In celebration of Speak Percussion’s 10th birthday this program reflects it’s oeuvre and dedication to new and challenging Australian art music. All the works are focussed around the keyboard percussion family and were premiered by the group.

Speak Percussion contributes to contemporary music by dealing with percussion in innovative ways. Their art exists beyond percussion ensemble and new music practice in an evolving and hybrid form. They have commissioned many new works for percussion and have collaborated with artists from diverse disciplines. Supported by Sound Travellers.
