PRESENTED BY CITY RECITAL HALL



This ticket includes access to Bang on a Can All-Stars only

Co-produced with Lyle Chan and Vexations840

Extended Play is a 12-hour micro-festival that explores and celebrates new music in every format imaginable. From noon to midnight, a dynamic line-up of 20 local and international artists will transform City Recital Hall into a rich hub of sonic exploration and musical landscapes. Be prepared to discard your preconceived ideas about music production and performance, and embrace the new, in all its raw, exhilarating, and immersive brilliance.

Headlining the main stage is New York ensemble Bang on a Can All-Stars, who play “a central role in fostering a new kind of audience that doesn’t concern itself with boundaries” (The New York Times). They are recognised worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances, freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music to forge a distinct category-defying identity. Also appearing on the main stage are Sydney’s musical mavericks, Ensemble Offspring, presenting rarely-performed large scale works by Steve Reich, plus ARIA-nominated group Topology, virtuosic ELISION Ensemble, and drummer and instrument designer Alon Ilsar.

In every nook and cranny of the venue you will find musicians of the highest calibre, challenging and exploring the farthest realms of sound creation and instrumental possibility. Explore improvised celestial soundscapes, daredevil piano antics, twinkling electronica, uplifting melodic improvisations and so much more.

Come for the music, but not just to listen. See, feel, explore and play.
