Plastic is everywhere: in the devices we use, in our clothes, and increasingly in our bodies in the form of micro-plastics. We are more and more made to accept and deal with its omnipresence in the world, even as we attempt to curb our use of it.

Come walk, play with, listen to and make music with plastic and experience some kind of intimacy with this unusual material. 

Arrive outside the State Library before 2.30pm for a quick pre-walk briefing. Participants of all levels of ability welcome. Make sure to bring drinking water.

Attractor (Perth Festival) ft. Senyawa

  • The State Theatre Centre of WA (map)

Tickets $36: https://www.perthfestival.com.au/event/attractor

Surrender yourself to a trance-noise odyssey as Indonesia’s tour-de-force music duo Senyawa and Melbourne choreographic luminaries Lucy Guerin and Gideon Obarzanek join forces with two of Australia’s leading dance companies.

Senyawa reinterprets the Javanese tradition of entering trance through dance and music as a powerful, contemporary ritual. As the performance unfolds, their unusual fusion of hand-made electrified stringed instruments with operatic melodies and heavy metal vocals slowly builds to a euphoric pitch while the dancers are propelled into ecstatic physical abandonment. The result is a visceral, empathic experience for the audience – and you can take it even further.

Propan and Josten Myburgh at FAR Festival, Albany

As an extension to their annual festival of exploratory sound in Perth,Audible Edge 2018, Tone List are thrilled to bring the Norwegian vocal duo Propan to Albany for a concert of beautiful, drifting and otherworldly songs. Sounding like a mixture between Björk's complex electronic arrangements and the guttural shrieks of Maja Ratjke, their work is challenging and yet strangely inviting. Their first visit to Australia is a not-to-be missed opportunity to hear one of Norway's most exciting new duos.

Propan will be joined by leading young experimental artists Josten Myburgh from Perth presenting his own improvised work.

Sound of the Mountain (Elizabeth Millar & Craig Pedersen) join us once more from Montreal after an extensive stay in Asia, playing regularly and working alongside mavericks like Toshimaru Nakamura in Japan. Their duo explodes the micro-soundworlds of clarinet & trumpet into something unimaginably intense and detailed.

A new collision of vocal improvisation between Lana Rothnie & Priscilla Gardner opens sound worlds of haunting melodics and unexpected harmonies.
