Splinter Orchestra
The Splinter Orchestra is a large-scale electro-acoustic improvising ensemble based in Sydney. Every Splinter Orchestra performance unfolds a unique improvisational sonic ecology combining highly developed music skills with thoroughly experimental sound-making and an intuitive compositional repertoire built from years of collective engagement.

Sonya Holowell
Sonya’s practice is based around the presentation of exploratory vocal music; from improvisation to pre-composed vocal works spanning centuries, genres and cultural contexts. She utilises a vast range of techniques to highlight the fullest capabilities of the voice, with a particular interest in its capacity to express the inexpressible.

Score Club - (band) - Megan Clune - Matthew Hopkins - Andrew Fedorovitch
Score Club is a group of artists, musicians and composers exploring text-based scores as a provocation for music and art making. Their interest lies with the score as a conduit, as well as its potential to break down the boundaries and hierarchies between subject and object amongst notions of author/performer/audience.

Jim Denley - Amanda Stewart
Join Jim Denley and Amanda Stewart on a sound walk through the surrounding King Cross environment.
