Ensemble Offspring - Avialae

Ensemble Offspring - Avialae
Ensemble Offspring is Australia’s pre-eminent adventurous new music group, with a reputation for original programming at the highest level. EO pursues an agenda of directly shaping the music of our time. The ensemble is based on the philosophy of promoting artistic integrity, open-mindedness and challenging the way artists and audiences think about music.

Based in Sydney, EO is led by acclaimed percussionist and founding member Claire Edwardes, and features a core line-up of six of Australia’s most well-regarded musicians: Lamorna Nightingale (flute), Jason Noble (clarinet), Véronique Serret (violin), Blair Harris (cello), Bree van Reyk (drum kit & percussion) and Zubin Kanga (piano). Outside of EO, members might be found performing with choirs, collaborating with singer-songwriters, joining dancers on stage or performing concertos with world class orchestras.

With the creation of new work at the heart of EO’s activities, the group constantly commissions composers through its Noisy Egg Creation Fund and works regularly with emerging and established Australian composers such as Andrea Keller, Mary Finsterer, Matthew Shlomowitz, Michael Smetanin and Kate Moore and international composers including Michael Norris, Simon Steen-Andersen, Louis Andriessen, Michael Finnissy and Genevieve Murphy. In 2017 the group presented a full year of works by female composers.

About this track...

‘Avialae’ translated from Latin means ‘bird wings’. The piece incorporates the birdsongs of five endangered Australian species: Painted Snipe, Swift Parrot, Carnaby's Cockatoo, Regent Honeyeater and Ground Parrot. Avialae explores a disappearing natural sound world and hopes to bring to attention our environmental situation, where if nothing is done to protect our ecosystems, these songs may permanently be silenced.
