Rubiks Collective is one of Melbourne’s most dynamic contemporary art music ensembles, bringing together some of Australia’s most exciting and versatile young performers. Since debuting in 2015, the ensemble has been hailed as “a formidable contribution to Australia’s growing community of contemporary music makers” (Partial Durations) and commended for their “incredibly personal, strangely spiritual and ultimately deeply touching” performances (Limelight Magazine). With a particular interest in storytelling and cross-art collaboration, Rubiks has quickly established a reputation for excellence, delighting audiences with their unique programming and dazzling virtuosity.
Formed at the Australian National Academy of Music, the musicians of Rubiks have collectively appeared in festivals including the Sydney and Melbourne International Arts Festivals, Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, Bang on a Can Festival, Eighth Blackbird Creative Lab, Port Fairy Spring Music Festival and Huntington Estate Music Festival.
Rubiks recently launched the ‘Pythia Prize’, a new commission project that will annually see an Australian female composer collaborate with Rubiks to create a new work.
In 2018, Rubiks will perform twice at the Melbourne Recital Centre, including as featured artists in the Metropolis Festival. Rubiks will also make their first international appearance, performing through Germany, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands in July 2018.
