SoundOut 2012: Festival of Free Improvisation, Free Jazz and Experimental Music

In it’s 3rd year the SoundOut festival 2012 will bring to you another bristling sound event to question your ears, allude to the unknown, and see within the fabric of sound, take the threads and unravel them. This is the Free Improvisational, Free Jazz and Experimental Music festival to replenish your ears and mind! 

With provocateurs from the Australia, Quebec, France, Germany, Japan, and the Netherlands that will combine, mix, cross-fertilize, and move sound mountains to uplift inquiring ears.

This year’s festival's sees extraordinary artists such as the brilliant phenomenal free improvising saxophonist Christine Abdelnour and guitarist Ryan Kernoa will redefine musical/sound boundaries; while pianist/electronics Cor Fuhler dissects and reinterprets what is possible on the guitar; Avant-garde flautist Sabine Vogel takes particles of sound to creates vistas of minutiae; while the brilliant electronic improviser Toshimaru Nakamura coaxes virtuosity out of non-imput mixing board devices. Eric Normand and Philippe Lauzier will explore the fissures between the invented and polyphonic, while Australian such as the quixotic wind player Jim Denley and remarkable percussionist Robbie Avenaim confound the known, and other firebrands of the new Rishin Singh, Sam Pettigrew, Tony Osborne, Evan Dorrian, Michael Norris, Richard Johnson, Reuben Lewis and guests will bring their own special unique blend of sound exploration to illuminate these collaborative futures

Like in 2011 this group of players 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 what the new thinkers are up to.

Artists Christine Abdelnour and Ryan Kernoa are proudly supported by the French Consulate in Sydney and SoundOut 2012. Toshimaru Nakamura is supported by the MOFO Festival, the Nownow festival and SoundOut 2012. Eric Normand and Philippe Lauzier are supported by the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec.
