Ensemble Offspring

New Radicals

March 30, 2012 | 8:00pm

Unearthing the sonic possibilities of both the acoustic and the electronic, here are two world and four Australian premieres by six composers from around the globe. This is modern folk music gone insane; a posse of megaphones, bell laden gloves and a mass of melodians. New Radicals is new music to be seen, heard and most importantly, felt.
