100 Ways to Listen is a new project exploring the art and science of sound and documenting a decade of innovative music-making at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University (QCGU). There will be performances, interactive installations, and sound walks, see individual pages for details. All events are free of charge.
100 Ways to Listen events include:
Time Crystals (24 Friday March 4:45pm–5:35pm) This performance consists of 13 musical propositions, exploring ways to apply the ideas of perpetual motion, pattern and crystalline structures to musical forms, creating music that is minimalist at heart but rich and beautiful in execution. Music by Erik Griswold, performed by Clocked Out (prepared piano and percussion).
Sonic Environments – performance (Friday 24 March 7:30pm–8:45pm) Explore the ecological, social and cultural contexts of our sonic environments through immersive new music and sound art inspired by science, nature, changing climates and interdisciplinary research.
Sonic Playground (Saturday 25th March 10am–4pm) Music Technology @ QCGU fill Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University with interactive sound installations and hands-on sonic experiments.
Sonic Environments – installations (Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March 10am – 6pm) Explore augmented reality installations stretching throughout South Bank, interact with 3D sound environments in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and travel through the acoustic ecology of global ecosystems in virtual reality.
84 Pianos (Sunday 26th March 11:15 -11.45) Can you imagine the sound of 84 pianos, performing simultaneously? A new work by Erik Griswold that encourages the audience to navigate the Conservatorium as all the pianos are played simultaneously. A choose-your-own adventure performance piece.
