MSO Associate Conductor Benjamin Northey said: “This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the work and creativity of two outstanding composers who have made a significant and lasting contribution to Australian music.  I know everybody at the MSO is deeply committed to this project and I see it as one of our most exciting and artistically meaningful collaborations to date.”

Melbourne International Film Festival Artistic Director Al Cossar said: “Cave and Ellis’ indelible, deeply felt compositions layer and breathe both beauty and unease through the stories of singular filmmakers such as John Hillcoat, Amy Berg and Andrew Dominik. This is a rare and special opportunity for Australian audiences to experience their work that has been created specifically for film — we’re delighted to be partnering with the MSO in a celebration of the cinematic imaginations of these two incredible artists.”
