‘Hypnotic’, ‘Trance-inducing’ ‘virtuosic’ and captivating’ Aviva Endean’s work for solo clarinets exists in the space between composition and improvisation. Distinct and refined instrumentations set up a framework of unique sonic environments, which then become a landscape for Aviva’s slowly morphing and contemplative improvisations. 

In this new set created especially for Illuminate Adelaide, Aviva expands on her unique and exploratory instrumental practise, interweaving field recordings, lo-fi electronics and effects processing, to create waves of spectral and timbral exploration.
