Event details

Two of Melbourne’s most vibrant chamber music ensembles, Rubiks Collective and Ossicle Duo, unite to explore the logic behind human action.

Donnacha Dennehy’s Mild, Medium-Lasting, Artificial Happiness veers between whimsical and sarcastic unisons, Panayiotis Kokoras’s Study on Phonetics juxtaposes metallic jolts and whispered bowings, and two percussionists examine a tinkling pallet of delicate glass objects in Annie Hsieh’s Quietude.

The concert culminates in the world premiere of a new work for the virtuosic forces of these combined ensembles by rising Australian composer Jakob Bragg, recipient of the 2020 University of Melbourne Commission Award.
