Syzygy Ensemble is one of the finest new music ensembles in Australia, lauded for its virtuoso precision, innovative programming and the ability to connect viscerally with audiences.
Find out how composers and musicians are responding to the global climate emergency as Syzygy Ensemble performs a stirring collection of cutting-edge works. Joined by violinist Anna McMichael and electronic artist Miriama Young, the Ensemble performs music that encourages action in the here and now, provides a chance to mourn what is lost and inspires hope for the future. A solo bass flute sings a haunting lament in Dai Fujikura’s Glacier. Music by Miriama Young weaves an interactive sonic landscape, and, in true Syzygy form, works by the exquisite Lisa Illean and visionary multidisciplinary mixed media French artist Pierre Jodlowski receive their Australian premieres.
