World Premiere

Ensemble Offspring with Oren Ambarchi and Martin Ng (Australia)

What happens when you tackle the vast textures of Ligeti’s masterwork Atmospheres with strings, percussion, electric guitar and turntables?

Join Sydney’s champions of contemporary classical music Ensemble Offspring and underground electronic duo Oren Ambarchi and Martin Ng to find out. Using the music of György Ligeti as inspiration, the artists fuse the acoustic world with the electronic in a series  of strikingly original works.

These aural tapestries are interspersed with bold reinventions of the Ligeti canon, from a double-marimba version of the classic Continuum to an ensemble rewrite of one of his Ètudes and finally the monolithic Atmospheres.

“Razor-sharp precision… and thrilling virtuosity” The Australian (ON ENSEMBLE OFFSPRING)
