Is classical music already dead to the younger generation? anon. argues otherwise. This Australian classical music group is dedicated to reinvigorating classical music, and showing others how special it can be. They created the project, "Trailer Music" exactly for this purpose. First, watch their performance on the TEDxFoggyBottom stage.Then, play the movie attached in the link down below to get the full "Trailer Music experience."

anon. are an emerging Melbourne-based chamber music group, increasingly recognized for their innovative and design-led approach in offering modern audiences a new perspective on the concert experience. Graduates of the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, co-founders Nicole Tj (piano) and Thomas Lo (violin) collaborate with top young musicians and creatives to present unique performance concepts. Together with cellist Tim Hennessy, they perform regularly around Melbourne and live-on-air on 3MBS FM. In 2015, they successfully raised $10000 through a crowdfunding campaign for their film and music collaboration, TRAILER MUSIC. Both Nicole and Thomas are also forging parallel careers alongside music - their work in business consulting and architecture respectively position them in a unique space as creative entrepreneurs. They have been invited back to speak at the University of Melbourne’s IgniteLAB. 2016 performances include White Night Melbourne, and a debut at Melbourne Recital Centre.
