Sound Travellers tour grants announced
Sixteen ensembles, bands and individual artists have received a touring grant from the second round of the Sound Travellers initiative. The recipients include Mark Isaacs Resurgence Band, composer Ross Bolleter (for Ten Days on the Island events in Tasmania), Ensemble Offspring (for their involvement with the Totally Huge New Music Festival in Perth), Topology, the sound art group Artefact (Camilla Hannan, Thembi Soddell, Eamon Sprod), the Panoptique Electrical project, West End Composers Collective from Brisbane, Way Out West, Trio Apoplectic, and sound artist Joel Stern. For a full list of grant recipients, please visit the Sound Travellers website.
Sound Travellers is funded by the Australia Council Music Board to support artists and bands in the promotion and national touring of sound art/electronica, improvised jazz and contemporary classical music. The first round took place last year. The grant announcement coincided with the launch of a Sound Travellers compilation double CD with music by the artists and ensembles or bands in question. The CD is available for free through the project’s website.
