An evening of radical sound works occupying the galleries, screening room and courtyard of the IMA. FEATURING: Alessandro Bosetti, Bianca Hester, Emile Zile, ID M Theft Able
● Italian artist Alessandro Bosetti will perform in the slippage between information and pure sound in speech – the point at which language becomes music, and at which music becomes a language with his work Mask Mirror, in which he uses a synthesiser to manipulate spoken word samples from field research, interviews, conversations and soliloquies to develop elaborate, evolving abstract live compositions.
● One-man-category-non-conformist Maine, USA experimental performer i dm thffftt able will stage a series of deeply singular experimental music performances primarily using vocals (grunts, screams, tongueclicks, gurgling, chanting) in combination with sounds summoned from a mostly jerryrigged arsenal of amplified and unamplified objects, bent circuits, homebuilt keyboards and modified tape machines.
● Melbourne artist Emile Zile will detourn everyday social media and search tools in a dynamic live performance that offer new perspectives on these readytohand tools, and the subtle ways these might condition contemporary experience.
● Sydney-based artist Bianca Hester, appearing in Brisbane for the first time, will perform her sculptural intervention, Sonic Alterations of Constructed Space With Metal Objects, in the IMA courtyard.
Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for events, exhibitions, performances and situations of the world’s leading artists working with sound.
Once a “sense-specific” festival, interested in listening and the depth of individual sound perception, Liquid Architecture is broadening its focus of concern to engage the social, cultural, political, economic as well as aesthetic frameworks in which sound takes place.
Now in its 15th year, Liquid Architecture’s 2014 festival program brings together work from across a range of disciplines to audiences in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore. Marking the new direction driven by curators Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela is the festival’s focus on social and conceptual questions, signalling a more sustained engagement with the discourse, sound and practices of contemporary art.
This is a move into the investigation of the audible as an expression of the myriad, sometimes inaudible forces enframing, encoding, describing and producing what we hear – whether that is considered music, sound, or noise.
