About this video: Horsley & Williams Duo is a driving force in fusing the worlds of electro-acoustic music and the refined counterpoint of the 18th century within contemporary Australia. The duo has worked extensively with Australian composers to generate works that respond to an electro-acoustic practice, incorporating their instruments’ musical traditions into new amplified landscapes.

This collaboration with composer and electronic musician Carolyn Schofield is the culmination of several years of working in this field. This performance illustrates a reimagined sonic space for folk traditions from around the world, from the British Isles and France through to Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and African Nations.
