ELISION is Australia's leading instrumental ensemble. The group has established a reputation for delivering authoritative and virtuosic interpretations of complex, unusual and challenging aesthetics, often developed in close collaboration with the composer. The practice of the ensemble ranges from concert-giving to cross-disciplinary projects with a range of new media and visual artists. Installation-performance works and the use of improvisational experiences as a creative tool to inform more structured and formally notated music have been a key element of the group's activities.
International concert and recording engagements received to-date include performances for Maerzmusik, the Hebbel Theater of Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonie and Konzerthaus, Wien Modern, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the Westdeutscher Rundfunk, and Radio Bremen, Festival Ars Musica of Brussels, the Züricher TheaterSpektakel, Saitama Arts Theatre of Japan, IRCAM as part of the Agora Festial, the 50th Warsaw Autumn Festival, the Chekov International Theatre Festival of Moscow, the Festival d'automne of Paris, the TRANSIT Festival of Leuven and the Ultima Festival of Oslo. This activity complements major appearances at the Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide Festivals and the release of several recordings with KAIROS, NEOS, MNC and MODE, reviewed to acclaim by international press.
An initiative of the IETM-Australia Council Collaboration Project.
