Details

The Song Company joins forces with the rising bass guitar duo from Melbourne metal band The Omnific for a resonant mix of plainchant, dynamic basslines, and 12th-century organum.

A collaboration across genres with a uniting interest in the deep resonances of vocal cords, struck strings, and powerful harmonies. A cluster of rising stars from Melbourne, The Omnific has already made a name for their unique rhythmic interplay and wordless metallic fantasias.

The Omnific’s two five-string bass guitarists’ classic duo Kismet and other new works are interleaved with multi-voice chanting and improvisation from the male voices of The Song Company in music from Magister Pérotin’s masterpiece Viderunt omnes and its late 12th-century inspirations, echoed by a high soprano in his most haunting of songs, Beata viscera.
