Join Tasmanian artists Pip Stafford and Julia Drouhin (editors note: Julia is French Tasmanian!) as they discuss their work involving radiophonic broadcast experiments, occult vibrations and rituals, cosmic noise, chocolate LPs and more. The session will be part talk, part performance and whole opportunity to meet and get to know the artists.
This intimate presentation, at the Art Centre’s new music learning space The Channel, is part of Pip and Julia’s build up to their major project, Sisters Akousmatica, which has been developed through Next Wave’s Emerging Curators Program in partnership with Liquid Architecture and will be presented at Next Wave Festival 2016.
Sisters Akousmatica is a city-scale radio acousmonium that focuses on the concept of ‘akousma’ – sound removed from its source. Using radio broadcast technology, sounds will be distributed to multiple listening spaces across the city, creating a sonic web of live performances by a collective of radical women sound artists.
Full details for this work will be revealed on 15 March when the entire Next Wave program goes public. We can’t wait!
