Legends of Queensland’s underground music scenes descend on Metro Arts.
SONIC STATE brings together nationally significant musicians who have each been leaders in their field, setting up spaces and contexts for audiences to connect to the latest work by experimental music makers. Lawrence English, Nicola Morton, Andrew Gibbs and Chris Perren, along with invited guests, and curated by sound artist Luke Jaaniste, invigorate multiple spaces across Metro Arts with powerful sounds and incredible visuals.
A celebration of spatial and sonic experimental music-making in Brisbane, SONIC STATE is an all-ages event that includes music performances, free workshops, artist talks and an opening night celebration.
Metro Arts will be transformed with electronica, post-rock, contemporary classical, sound art installation and synths – a rich field of sound spilling from the venue.
