Ensemble Offspring are new music champions. Led by acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, a devotion to fearless music-making has seen EO premiere over 200 works over the course of 25 years.
Vibe Rant refers to the abbreviated form of vibraphone: ‘vibes’, and also ‘rant’, from the Dutch word ‘ranten’: to talk nonsense. Together these words form ‘vibrant’, which is the overall mood of the piece. Vibe Rant sets up a series of juxtapositions, creating a stylistic patchwork that embraces influences from vernacular genres including jazz, pop, hip-hop, dance, rock, and metal.

David Hush & Hamed Sadeghi - Yes     Classical 05/04/2019
This duo project between Hush and Sadeghi takes two instrumental masters pairing piano and tar to create 10 tracks of suspenseful, meditative and contrasting music.
Yes is the first single from Harmony. As Hush’s piano opens up the song with a smooth developing form, Sadeghi’s tar eventually arrives, taking the listener to a far-away place. The song seems a thousand miles away from the warmth of Hush’s piano, but nonetheless a keen ear will still hear compositional and note similarities between each instrumental performance

Sarah Mary Chadwick - The Queen Who Stole The Sky     Classical 04/04/2019
The prolific Sarah Mary Chadwick returns with ‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’, an album performed and recorded live on Melbourne Town Hall’s 147 year-old grand organ.
‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’ is undeniably commanding, yet punctuated by points of intimacy. The songs have a narrative-like quality, unfolding themselves before their audience. SMC's command of the grand organ is testament to her musicality – the sheer size of the instrument could so easily drown out the nuances of the songwriting – but not so for Sarah.

Julian Yu, Robert Schubert, Trio Varie - Classical Stories - To Comrade Shostakovich     Classical, Instrumental 20/09/2018
Multi-award winning Australian composer Julian Yu employs a musical language imbued with a high degree of elegance and expressiveness, enhanced by an impeccable craft and special attention to detail.
The melody, originally sung by a children's choir in Song of the Forest, reminded Julian of a Chinese folk dance and so the pairing was made. He didn't stop there, though: throughout the piece Shostakovich's signature motif (D E-flat C B) appears many times; the "Internationale" can be heard, and there is also a quote from Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7.
