Sisters Akousmatica, Radio and Electronics Association of Southern Tasmania, 2018


A collaborative and expanded radio project of Julia Drouhin and Phillipa Stafford, Sisters Akousmatica are inspired by porous possibilities of transmission and the embodiment of radio akousmatic nature: a voice cut from the source. They are concerned with collective radio practices, auditory-spatial exploration and the potential of emergent art forms to support socio-cultural and gender minorities in the field of sound arts.

After a short performance, Pip and Julia will talk about their individual practices and how they collaborate

Sisters Akousmatica produced large-scale public transmission projects, a retreat for women and non-binary artists, workshops and commissions with organisations such as Castlemaine State Festival, Mona Foma, Liquid Architecture, Next Wave Festival, Junction festival, Unconformity, Hobiennale, The Channel, Signal, Radiophrenia, ACCA, Vitalstatistix (Adhocracy 2017), RealTime, Doing Feminism/Sharing the world, supported by Australia Council for the Arts and Arts Tasmania. Sisters Akousmatica and 3CR were awarded the CBAA Excellence in Music Programming award at the 2017 Community Broadcasting Association of Australia Conference.
