Ensemble Offspring

Shivers on Speed

October 28, 2021 @ 7:00pm

Ensemble Offspring are Australia’s musical lightning rod, drawing the most electric and spectacular talent from around the world and setting it loose in our very own harbourside backyard. Shivers on Speed is the latest showcase of what is hot right now: brace yourself for three premieres by local and international sensations

The internet gets its groove back in our 2019 Noisy Women commission Click Farm by Nicole Murphy, while Jack Symonds clutches at memories in a new sextet Memory featuring our flautist Lamorna Nightingale. Andrew Ford hooks you in with his funky new vibraphone solo while LA’s Karen Tanaka beguiles you with her originality in some fiendish Techno Etudes for piano solo; and Cologne based Brigitta Muntendorf’s shivers on speed drags you headfirst on a crazy, high speed trip through a sonic jungle. Don’t miss this global melting pot of new sounds, served up as only Ensemble Offspring can!

4 stars ★★★★ “Artistic director Claire Edwardes has assembled six works which deliver on the promise of a hot mess of premieres from around the world.” – Harriet Cunningham, Limelight
