About Ossicle Duo
Ossicle Duo delivers raw, high-energy performances with compelling precision. An exciting partnership between trombonist Benjamin Anderson and percussionist Hamish Upton, the Duo explores the great repertoire that exists for this combination, ranging from post minimalism to the avant-garde.
About the concert
Ossicle Duo delves into music that questions the nature of individuality. Distorted trumpet and trombone join expansive drums and live electronics in Ubiitsi, a study of journalistic freedom in dystopian states. Heather Stebbins evokes electronic sounds in her acoustic work from these old skins for frame drum and trombone. Electronics give an otherworldly feel to Richard Barrett’s CODEX III, a structured improvisation exploring density, articulation and the individual versus the collective. And a new commission for Ossicle Duo by emerging Melbourne-based composer Matthew Laing examines identity and place, using pre-recorded electronics to express the majesty of the universe.
