Since 2017, Tone List has presented an annual festival of exploratory music. Audible Edge brings high quality exploratory music from around the world to Perth and instigates collaborations between local and visiting artists.

The festival has been presented with the ongoing support of Tura New Music. In 2018, the Vancouver Arts Centre and Denmark Arts began supporting regional tours of the project. The 2019 instantiation was additionally supported by the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, and featured collaborations with ArtSource, Tuning Tides and Flock.

The 2020 edition of Audible Edge will happen in April, instead of January. Stay tuned for more info and line-up announcements in the coming months.

Audible Edge supplemented four days of performances with a rich workshop program including a two-day field recording and electroacoustic composition masterclass with France Jobin, a collaboration with Flock presenting Joshua Pether’s ‘Transmission’ practice, and improvisation workshops directed by Plant and Superimpose. The festival also featured unscheduled collaborative activities between the visiting artists and local musicians in Gidgegannup and Walpole.

“Audible Edge has retained much of its rough-and-ready community origins, whilst growing in scale and significance.” (4.5/5) Jonathan Marshall @ LimeLight Magazine
