ELISION is Australia’s premiere contemporary music ensemble. Its musicians have established a reputation for delivering authoritative and virtuosic interpretations of complex, unusual and challenging aesthetics, often developed in close collaboration with the composer….In recent years Liza Lim has been drawn to the hidden economies of ritual, authority and ownership expressed in Australian Aboriginal art. It is tempting to draw parallels between this secret culture and Lim’s two-decade involvement with the ELISION ensemble, one of the most musically invigorating composer-ensemble relationships in today’s music…..Bryn Harrison’s relationship with ELISION has also informed surface forms (repeating), which contains a density of surface detail rarely found elsewhere in his music.
