Ensemble Offspring

Flexible Eclectic

May 10, 2006 @ 8:00 pm

Flexible Eclectic is the first of Ensemble Offspring’s 2006 projects. In this concert the group will perform three works in the tradition of “open instrumentation”: works deliberately designed to be interpreted by radically different groups of instruments. Four6 by the controversial John Cage is a provocative work for “any means of producing sound”. Philip Glass’s Music in Fifths is early hard-core Minimalism, hypnotic and relentless – the trance music of the 60s. And Sydney composer Damien Ricketson presents an exotic tablature-score that may be rendered into sound via any two wind and two string instruments in Trace Elements.
