Kinds of Light is a new concert series for creative music at PS in Walyalup/Fremantle, curated by composer Josten Myburgh.

About this event

Presented by PS & Tone List and part of the Audible Edge Festival of Sound (

Kinds of Light is a new concert series for experimental music presented by Tone List and PS. The first concert in this new series features the double CD launch of two Western Australian artists on Haan’s distinctive Edition Wandelweiser Records.

Formed in the 1990s, Wandelweisier initially platformed music that was radically replete with silence, but has since followed the new developments of emerging musicians influenced by its diverse catalogue in a range of ways. The two pieces in this concert are soft, gentle and undulating, dense with detail and strange beauty.

Sage Pbbbt’s seven-piece Drones Ongsen Semble will perform two compositions from her Variations Without a Theme (Drones Ongs), imagining a chamber music ensemble whose sounds slowly transform like a living ecosystem. These open-ended compositions draw on the unique sound palettes cultivated by the individual musicians in the ensemble, who are drawn variously from the improvised, electronic and new music scenes.

Josten Myburgh, Jameson Feakes and Michael Pisaro-Liu’s new collaborative composition has been developed remotely over the past year. Taking recordings over several months in the same sites in Boorloo/Perth, Feakes & Myburgh produced audio tapestries which document subtle changes over hours of the day and the boundaries between seasons. The recordings were worked into a dense collage by Pisaro-Liu, whose compositional approach was informed by Song Dynasty scroll paintings: their simultaneous enormous scale and fine detail. Like the calligraphy which starkly adorns these scrolls, wistful melodies for saxophone & electric guitar frame the recordings, sitting strangely against the rich electronic backdrop.

To keep you warm we'll be serving mulled wine along with other drinks at the bar. Doors open at 7pm.

The Audible Edge Festival is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries.
