I think of musical space as open rather than bounded, which is why I speak about projection in the sense that I want to simply project a sound, a musical thought, to initiate it, and then let it take its own course.

Founded by Melbourne composer and trombonist Charles MacInnes, Ensemble Density is a collective of leading instrumentalists specialising in the performance of improvised contemporary art music. Compositional responsibility is distributed evenly amongst each of the musical identities in the group, and each performance is presented as a collaborative process involving musician, listener, context, acoustic and medium – each with a distinctive creative voice.
