Sticky Notes

June 9, 2021 @ 8:00 am June 13, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Sticky Notes is a musical activation of the Customs House precinct by Sydney’s musical mavericks, Ensemble Offspring. With original vibrant scores by Ciaran Frame in the form of large ‘sticky notes’ on the pavement, these unique non-slip decals act as both colourful artworks and musical notation.

Featuring a range of unique instruments on mass, including euphonium, waterphone, piccolo and bass clarinet, the roaming group of virtuoso musicians will present half hour performances for flexible moving audiences from the 9th to 13th June.

Bring along your friends and family to this free event and if you’re so inclined you can even join in the music making! Help bring the city back to life with some live sonic goodness this June.

Supported by City of Sydney.
