About Elison Ensemble
ELISION is an Australian performing arts company of international significance.

They have established a virtuosic profile for Australian new music performance and ELISION is heavily engaged in experimenting with different modes of performance. The practice of the group ranges from giving concerts right through to cross-disciplinary projects. They produce a range of new media and visual artists, installation-performance works, and they use ad-lib experiences as a tool to make more structured and formally notated music.

Some of the international concert and recording engagements that they have played at include performances at the Hebbel Theater of Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonie and Konzerthaus, Judisches Museum Berlin, Wien Modern, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the Westdeutscher Rundfunk, and many more. They also have a huge program within Australia and this includes major appearances at the Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide Festivals.

They have also released several recordings with NMC, MODE, Etcetera and ABC Classics. They have recently produced the performance-installation work TULP, the body public with composer John Rodgers and new media artist Justine Cooper which premiered at both Sydney and Brisbane festivals.

There are many more major projects which have been included in their repertoire. ELISION has recorded over fourteen compact discs, toured about 19 times internationally to 14 different countries. They have also initiated 34 international commissions supported by organisations in England, Canada, Holland, France and Japan.

In the group, there are now some 20 leading musicians from four Australian capital cities, Singapore, Manchester, Paris, Berlin, Cologne, Bonn and Bern.
