossicle Duo in 2017. The Duo explores the great repertoire that exists for this combination, ranging from post minimalism to the avant-garde, while also being committed to commissioning new works and collaborating with like-minded musicians.

Hints of jazz, progressive rock and metal express the groove in contemporary art music. Harmony vies with discord, brutality with beauty, and normality with a chorus of ACME siren whistles. Saxophonist Ali Fyffe and pianist Alex Waite transform Ossicle Duo into a vibrant musical collective capable of unique and dazzling sound.
