Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
Our program stages encounters and creates spaces for sonic experience, and critical reflection on sonority and systems of sonic affect. To do this, we host experiences at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, supporting artists to produce performances and concerts, exhibitions, talks, reading groups, workshops and recordings in art spaces, music venues and other sites.
Liquid Architecture is curatorially driven and our methodology embraces research, collaborations and imaginations. We want to echo beyond local conversations, problems, debates and questions, to reverberate across media and disciplines, and so to sound out new discourses about the audible world, and beyond.
We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first sovereign owners of this unceded country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and becoming.

聲音藝術與聆聽經驗 - 臺灣澳洲藝術交流論壇暨現場演出 Practicing Sound, Individually and Collectively Symposium
2, Sec. 1
Wuquan West Rd
1PM - 5:30PM
Sonic experiences – music, talks, conversations – function as important events in which to stage encounters for human collective experience. In addition to generating opportunities for individuals to gather in the formation of temporary communities, sound is also an area of focus for contemporary artists and artists’ collectives across the world, many of whom share radical goals.
Making and presenting experimental work in the space of sound and listening in Taiwan and involves different challenges and opportunities than in Australia. Australia and Taiwan both have a strong history of self-organisation in which collectivism figures as a response to specific local conditions. Perhaps the question of how to live as a creative practitioner under late capitalism creates another context of shared experience from which we can converse and listen. The demands of (self-)production in the neoliberal regimes of cultural expression of the international artworld generate significant forces with which artists must contend, whether working individually, collectively – or, as is most often the case, across both solo and collective practice.
What are some of the affordances of sound and listening for artists seeking collective and collaborative approaches to artistic production in Australia and Taiwan? Can a dialogue across sound cultures help us to listen differently, more deeply, with more sensitivity for nuances of voice, noise and silence? What rituals of collective listening might help us achieve this?
This symposium program stages a series of encounters between Taiwanese and Australian artists, critics, producers and musicians within the prestigious setting of the National Taiwan Museum of Art.
Presented by Liquid Architecture, Australia’s premiere sound art organisation, with keynote introductions by leading artist Hong-Kai Wang and curator-researcher Jeph Lo, the symposium will explore notions of individual and collective practice in sound and listening in the setting of intercultural dialogue and exchange.
The symposium will include keynote speeches, artist and collective interviews, and musical performances.

A political space is often opened where contradictions and complex relations occur. Rather than constructing a biography that illustrates, it seems more interesting to explore a political history of an artist's friendship with his collaborators and interlocutors, including myself.
