For 2018, The Listening Museum 3 will present a series of new works made and performed by cutting edge Australian musicians and sound artists in a live, working factory. The Listening Museum 3 features the debut of Hidden Sounds | Sounds in Motion created by Erik Griswold, Leah Barclay, John Ferguson, Vanessa Tomlinson and Sulja Nezovic. Working with the amazing artisans at UAP including blacksmiths, pattern makers, metalworkers and woodworkers, and using custom machinery including the new giant robotic arm, the composers will design as yet unimaginable sonic experiences.

Clocked Out first presented the Listening Museum in 2013, beginning with a memorable bronze pouring and ending with 20 percussionists spinning ropes in the air. The 2016 version featured “Flutist in a Dumpster”, Kurt Schwitters’ Dada poem UR Sonata accompanied by suspended trombonist, and dialling bagpipers. What will happen in 2018??????

Clocked Out are committed to presenting experimental music, interarts and interdisciplinary collaborations. For 17 years they have used sound as a vehicle to explore central cultural issues such as environmentalism, multi-culturalism, and interactions of science and music. It is the creative outlet of Vanessa Tomlinson and Erik Griswold: the team that have brought your The Piano Mill, The Toy Music Festival, Sounding the Condamine and more.

This collaboration is between Clocked Out and the workers of UAP – a company who describe themselves as. explorers, creatives and makers. UAP collaborate with artists, architects, designers & developers to bring uncommon creativity to the public realm & expert resources to creativity.

The Listening Museum is a non-linear mashup of sonic ideas, with each audience member free to explore, interact and experience it in their own way. It pools together the resources of Clocked Out’s magical team of musicians, dancers and artists with the factory makers.

The Listening Museum donations will be used to support purchasing the materials and installing the sound sculptures (the design of which is funded by The Australia Council). In addition funds will be used to support the collaboration of brand new site specific works to be made by the lead artists (Tomlinson, Barclay, Ferguson, Griswold, Veltheim) in collaboration with UAP workers…. hopefully using the brand giant robotic arm.

Clocked Out are ethically committed to social and environmental concerns and feel the act of listening – to each other and to the place where we live – can be a trigger for positive human/environmental custodianship. The “choose-your-own-adventure” nature of this work provides an exploratory audience-driven entry into new sonic ideas, new music and new concepts, thereby expanding audiences for experimental art.

We would love to present the most amazing Listening Museum possible and we know that every small donation is gratefully received and responsibly spent.
