Unexpected Consequences focuses on the intricacies and multiplicities of chamber music relationships and delves into the realm of what it means to collaborate in modern times. It is a tour de force through the realms of sonic possibilities of the three instruments (bass clarinet, flutes, and electric guitar), an exploration of sounds, ways of interacting, and the unexpected consequences that emerge. This powerhouse ensemble makes its debut appearance in North America with a program highlighting the unexpected synchronicities in music across time and location.

Sonic Hedgehog can be many trios: each different flute (Shanna Gutierrez, Chicago) changes the sound formation of the entire ensemble; same is true for each of the different clarinets (Fie Schouten, NL), including basset horn. The electric guitar (Wiek Hijmans, NL) is not only a guitar, but also an electronic interface, a midi instrument. In that sense the ensemble is also a wind duo with live electronics. Dedicated to uncovering new sound and sound combinations for their instruments, Sonic Hedgehog seeks to present concerts featuring works written expressly for the group as well as those with open form, theatrical elements, and improvisation.
