Three mysterious, shimmering chamber works by the Australian composer Newton Armstrong, performed by Plus Minus Ensemble and Séverine Ballon (cello) "In 1990 I was studying composition at university. I basically wanted to be Stravinsky. Chris Mann took an interest in me and I started spending a lot of time at his house, drinking tea and talking. He changed my mind about a lot of things and introduced me to people who were making music that excited me. The Melbourne experimental scene was thriving at that time, and I started going to concerts and performances that I previously wouldn't have heard about. It hasn't exactly been a straight-line trajectory since then, but I view that period as providing the foundations for the work I'm doing today.

Newton Armstrong is a composer, electronics performer, and occasional builder of electronic musical instruments. Much of his work focusses on forms of music-making that emerge in the composed interactions between people, technologies, and their environments.
