Moirai

Art Form: Music/Sound

Residency Year: 2024

Melbourne’s new crossover ensemble defies genre. This trio of versatile and creative musicians is bursting with new ideas on collaboration and improvisation. Grown from a foundation in art music, Moirai binds old and new music into dynamic and innovative performance experiences. They hold a fascination with folk tunes from eastern Europe, medieval dance music, and a curiosity for unusual rhythms and sounds. Moirai’s unique instrumentation is the golden thread that ties their bold individuality together.

After a private launch in mid-2023, Moirai performed and recorded in collaboration with Monash University’s Composition & Music Technology Department. Moirai will debut in March at Music, She Wrote festival presented by 3MBS. They are awarded a Bundanon Trust residency, and will commission a new work with percussionist and composer Chloe Kim, and tour regional New South Wales.

Moirai is committed to commissioning new Australian works, bringing high-quality music to the regions, and creating inclusive and accessible performances.

In Residence at Bundanon

In residence, Moirai will create a touring concert program, and collaborate with composer Chloe Kim on a new work entitled How are you so bright?, a rhythm-driven exploration of contrasts and possibilities. At the culmination of this residency, Moirai will tour their new program across regional NSW. As an emerging ensemble, this residency serves as a valuable learning experience, challenging them to push their boundaries, refine their rehearsal techniques, and explore their specialised repertoire and musical styles. Coming together from around the country, the residency will offer creative growth, serenity, and a space for immersion.
