Presented by Tura New Music and PICA.
In Perth, Alessandro Bosetti will perform Mask Mirror in PICA’s Main Gallery Space, a piece which sits in the slippage between information and pure sound in speech. Examining the point at which language becomes music, and at which music becomes a language Bosetti uses a synthesiser to manipulate spoken word samples from field research, interviews, conversations and soliloquies, developing elaborate abstract live compositions.
Makiko Yamamoto vocally performs Utterly Silent, Utter Silence, Utterly Something, or Utter Something, Thinking Thinking, Utterly Listening, Utterly Ummm, to query language and the voice, especially the struggle to speak, hear and understand foreign tongues.
Id M Theft Able (AKA Skot Spear) performs Blood, Blood, Jars of Blood, a deeply singular experimental music performance primarily using vocals (grunts, screams, tongue-clicks, gurgling, chanting) in combination with sounds summoned from a range of amplified and unamplified objects, bent circuits, homebuilt keyboards and modified tape machines.
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.
