Dynamic contemporary art music group Rubiks Collective debuted in 2015 and has quickly won praise for its ‘incredibly personal, strangely spiritual and ultimately deeply touching’ performances (Limelight magazine).
Rubiks works with the artistic pioneers of our time, including Marcus Fjellström, Xuan, Bec Plexus, Kinds of Kings, Short Black Opera and Invenio Singers. In 2017 Rubiks launched the Pythia Prize for female and gender nonconforming composers.
Rubiks Collective performs a feast of works from some of the world’s most impressive innovators in contemporary music. Suzanne Farrin’s The Stimulus of Loss explores the unique and haunting sounds of the ondes Martenot (early electronic instrument) combined with ‘glissando headjoint’ (a modified flute headjoint that mimics the human voice). Rubiks’s virtuosic playfulness comes to the fore in Jessie Marino’s The Whale Is a Capital Fish, a celebration of the ritual absurdity and technical mastery exhibited in everyday activities. Capping this off are new Australian works from Sydney’s trailblazing Alice Chance and the winner of Rubiks’s 2019 Pythia Prize.
