Come along to hear the premiere of my latest sextet for Ensemble Offspring, Bend/Boogie/Break, as well as new works by Tristan Coelho and Alex Pozniak. That’s three world premieres of Australian works in one night – a hat trick! Bend/Boogie/Break also features distorted keyboard and a guitar pedal – it’s going to be fun. . . .
September 29, 7pm, Music Workshop, Sydney Conservatorium

Shards of sound and jagged rhythms envelop your ears and tickle your feet as Ensemble Offspring brings to life the wild and uncompromising squiggles of local composers Alex Pozniak, Tristan Coelho and Holly Harrison.
With sound worlds so distinctive, we needed to coin a new name for their music. We’re calling it “Spectral Tech”. The virtuosic musicians of Ensemble Offspring get down and dirty with these three premieres alongside an ensemble favourite.
Harrison Bend/Boogie/Break (world premiere)
Coehlo A Line if a Dot That Went for a Walk - solo vibraphone - (world premiere)
Pozniak En Masse (world premiere)
