Arvos at Tempe, Nov 1

Arvos at Tempe #1
Sunday 1st November
Tempe Jets
Holbeach Ave, Tempe
Gates open at 5pm, sounds from 5:30pm

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard the tinkle and roar of experimental sounds played live in Sydney. Arvos at Tempe will be a regular event ‘in the open’ on the repurposed bowling green at Tempe Jets, so that, once again, we can get down to the important work of performing the previously unheard.

3 solos from 3 of Sydney’s most interesting sound makers:

Mimi Kind
Peter Blamey
Anthony Guerra

The pandemic has changed much of our lives and ways of performing and listening to the world. For this event, we ask that you register and pay online here. There is a limit of 20 guests, and we will encourage social distancing etiquette. Entry will be via the outdoor side gate, we will be around so you won’t miss it! The only access to the building will be for the toilets. Kid-friendly. BYO picnic blankets and refreshments.

Material Sound touring exhibition begins! First stop: Taree

Material Sound is a multi-form exhibition that draws together six art practitioners and collaborative groups, each creating an experience of sound within installations constructed from everyday materials. Handmade instruments and electronics, recycled components, outmoded technologies, fake technologies, imagined sounds, and silences are brought together to challenge the way we think about materiality in a cumulative sound experience.

Material Sound features work by artists Vicky Browne, Pia van Gelder, Caitlin Franzmann, Peter Blamey, Vincent & Vaughan O’Connor and Ross Manning, whose works and practices investigate sound and materials within art and performance. These artists are at the forefront of an international interest in the material qualities of sound and its modes of generation. In Australia, this interest particularly addresses the ecological consequences of the materials we so readily consume and discard.
