Over 2 performances of 90 minutes each, Sydney MicroFest 2 present a diverse range of wonderful musicians. Clocks and Clouds will fill the ambient space with wondrous cascades of pitch and texture from their new work Anaphorian Shadow Theatre Music Jack Tickner will delight with his microtonal guitar and singing, Greg Schiemer's Satellite Gamelan will be a treat with audience participation using a new mobile phone app as the sound source. Donald Bousted's new work to observe sea and sky is for flute in standard tuning and horn in 19 equal divisions of the octave, Michael H Dixon having acquired an instrument to achieve this clearly. Terumi Narushima has written a new quartet titled Sundew to be performed by LOCANA (Janine Grantham - flute, Rachel Westwood - violin, Michael H Dixon - horn, Matthew Farrell - cello). LOCANA will also perform the beautiful Toivo by Juhani Nuorvala  Greg van der Struik - trombone, will perform stillness of unceasing activity by Michael and join him and Ed Diefes - tuba in the trio Chaconne by Ron Nagorcka. Wendy Dixon will join these six musicians for the aria The Wound, a commentary on the need for healing between Indigenous people and the 'immigrants' post 1770.
