Found Sound: The Experimental Instrument Project is a series of musical and sound art events featuring experimental instruments designed and built by Australian artists and musicians.
Each event takes the form of an improvised collaboration between at least two participants who do not usually perform together. All sounds are to be generated by hand-made and/or found elements that can be welded, wired, stuck together, collaged or otherwise assembled into “playable” forms, including junk objects, springs, bicycle wheels, bits and bobs, kitchen gadgetry, string, circuit boards, bells, rubber bands, plants, car parts and custom-made music machines.
Found Sound is part of Found Sound 2009, a six month program of performances held at Guildford Lane Gallery and Tape Projects Space, Melbourne, January-June 2009, and is curated by Amelia Douglas [Barikin] and Albert Mishriki.
Featuring work by Snawklor, David Nelson (Slave Pianos), Joe Talia, Dale Gorfinkel, Ross Manning, Rod Cooper, Pia Van Gelder, Ros Bandt, Albert Mishriki, Benjamin Kolaitis, Dylan Martorell and James Hullick.
