The Enigma Quartet present an exciting programme of new pieces for shakuhachi & string quartet from leading Australian composers including Ross Edwards, Katy Abbott Kvasnica, Stuart Greenbaum, Paul Stanhope, Holly Harrison, Andrew Howes, Anne Boyd & Gerard Brophy . Each piece is inspired by the elements, fire, water, earth, air and ether. 

'5 Elements' is a new collaborative project between world renowned shakuhachi master, Dr Riley Lee & the Enigma Quartet. Together, they are commissioning some of Australia's most interesting and original compositional voices to create new music for this incredible combination of Eastern and Western instruments. More than just a traditional concert experience however, the music and performance will provide a pathway for audiences to experience, explore and contemplate their own natural environment through photography and image, using the framework of Ancient Eastern principles that the earth was made of just five fundamental elements; water, earth, fire, air and ether.
