Material Sound is a multi-form exhibition that draws together six art practitioners and collaborative groups, each creating an experience of sound within installations constructed from everyday  materials. Handmade instruments and electronics, recycled components, outmoded technologies,  fake technologies, imagined sounds, and silences are brought together to challenge the way we  think about materiality in a cumulative sound experience.

Material Sound
features work by artists Vicky Browne, Pia van Gelder, Caitlin Franzmann, Peter Blamey, Vincent & Vaughan O’Connor and Ross Manning, whose works and practices investigate sound and materials within art and performance. These artists are at the forefront of an international interest in the material qualities of sound and its modes of generation. In Australia, this interest particularly addresses the ecological consequences of the materials we so readily consume and discard.
