Sydney, immerse yourself in Ensemble Offspring’s micro festival of new sounds from around the world – an expedition of invention from Berlin to Sydney and New York to Perth. Make a racket, interface with our artists and experience the world of living music; sinuous, sculptural and sizzling sounds.

The weekend features three different concerts, mixing world premieres with new music classics, a discussion with leading artists working in Australia and overseas, as well as an industry speed dating session where you can meet one-on-one with leaders in the field. Join us between events for a casual drink in Alexandria’s hidden warehouse gem, Nest Creative Space.
