Experimental Music Studio
As you walk through NewActon during you may find yourself surrounded by the sounds of amplified cactus, shifting icecaps, looped fretless guitars, prepared banjo and homemade iPad apps.
The Canberra Experimental Music Studio are taking over NewActon’s Western Courtyard. From 1-6pm the thirteen-person collective will be in residence between bushes and shrubs bringing out the sounds of their environment, and bringing in some of their own. Feel free to walk through, do a lap or stay a while and experience the living installation of live and pre-recorded electronics, field recordings and even some traditional instruments.
