Golden Hornet

A Composer Laboratory for the 21st Century

Drawing on the collaborative spirit of rock bands and the composer-led nature 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 esprit.
