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. Perth sensation Alice Humphries shines the light on Blair Harris and his cello inspired by J. S. Bach and Andrew Ford hooks you in with his funky new vibraphone solo. LA’s Karen Tanaka will beguile 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!
