Extasis is a night of live performances by some of the world’s leading contemporary experimentalists. Held across both the Art Gallery of New South Wales buildings, Extasis will bring Volume to its most abstract and boundary-pushing heights, ushering in an evening of exceptional artistic innovation. 

Curated by composer and artist Lawrence English (Room40), Extasis will activate the Art Gallery’s campus with exploratory sonic approaches orbiting outward from drifting ambience, neo-classical forms and reductive electronics. This program is deep and expansive, with a steadfast focus on local and international senior career musicians, Indigenous sonic conversations and diverse perspectives.
