This is the milestone 5th year of the annual SoundOut festival, and in 2014 we will bring to you the continuation of the incredible bristling explorative sonic arts event. This is the Free Improvisational, Free Jazz and Experimental Music festival to will uplift tired ears, explore the unknown, see within the fabric of sound, unravel the threads of normative musical praxis, and question sonic hegemonies. It will replenish your ears and mind! With Artists from Australia, France, Norway, Poland, UK/US, Germany, and Canada that will combine, mix, cross-fertilize, and move sound mountains to inspire inquiring ears. This coming years festival 2014 sees extraordinary artists such as the brilliant improviser Jim Denley (Aust) shift the ground on sound perception, taking our ears to unknown realms, while the astounding V&A Duo (UK/US) dissect the inner working of voice and violin forging them anew with the vision of experimental film maker Louise Curham (Aust); The phenomenal Overtone Ensemble (Aust) delves into the inner sound of metal rods; while astonishing pianist Cor Fuhler (NL/Aust) explores the textured world of the prepared piano; the sublimely innovative guitarist Kim Myhr (NO) & dancer Maya Repillion (Fr/NL) explore the sound dance improvised boundaries; extraordinary bassists Clayton Thomas (Gr/Aust) and Slawek Janicki (Poland) coax virtuosity from between the fractures in sound; Radio Cestege (NZ) plays with our ears and the electronics of the airwaves; Ross Manning (Aust) reinvents our notions of the sound source with invented instruments; incredible saxophonist and guitarist Rosalind Hall and Dave Brown improvise the nuanced delicacy of sonic play, while other Australian firebrands of the new Evan Dorrian, John Porter, Reuben Lewis Rhys Butler, Richard Johnson and guests, will bring their own special unique blend of sonic exploration to illuminate these collaborative futures.
The 2014 group of artists has never gathered before and never will again in the same configuration, but they are all involved in an international dialogue that is essential to the unfolding of new music structures and what it means to be human in the 21st Century. Come, see and hear the new music evolve. SoundOut 2014 is very grateful for the continued generous support from the ACT Government, SoundOut and the volunteers that help with the festival. The French Consulate; the Norwegian Government; and Polish Government all proudly support the respective artists from their countries in coming to SoundOut 2014.
