Variable Resistance - Ten Hours of Sound from Australia
"Ten Hours of Sound from Australia, a selection of work by contemporary Australian sound artists. Organized by the multi-talented Australian musician and curator Philip Samartzis, Variable Resistance surveys a cross-section of contemporary trends in Australian sound art practice. To underscore the extensive nature of these explorations in sound, the exhibition features a ten-day 'listening room' presentation of prerecorded material as well as an evening of live performances by four of the leading experimental musicians in Australia at present: David Brown, Pimmon, Philip Samartzis and Darrin Verhagen. The companion CD consists of 11 tracks by Oren Ambarchi, Robbie Avenaim, Philip Samartzis, David Brown, Jim Knox (xonk), Thembi Soddell, Darrin Verhagen, Pimmon and Delire. The beautiful 24 page booklet that accompanies the CD contains program notes and extensive writing about Noise and the Australian contemporary music scene."
