Spectral Tech - EO

  • Sydney Conservatorium of Music Music Workshop, 1 Conservatorium Road Sydney, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

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 unique, 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, Thirteen Colours of the Setting Sun, by French spectralist, Tristan Murail. Roland Peelman conducts and Sean Bacon provides live images for this immersive sound light sensation at the Sydney Conservatorium.



Tristan Coelho – New work (World Premiere) for vibraphone 5’
Holly Harrison – Sextet (World Premiere) for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, percussion, piano 10’
Alex Pozniak – New work (World Premiere) for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, percussion, piano + conductor 20’
Tristan Murail – Thirteen Colours of the Setting Sun for flute, clarinet, piano, violin, cello + conductor 13’
