Ben Carely and Chi-Uro – Sonic Art Music

June 11, 2011


BEN CAREY saxophonist and composer join with Melbourne-based CHI-URO in an evening of sonic art music at the Sydney Conservatorium.

  • 8pm, Saturday 11 June 2011
  • Recital Hall East, Sydney Conservatorium
  • Adult $20 | Concession and Under 30 $12

Sydney-based saxophonist, composer, technologist Ben Carey will in this program perform three new works for solo saxophone and live electronics. Each piece on the program explores different approaches to the use of the saxophone in live electronics performance, encompassing multichannel sound diffusion, live sound processing and computer listening and improvisation techniques. Included in the program will be two world premières by Australian composers Mark Oliveiro and Ben Carey, as well an Australian première by American composer Dan Tramte.

Melbourne-based Chi-Uro were formed in 2010 by Kim Tan (flute) and Samuel Dunscombe (clarinet) and are committed to staging rarely performed new works and commissioning works from Australian composers. The ensemble’s programs bring the enormously versatile, and still relatively uncharted, sonic palette of wind instruments to the fore, as well as augmenting and enhancing their instruments with live electronics. This program focuses on various ways in which the sonic palette of traditional wind instruments has been extended and augmented over the past 20 years – from extended techniques to the use of live electronics. It features two Australian Premiers, and one World Premier.
