Sideband began as a recording project initiated by emerging Australian composers Tristan Coelho, Brad Gill and Peter McNamara in 2012, and has since evolved into a composer-performer collective. The group's mission is to create, present, develop and promote new and innovative repertoire for the collective, particularly incorporating live electronics and multi-media through dynamic recordings and performances.
