Ensemble Offspring

Sonic Sites Bundanon

June 17, 2021 @ 5:00pm 7:30pm

Sonic Sites is an acoustic exploration of the Bundanon landscape and the creation of an immersive & participatory sonic performance. Ensemble Offspring collaborate with a bunch of local musicians as well as long time composer collaborators and together they will occupy natural and built spaces at Bundanon to explore the acoustic and resonant potential of each site. Video Artist Sam James will capture video footage of the musicians’ movements as light-drawings for projections. Vocal and music workshops with local Indigenous students will be held on site and audience members will be invited to participate in the aural activation and sonic mapping of Bundanon on the day of the concert. Thanks to Red Room Poetry for permission to use the Poetry in First Languages (PIFL) poems for the works for choir.

“You gave these children an opportunity to experience and participate in something that they will remember for an eternity… They have gained an appreciation for eclectic and textural music that they may not usually hear, which to me is incredibly important. To expose them to difference and an unfamiliar level of conception and composition was a wonderful learning journey for all of us.” – Justin Anderson, Nowra East PS teacher
