art music ensemble
ELISION has established an international reputation as Australia’s premier new music ensemble through successful engagement with complex and challenging aesthetics. The ensemble has been celebrated for establishing rare and long-term artistic relationships with composers, its virtuosity, and the ability and deep commitment of ELISION musicians towards pushing physical boundaries in search of certain kinds of visceral expressive experiences, the musical body in extremis being a benchmark of the ensemble’s repertoire.
ELISION first began with a residency at the Footscray Community Arts Centre in 1986 and has since performed at the National Concert Hall Taipei, Berlin Philharmonie, Saitama Arts Theatre Tokyo, the Pompidou Centre, Sydney Opera House, the Center for 21st Century Music Buffalo and Vienna Konzerthaus; at festivals such as Wien Modern, Maerzmusik, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Festival Ars Musica Brussels, Züricher TheaterSpektakel, the 50th Warsaw Autumn Festival, Ultima Oslo, TRANSIT Festival Leuven, Spitalfields, the Chekov International Theatre Festival of Moscow, BIFEM, the Shanghai New Music Week, Festival d’Automne à Paris and the Vértice Festival of Mexico.
