scapegoat is an experimental saxophone and percussion duo. Close creative collaboration and multi-media projects form the basis of their pursuit for artistic innovation and expression. Programmes are designed to broaden and challenge the musical experience of the audience, through original works featuring live electronics, performer-controlled sonic and visual amplification, video and lighting design, and improvisation. scapegoat's 2017/18 season features new commissions of composers Pierluigi Billone and Michelle Lou funded by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, with residencies and performances as part of an Australian tour, a Californian tour, and at the Ultima Festival (Oslo) and Open Ears Festival (Kitchener). scapegoat recently recorded works by Mauricio Pauly and Santiago Díez Fischer to be released on an upcoming record in collaboration with writer Renee Gladman. Upcoming projects include collaborations with Sabrina Schroeder, Hanna Hartman, and Sam Salem.
