The '2 Minutes From Home' project features 20 x 2 minute works written for the Decibel ScorePlayer, a iPad score reader for graphic notations. Each work is presented as an audio-visual experience, showing the ensemble playing their parts in their homes alongside the different scores in different presentation approaches designed by videographer Karl Ockelford. Created by composers accross the world, in different lockdown and isolation periods between July and December 2020, this is an esoteric collection of "beautiful, eye-catching miniatures" (Limelight Magazine) and "an interesting and challenging new take on playing and commissioning music" ( SeeSaw Magazine).

Sistermanns and worked with iconic Australian composers Jon Rose, Alan Lamb, Ross Bolleter, Warren Burt, Eric Griswold, and Anthony Pateras.
