The Sunshine Coast premiere New Music concert 'Nexus' features an invigorating selection of new works that combine cutting edge technology and world class instrumentalists. The debut interpretation of 'Blue Gold' by award winning Melbourne based composer Ros Bandt will be performed by virtuoso clarinetist Richard Haynes, returning from Switzerland, and internationally acclaimed cellist Louise King. The two instrumentalists will combine to interpret the stunning electroacoustic work composed for cello, clarinets, sculptures and digital colour field imagery. The innovative work investigates the delicate balance between wet and dry with the performers navigating through the rich electroacoustic sound fields sourced from diverse areas such as the deep waters of the Southern Ocean and the arid Mungo desert.
