SoundOut #12 Festival of Exploratory Music and Film

2021 marks the 12th year of the annual SoundOut festival, and we brought to you the continuation of the incredible explorative sonic arts event. This Experimental Music festival uplifts tired ears, explores the unknown, sees within the fabric of sound, unravels the threads of normative musical praxis, and questions sonic hegemonies. Usually we host an International and interstate group of artists, however due to C19 restrictions and funding challenges we hosted artists from the Southeast region this year.

The festival included Artists such as Brian McNamara, Charles Martin, Chayla Ueckert-Smith, Ethan McAlister, Jackson Weibe, Louise Curham, Miroslav Bukovsky, Monika Brooks, Old Media Orchestra [LC, RJ, TMB +], Paul Duchesne, Pip Gazard, Reuben Ingalls, Rhys Butler , Richard Johnson, Sally Golding, Siena Mitchell, Tom Fell, Tracy M Benson. We have also included experimental film, video and sound from the Old Media Orchestra using mostly old and “out-of-date media”. It included some of the artists mentioned above: Louise Curham, Tracy M Benson, and on reel to reel tapes/radio transmitters etc Richard Johnson …+ other artists.

It was held over the Saturday 6th – Sunday 7th February 2021 at the ANU Drill Hall Gallery with approximately 8 hrs of music spread over the 2 days; with 4 sessions of music comprising of numerous sets.

The Drill Hall Gallery acknowledges the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples, the traditional custodians of the Canberra region, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.
