Event description
Liquid Architecture presents Phew, Anthony Pateras and eRikm and Sage Pbbbt.

About this Event

Polyphonic Social is an annual Liquid Architecture project taking place at Melbourne’s Abbotsford Convent. It is framed by the proposition that artists practice polyphony in vastly expanded and experimental ways.

Polyphony is a state in which we hear many different voices, in their full texture, simultaneously. (Poly/many + phonos/voices). It is a sonic concept with much artistic and social potential; to make difference audible, ‘sound’ disobedience, choreograph dissonance, and explore the harmonies produced when we bring voices together (and apart) in shared space.

Polyphonic Social 2019 unfolds across three events, occupying the Convent’s historic, recently restored Magdalen Laundry with experimental sound, performance, and installation. While the program’s heart beats conceptually, its skeleton structure is a powerful multi speaker-stack sound system, which will be deployed by artists to articulate the cavernous space of the industrial building in uncanny, immersive, and unexpected ways.

Friday’s evening concert features legendary Japanese electro-punk auteur PHEW, whose warped vocal exclamations over pulsating electronics have been described as ‘Yoko Ono meets Suicide’ making her Australian debut more than 40 years after arriving on the Osaka scene as the singer in avant-noise band Aunt Sally. Australian composer, pianist and electronic musician ANTHONY PATERAS and French experimentalist ERIKM will collaborate on an analogue/digital set of ‘free concrète music inscribed firmly in the present’. And finally, SAGE PBBBT’s extra-normal vocal techniques will conjure chaos magick via a feminist, queer and trans praxis of air, lungs, vocal folds, lips and room. See Liquid Architecture for the full Polyphonic Social Program.

Presented by Liquid Architecture, Abbotsford Convent and 3RRR. Supported by City of Yarra, and System Sound.
