Golden Hornet

A Composer Laboratory for the 21st Century

Inspired by the collaborative spirit of rock bands and the lineage of classical music, Golden Hornet commissions new music, fosters young and emerging composers, and presents adventurous works in non-traditional settings.

The ambition and invention of Golden Hornet range from symphonies,
soundtracks, to improvised super rock. Their recordings are a catalog of their adventures crossbreeding classical futurism and punk espirit.
