Floof!

An Ensemble Offspring and Halcyon collaboration

Floof!

Floof!…the first comprehensible word spoken by a spluttering poetry machine and the title of Esa Pekka Salonen’s award winning chamber piece for the crazy antics of amplified coloratura soprano and ensemble. In a special collaborative performance, Ensemble Offspring and Halcyon join forces to present this and other recent works in a program for voice and ensemble where luscious new sounds breathe life into ancient themes.
