In 2019 we plan to commission five new works to use in the collaborative project ‘Talking Board’ – a composition read in the Decibel ScorePlayer app for performance in our 2019-2020 concert programs. Your donation goes directly to the composers – not to administration costs.

What we are calling “difficult music,” in all it’s highly pleasurable and arresting forms, has not been targeted for support elsewhere. Decibel’s established reputation and track record makes the ensemble ideally placed to attain the best results from such a program, incorporating—uniquely in Australia—a unique mix of electronic and acoustic instruments.

The Difficult Commission Project is endorsed by Bryce Moore, Presenter of Difficult Listening, RTRFM

Decibel are:
Cat Hope – Artistic Director, flutes
Louise Devenish – percussion
Stuart James – piano, percussion, programming
Tristen Parr – ’cello
Lindsay Vickery – reeds, programming
Aaron Wyatt – viola, programming

“… adventurous, inquisitive, challenging. They both honour and sabotage modernist traditions. They’re at times uplifting, at others, terrifying, and almost always, thought-provoking. Decibel are doing things that literally no-one else in the state, even the country, is doing…”
Lyndon Blue, Cool Perth Nights, June 2011
