PRESENTED BY CITY RECITAL HALL, ENSEMBLE OFFSPRING AND CREATIVE MUSIC FUND
They say there are seven stories that encompass all others, but what would they sound like as music?
Hear the oldest of tales with new ears as seven genre-defying composers from across the Australian artistic landscape turn their creative minds towards the legends and lore that have accompanied human history.
Ensemble Offspring have gathered together some of the country’s most original and inquiring artists to delve into the trove of common narratives that span cultures and centuries. Drawing from the ranks of the country’s finest rock and pop outfits – The Go-Betweens’ Amanda Brown, Holly Throsby’s drummer Bree Van Reyk, The Clouds’ Jodi Phillis – to screen composers such as Kyls Burtland and Caitlin Yeo to multi-disciplinary whirlwind Sally Whitwell, this collision of thinkers and dreamers will weave a many-hued interpretation of our archetypal stories with accompanying visuals designed by Sarah-Jane Woulahan and a conceptual framework created by writer Hilary Bell.
