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 continuously broadening its focus of concern to engage the social, cultural, political, economic as well as aesthetic frameworks in which sound takes place. LA has also grown from being a once-a-year festival to holding events throughout the year.
Founded in 1999 in Melbourne, Liquid Architecture’s diverse program brings together work from across a range of disciplines to audiences in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and beyond.
Marking the new direction driven by artistic directors Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela is the festival’s focus on social and conceptual questions, signalling a more sustained engagement with the discourse, sound studies, 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.
