CACOPHONY WOLVES

Forged in the suburbs of Northern Geelong, Noise Scavengers began as a youth sound art project, and have emerged as an ensemble of young sound artists. CACOPHONY WOLVES has evolved out of a deeper and frank dialogue with young feminist and postgraduate psychology student, Sarah Smith, who hails from Lara. The uncompromising result includes Sarah’s vocalized insights on young womanhood that have helped the young men of the Scavengers comprehend gender politics through the furnace of art. The physical push that is CACOPHONY WOLVES has been created in collaboration with Dave Brown – one of Australia’s recalcitrant and celebrated guitarists – and includes James Hullick performing with the Noise Scavengers.

Duration: 30 mins or 60 mins
