KIM MYHR takes to the stage with one of Australia’s most distinctive and adventurous contemporary music ensembles the AUSTRALIAN ART ORCHESTRA, performing the world premiere of a work he created especially for the shape-shifting 10-piece orchestra. Two violinists, two drummers, bass, hammered dulcimer, electronics, bass clarinet, Revox reel-to-reel tape machine and Myhr’s 12-string electric guitar make up the unusual sonic union.
