Event Details

Sounds of Now is a new project by Elmac Creative. Sounds of Now is a vehicle to present quality artists and their original music in a focused concert setting. No bar, no food, no coffee machines, (no election results) just great sound, great lighting and a great focus for artist and audience alike.

Series 1 is a concert of highly original art music featuring two unique ensembles: Paul Cutlan String Project will perform Cutlan’s recent work The Eleventh Hour, alongside unique arrangements of Coltrane, Dolphy and Jann Rutherford.

“Hybrids can be mongrels, but Cutlan’s works are refreshingly original and exude vitality... composing and improvising are of equal merit – some achievement for such an ambitious, genre defying project.” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Polymorphic Orkestra will explore the idea of "Shadowland" with special guest video artist Bartek Reszelski. 

Performers: Paul Cutlan String Project Paul Cutlan - Composer | Bass Clarinet | Soprano Sax Liisa Pallandi - Violin Lachlan O'Donnell - Violin James Eccles - Viola Oliver Miller - Cello Elsen Price - Double Bass Polymorphic Orkestra Lee McIver - Trumpet | Laptop | FX Ed Goyer - Vibraphone | Malletkat | Samples | Percussion Ed Rodrigues - Drums | Samples | Percussion


Featured non-Australian music: John Coltrane - After the Rain; Eric Dolphy - Hat and Beard
