What is Music 2009


What Is Music? is Australia's longest-running and prestigious experimental music festival.

It began in Sydney in 1994 as a platform to expose unusual contemporary musical forms that were unknown to the general public, and has continued that tradition throughout the years of its expansion, presenting a cutting-edge and spectacular snapshot of modern sound culture.

This year will see further exploration of the world of large-scale new instrument design, as well as the sonic extremes it is known so well for.

This year's lineup features American laptop noise brutalist John Wiese, Polish sound sculptors and improvisers Robert Piotrowicz and Anna Zaradny, local avant legends Jon Rose, Clayton Thomas, Jim Denley, Clare Cooper and Chris Abrahams. Additionally, there will be three films accompanied by Brendan Walls, David Shea and the duo of Kim Gok and Kim Sun from Korea, as well as a return from the spectacular instrument builder Miles van Dorssen.
