Australia’s premier percussion ensemble, Synergy Percussion has unveiled one of its most ambitious projects in the organisation’s 42-year history, 40Under40; a unique new media art project consisting of a slew of newly commissioned audio-visual artworks.

Commissioned, composed and recorded over a course of a year, 40Under40 combines the musical skills of the ensemble with the talents of video artists such as Sam James, Matthew McGuigan, Sam Brumby and Sabrina Organo, and is a collection of 40 short audio-visual pieces featuring contemporary new music which has been independently commissioned by individuals, and devised by 40 composers from around the world. 

This program is an opportunity to hear from some of the world’s best virtuoso percussionists and drummers across a broad range of contemporary genres offering a unique way to experience of what is currently happening in international contemporary music. Composers featured within the project include Elena Kats Chernin, Michael Gordon and Paul Stanhope, among others.
