Judith Hamann & Aviva Endean

Clarinettist Aviva Endean and cellist Judith Hamann will perform a one-off show in solo and duo mode for the first time in WA.

Two of Australia’s most versatile instrumentalists join forces to explore a rich landscape of unexpected sonorities and timbres. Aviva (clarinets, winds) and Judith (cello) draw upon their backgrounds in improvisation, contemporary classical music, and experimental practice to create lush hybrid sound worlds, full of contrast and camouflage.

Aviva and Judith will also be performing in the Sonus Tour Finale, as part of Tura’s Regional Touring Program, in Fremantle on July 9.

Judith Hamann
Judith Hamann is a cellist and performer/composer from Birraranga (Melbourne), Australia. She has “long been recognised as one of Australia’s foremost contemporary-music cellists” (RealTime Arts). Judith’s performance practice stretches across various genres encompassing elements of improvised, contemporary classical, experimental, and popular music. Currently her work is focused on ‘Materialities of Realisation’ (a discourse based project with Charles Curtis), an examination of expressions and manifestations of ‘shaking’ in her solo performance practice, and a collection of new works for cello and humming.

Judith is a champion of new and rarely performed music, immersive approaches to sound, and engages with a range of interdisciplinary and experimental projects.
