An interactive musical activation

Sticky Notes

March 15 @ 3:30 pm March 18 @ 7:45 pm

Sticky Notes is a musical activation of the Customs House precinct by Sydney’s musical mavericks, Ensemble Offspring. With original vibrant scores by Ciaran Frame in the form of large ‘sticky notes’ on the pavement, these unique non-slip decals act as both colourful artworks and musical notation.

Featuring a range of unique instruments on mass, including euphonium, waterphone, piccolo and bass clarinet, the roaming group of virtuoso musicians will present multiple 30-minute performances for flexible moving audiences.

Bring along your friends and family to this free event and help bring our city back to life with some live sonic goodness this summer!

Sticky Notes is proudly supported by City of Sydney.

Ensemble Offspring is committed to ensuring our events are accessible to everyone. Please email admin@ensembleoffspring.com at the time of booking to inform us of any special access needs.
