We've been working very hard on the Bowral Autumn Music Festival program as we're appearing as a quartet, which is an unusual combination for us. And so, lots of new arrangements & a couple of exciting new works. What a joy to have the opportunity to create, play & share. See you on Saturday in Bowral! ... See MoreSee Less

Today it was officially announced that my dear friend and colleague Timothy Constable resigned as Artistic Director of Synergy. Timothy is one of the most incredible musicians I know. Of course, he is a superb percussionist, but more than this, he is a true artist.
Timothy and his wonderful fellow-Synergisers Bree van Reyk, Josh Hill, and earlier Alison Pratt, have created an amazing body of work that has built on the work of the previous generations of Synergy. We'll miss Timothy, but I wish him the absolute best in the next phase of his career.

I'm a glutton for punishment... just signed up for Riley's Breathe workshop this Sunday. I've attended three previously, and always it's a mixture of pleasure and pain. Pain, you say? How hard can it be to breathe? Well, come & check it out this Sunday at our Ultimo studio. Part exercise, part physiology, part philosophy, the workshop is both stimulating and fun... and you feel great afterward. Like a breath of fresh air! (Ian Cleworth)
