OOi - Goodtime Studios - 26 Oct 2012

Born in Australia and raised musically in Berlin,OOi is a musical chameleon. Taking the viola out of the orchestra and into a new space influenced by performance art and experimental film, she combines disciplines flawlessly to create an engaging audiovisual experience. Intimate Decisions will feature OOI both as a soloist and member of Melbourne-basedQuartet2100, alongside Natasha Conrau (violin), Daniel Lopez (violin) and Eleanor Streatfeild (cello)

Returning to Australia for a limited series of concerts in Sydney and Melbourne fresh from studies with the Kronos Quartet and European tours with Christina Vantzou’s Little Prism Ensemble, Phia and Amanda Palmer, OOi will be performing Intimate Decisions by Australian composer Brett Dean, Hora We aLunga by Gyorgy Ligeti and Candenza per Solo Viola byKrysztof Penderecki alongside video installations created and inspired by the works. With Quartet2100, OOi will perform Phillip Glass’s String Quartet no. 5 and a new work by Melbourne composer Lisa Ilean titled Stolen Air, commissioned by the group.
