Hark the Machine | Ensemble Offspring
11 February @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEDT$45
Crunch. Boom. Grind. Ensemble Offspring transforms the Utzon Room with music of today and the sounds of tomorrow.
Creak. Groan. Fizz. Like an old machine gradually coming to life, we hear the rhythmic drive of American composers David Lang and Annie Gosfield.
Pulse, pop, shake. Sounds rooted in jazz emerge from music by pianist and composer, Andrea Keller (2017 Merlyn Myer Music Commission), and Sydney composer Fiona Hill (Noisy Women Commission) transports us to a meditative other-world in a work for sextet so new the ink will still be wet.
