Part 1: Sydney Conservatorium Composers' Ensemble

If haven't heard a clarinet through a drum head, then you need to rediscover sound with this exploratory improvisation from the Con's freshest composers' collective.

Part 2: Benjamin Carey

networks_articulated - an audio-visual performance for modular synthesisers and computer by saxophonist, composer and technologist Benjamin Carey. In this semi-improvised work, human and machine, digital and analog, and sight and sound are combined to arrange, navigate and articulate a shared audio-visual feedback network.

Part 3: Spiral

Spiral is a young contemporary music group playing amplified instruments with a minimalist focus. Their collaborator, multimedia artist Harry Klein, has created a visual counterpoint to their dizzying program featuring new works by Josephine Macken and Joshua Winestock.

Performers: William Hansen, Rory Knott, Johannes Macdonald, Josephine Macken, Oscar Smith, Sarah Thompson & Joshua Winestock. Video projections: Harry Klein
