The IMA is pleased to partner with Liquid Architecture for their 2015 program in Brisbane. The event unfolds over two evenings in various spaces at the IMA, and features a selection of international and Australian artists performing and presenting in the city for the first time.

The program extends a set of recurring themes that mark Liquid Architecture’s broader 2015 activities: Capitalist Surrealism’s peculiar fantasies of productivism, Feminist Methodologies and the idea of sound as an acoustic mirror for society; and Sonic Warfare as an expression of the pervasiveness of state-corporate eavesdropping, and noise.

Saturday October 3rd, 5pm – 9pm

Brisbane artist Nicola Morton will try to engage her doppleganger, technology entrepreneur Ariel Garten, in a battery of psychic tests to “see if she can ‘sense’ what I am thinking.” Melbourne scholar Dr. James Parker will survey the privileged landscapes and material technics of sonic warfare; the iconic New Waver will appropriate classic rock songs in an examination of the trials and tribulations of contemporary life, to the art of Powerpoint; Irish Dadaist Jennifer Walshe will operatically sing the internet; and mysterious Kiwi outsider Kraus will abuse a home-made synthesizer.

Sunday October 4, 5pm – 9pm

Academic Anja Kanngieser & musician Daniel Jenatsch will sonically perform the effects of capitalist production and social relations on ecology; British folk artist Richard Dawson will belt out songs of dreams held dear and worlds unknown; techno-maverick Basic House will undo dance-music for its own good; while Brisbane artist Alrey Batol eavesdrops on the whole scene.

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound. These events are curated by Joel Stern and Danni Zuvela.
