How about this? We can follow up with artist announcements and more in the coming 2 weeks. feel free to format it boldy with a bit of punch. black on white is cool with perhaps the LA logo (attached) at the top?

Liquid Architecture 2014 – Announcement 20 May 2014

Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela: We have an important announcement to make about Liquid Architecture. Actually, we have two.

Firstly, we would like to announce the date for the 2014 Liquid Architecture festival.

The Liquid Architecture program launch will be held on 8 August, 2014 at West Space in Melbourne. The festival proper will open in Melbourne on 24 September, 2014 with other states to follow. We are calling the festival ‘The Ear is a Brain’. Liquid Architecture will continue to present exceptional showcase events, exhibitions and site-specific performances featuring the world’s leading artists working with sound.

The second announcement is about our directorship.

In 2013 we signed with Liquid Architecture as curators for the 2014 festival. Recently, we have been appointed as Artistic Directors, who together will oversee new creative developments for Liquid Architecture. Our goal is to bring some of the experience and energies we’ve grown over a decade of sustained involvement in experimental art practice to the development of new programs and and projects at Liquid Architecture. We are delighted to be part of the process as Liquid Architecture enjoys the beginnings of a new era of expansion as a key organisation.

We are joined by our Program Manager, Anabelle Lacroix, who brings valuable expertise to her important role in our new team.

We wish to acknowledge the fantastic achievements of the entire LA organisation and express how excited we are to be going on this journey together.

Joel and Danni.

Ur 1st Luv's A Sound Investment is a work about the political economy of art and sound in which the crowd-funding platform Pozible becomes both the subject and the medium of the work. Transforming cultural capital into capitalised culture, Ur 1st Luv seeks to provide object based answers to the question: what is sound art really worth? http://pozi.be/ur1stluv
A Liquid Architecture project by curator Jonathon Nokes, IS THERE BODY IN OUR SOUND?, explores the work of four Australian artists investigating the myriad physical, social, spiritual, psychological and digital interactions between body and sound. http://pozi.be/itbios
Featuring contributors from Australia and the world, The Ear is a Brain: Compendium LP is a limited edition vinyl record in parallel with, and celebration of, Liquid Architecture’s 2014 festival. ‘The Ear is a Brain’ is an artist’s record. It is not the documentation of a work of art or sound. The record is the work of art. http://pozi.be/earisabrain
