Event Details

This is the 9th year of the annual SoundOut festival, and in 2018 we will bring to you the continuation of the incredible explorative sonic arts event. This is the International 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. With artists from Australia, Austria, Denmark, France, Malaysia, Norway, Sweden and the US that will combine, mix, cross-fertilize, and move sound mountains to inspire inquiring ears.

SoundOut 2018 sees the extraordinary Artists: From Norway and Sweden a duo of: Sten Sandell (piano), and Paal Nilssen-Love (drums); From Austria and France the Duo: Franz Hautzinger (trumpet) and Isabelle Duthoit (Vocals/clarinet); from the US, vocalist Bonnie Lander and expat-cellist Judith Hamann; From Germany saxophonist Georg Wissell; From Denmark (bassist) Adam Pultz-Melbye and expat (guitarist) Julia Reidy in the Duo: Tennis of all Kinds; From Sweden Johan Moir (bassist) with expat Casey Moir (vocalist) in the briliant duo called Ignite; From the Malaysia electroacoustic artist Goh -Lee Kwang; From Melbourne: Prime: saxophonist Scott McCounnachie and guitarist Ren Walters duo; From Sydney: vocal artist Tony Osborne and on Electronic/clarinet Alexandra Spence; From Canberra: Miroslav Bukovsky (trumpet), Amelia Watson (objects, toy piano/prepared piano); Psithurism trio (John Porter (tenor saxophone; Rhys Butler, alto saxophone; Richard Johnson, wind instruments) and brilliant young composer/improviser Ben Drury on double bass + many more surprise Artists.

The 2018 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 is very grateful for the generous support from the ACT Government for the 2018 Festival. We are also grateful to the friends of SoundOut, and the volunteers that help with the festival. Special gratitude goes to the Drill Hall Gallery and Staff for their consistent friendship, generosity and support; as well as School of Music in Canberra for the generous help with equipment and use of the Bandroom for the Workshops. The Artists would like to thank their respective governments and cultural institutions for their support: The Norwegian Government, the Swedish government; the Austrian Embassy; and the Danish and German Governments.
