To welcome in the reawakening of our city, composer and artist Lawrence English has curated a series of durational site- and situation-specific sound happenings to celebrate this sense of deeper listening. Locals can treat their ears to a jam-packed roster of concerts including the following:

Wild Energy
This free multi-channel outdoor installation gives audiences access to the vibrations in the ultra and infra ranges emanating from sources which affect us fundamentally but which are beyond our audio perception.

Percussion at Dusk
Percussionist Vanessa Tomlinson unleashes the raw power of the tamtam, conjuring sonic drones and shimmering vibrations to unlock a secret universe of sound. The best part? This event is free.

MONO: Offsite
Perhaps best recognised for his role in legendary trio The Necks, Chris Abrahams will perform on The Old Museum organ, his first time performing an organ solo in Brisbane. Grab your tickets here.

Wallpaper Music
Featuring a new commission by Erik Griswold, Wallpaper Music part four, this performance for prepared piano uses the instrument in a radically ‘retuned’ way, multiplying it into a variety of muted, percussive, buzzing and gong-like sounds. Secure your tickets here.

Inner Cities
One of Australia’s most accomplished advocates of new music, Gabriella Smart, performs Alvin Curran’s epic five-hour solo piece, Inner Cities, in its entirety. Purchase your tickets here.

These events are part of Brisbane Festival. To learn more, visit the Brisbane Festival website.
