The Sound Playground -  an exhibition and performance series featuring experimental instruments, sound sculptures and sonic installations that span the borders of craft and sound. The Sound Playground features new commissioned works by Ros Bandt & Albert Mishriki, Rod Cooper, Emma Lashmar and Rowan McNaught.

Co-curated by Amelia Douglas and Nella Themelios. Presented by Bus Projects, Craft Victoria and fortyfivedownstairs for Liquid Architecture Festival of Sound Arts July 2010.

Rod Cooper presents a new series of ‘sonic portraits’ in which items of clothing cast in concrete become the armature for the aural conjuring of well known personalities in the Australian sound scene. Emma Lashmar offers an exquisite glass installation designed to be bowed and played percussively. Ros Bandt and Albert Mishriki’s original music-boxes place the focus on disguise and gesture in the generation of sound, whilst Rowan McNaught’s interactive Manifon offers a new take on an ancient instrument.
