Two nights of intense sound to cleanse the palate.

Long-running experimental Brisbane record label Room40 presents Open Frame this June at Carriagworks. Featuring two nights of sound and “transcendent” music, Open Frame brings a selection of heavyweights of the experimental music and composition worlds to Sydney under the theme of “intensity”.

Artists on the program include avant-garde composer William Basinski and experimental composer and vocalist Charlemagne Palestine, both from New York; Australian artist Cat Hope’s presentation of a new Occam performance from legendary French electronic composer Éliane Radigue, commissioned specially by Carriageworks; and Scottish musician Drew McDowall presenting Time Machines, the 1998 album by his former and influential band, Coil.

“Each artist is a study of intensities,” says curator Lawrence English of the line-up in a press release. “This is music that reaches deep inside us and activates a sense of being that is beyond the moment of encounter. A chance for deep and lingering sonic affect.”
