Noise Husbandry

August 6, 2016 | 7:00pm

Noise Husbandry brings James Humberstone’s live score to the Maritime Museum for one night only! These stunning new works composed for the new ‘Action Stations’ exhibit can be heard throughout the museum and were largely recorded in the ANMM submarine by Ensemble Offspring and later James created tracks combining the live elements with samples and electronics.

‘Action Stations’ launched in November 2015 and this performance will be the first time the general public can experience Humberstone’s original music live performed by Sydney’s own Ensemble Offspring.

The live performance will be followed by a drinks and nibbles as well as a Q&A with the creative team – James Humberstone, Claire Edwardes and the team from the Australian National Maritime Museum.
