Ensemble Offspring and Melbourne’s Speak Percussion team up for the very first time with maverick composer-inventor Jon Rose in the world premiere of an artistic exploration of Australia’s iconic Ghan railway. Ghan Tracks mashes video projections and electronics with live performance on pedal powered zither, electric cement mixer, wind machine, piccolo, bass clarinet, trombone and multiple percussion, into a bizarre documentary-like spectacle. The evening kicks off to a wobbly start with a threnody of singing carpentry saws in Singularities for Saw Orchestra.
Jon Rose (director, new instruments)/Lamorna Nightingale (piccolo)/Jason Noble (bass clarinet)/Carolyn Johns (sousaphone)/Clayton Thomas (double bass)/Claire Edwardes (percussion)/Damien Ricketson (plectraphone)/Eugene Ughetti (Speak Percussion)/Jennifer Torrence (Speak Percussion)
