Event Details

Decibel is Perth's freshest new music ensemble devoted to the nexus of acoustic and electronic instruments. The group was formed out of a desire to perform a range of music where electronic and acoustic instruments feature side by side and is dedicated to Australian music and emerging Western Australian composers.

This concert focuses on works that involve acoustic instruments playing with the 'tape' as another instrument. The group works on this concept in a number of ways: literally on tape, CD, with sampler, turntable or computer.The performance features works written for Decibel by Warren Burt and a commission, from emerging Western Australian composer, Dan Thorne.

Featured non-Australian music: Eno, Burroughs, Kagel
