Ensemble Offspring | Xanadu Sky – Melbourne

17 June 2024 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

$35 – $50
3.+3 2

With three solos and an epic 30-minute trio, Xanadu Sky is a journey through shifting patterns that slowly evolve like a hypnotic dusk horizon. Hear every subtle sonority of the double bass, percussion and piano as they each take their turn in the spotlight as soloists and join forces as a meticulous musical machine.

Alex Raineri (piano), Benjamin Ward (double bass) and Claire Edwardes (percussion) shine in solo works by Caroline Shaw, Brenda Gifford and Andrian Pertout. Finally, Sarah Hennies’ crowning trio Spectral Malsconcities balances on a knife’s edge between rhythmic virtuosity and carefully crafted chaos.
