Simon Barker & Chloe Kim + Elysian Fields : Vivid New Music at the Con
Improvising musicians Chloe Kim and Simon Barker, kick off this year's 'Vivid New Music at the Con' in the forecourt. The dynamic drumming duo will perform a selection of Korean and Asia-Pacific inspired rhythms and music.

Led by viola da gambist Jenny Eriksson and saxophonist Matt Keegan, and accompanied by pianist Matt McMahon, Elysian Fields will perform the sweeping “Elysium” by Matt Keegan, an 18-minute epic which is the first Australian work for voice and electric gamba.
