Music that goes against the grain.

Rightfully considered one of the country’s most exciting and forward-thinking chamber groups

Too much is never enough

Dark myths and disturbing forces are often the source of great music. Strange, peculiar and at times cataclysmic, this music transports you beyond our physical world and forces you to question the things you know to be true.

Featuring music that goes against the grain, this powerful program includes works by the world's leading and most sought after contemporary composers. Bursting with atmosphere and boundary pushing instrumental colours, it is music that embodies the spirit of an unapologetic rebel willing to test the limits of the law.
