Info

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.

(Why Listen?)

What do they want? What do they mean?
We cannot understand each other fully
We can never share everything.
But we can share time.

(Daniel Slåttnes)

Welcome to the Jungle offers a plant-based listening program, by artists from Australia and Scandinavia from backgrounds including acoustic ecology, installation/visual art, performance and experimental music. Listeners are embedded in purpose-built mini greenhouses as they listen to sounds made by plants, sounds made with plants, and sounds made with plants' listening pleasure in mind. For more on our thoughts on plant consciousness, hearing and voicing plants, and vegetal thinking-speaking-listening, you can read the curatorial essay here.
