In Conversation: MSO's Cybec Composers

"You just have to get yourself out there, and that’s the most difficult thing. Whether that’s meeting people in the foyer after concerts and shaking hands, becoming friends, then sending them your music, or entering competitions. Or cold-emailing people! You might not get an email back, but until people know your name nothing is going to happen" – Connor D'Netto

Brisbane’s Argo turns best-selling book into space opera

Brisbane’s Argo turns best-selling book into space opera

"Ever wondered what another universe would sound like? Brisbane classical/electronic duo Argo will show you this month when they set best-selling sci-fi novel Illuminae to music for the Brisbane Writers Festival.

The duo is made up of young composers Connor D’Netto and Ben Heim, and together they’ve created a cinematic, “surround sound” experience that’s set to place audiences in the centre of this explosive book from Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Think artificial intelligence and star cruiser battles against a backdrop of live strings and electronics.

Sounds pretty cool, huh?"
