Australia’s most innovative instrumentalists Ensemble Offspring celebrate the work of legendary minimalist composer Steve Reich, performing a suite of his most pioneering, hypnotic music.
Led by acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, ARIA-nominated Sydney musical mavericks Ensemble Offspring have are a collective of multi-talented collaborators exploring new ideas through experiential performances that transcend genre and place.
Together they bring to life the visionary sounds of living American composer Steve Reich, whose breakthroughs in repetitive patterns, phasing, tape loops and harmonic rhythm made him indisputably one of the most influential musicians of the late 20th century.
Featured are Reich’s famous “Drumming Part One” and “Music for Pieces of Wood”, the minimalist layered solo originally for flute but this time for vibraphone “Vermont Counterpoint”, and his more recent percussion and piano work, “Quartet”. Bernadette Harvey will also perform Kevin Puts’s three-movement piano solo, “Alternating Current”.
With Bernadette Harvey and Benjamin Kopp on piano, and Claire Edwardes, Mark Robinson, Kevin Man, and Kerryn Joyce on percussion.
Gates open at 7PM. Arrive early and settle into the Piazza with an aperitivo or appetiser before the performance. See the Sunset Piazza menu here.
