Seven new works by five Taikoz members sit side by side in...Side By Side!
After our shared experience of lockdown in 2020, the fruits of Taikoz’s creativity emerge stronger than ever in 2021. Featuring new works by emerging composers from within the ensemble, Side By Side sees the full expressivity of Taikoz – the breathless chase of Kerryn Joyce’s Run!, Sophia Ang’s spectral taiko solo Shadow Games, Ryuji Hamada’s joyous Yasaka, Ian Cleworth’s colourful and dramatic multi-percussion duet A-Un, and Claudia Wherry’s Gamelan inspired Cocoon.
Complimenting the program is the World Premiere of the winner of Taikoz’s 2020 Women Composers Competition – Karlin Love’s Fierce: The Vengeance Of Joy.
Come and celebrate, experience and contribute to real, live music making with Taikoz in 2021 at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre.
