Tasmanian Based New Music

Ensemble Mania is a new music collective based between nipaluna/Hobart and naarm/Melbourne and was formed with the goal of providing unique listening experiences for Tasmanian and Victorian audiences. The ensemble’s efforts are focussed on showcasing music that would otherwise not be heard in Australia, from exciting current composers to recently uncovered pieces and local gems.

Since forming in 2020, Ensemble Mania has established itself as an exciting musical enterprise, having partnered with the likes of the Melbourne and Hobart City Councils, The Salamanca Arts Centre, and the Mona Foma Festival. They have presented premieres by Australian composers such as Don Kay, Hellgart Mahler, David William Murray, and Jassy Robertson, and international composers Michael Finnissy, Shiori Usui, Máté Szigeti, Andrew Toovey, and have featured performances by the likes of Peter Tanfield, Alexander Meagher, and Freedman Fellowship winner Kyla Matsuura-Miller.

Upcoming Concert

Line Tracing 4

Our ‘Line Tracing’ concerts consist of an unbroken evening of music composed for solo single-line instruments. For the fourth concert in the series we welcome Ngambri/Canberra-based composer-performer Lynden Bassett (she/her), who will remix each composition in real-time, transitioning between the live performances and creating a cohesive unbroken listening experience.
