LOSE YOURSELF IN MYTHIC AUDITORY LANDSCAPES

The Amplified Elephants share their latest work with you: an exploration of forest inspired sonic landscapes. The Boreal Forest; the Rain Forest; and more. A story known by The Elephants but not spoken in words to the audience unfolds through lustrous sonic brushstrokes.

The work runs for 50 mins and expands upon The Amplified Elephants’s collective focus on all things nature in their work. To perform the work 5 members from the group will perform on the first night and the other 5 members will perform on the second night.

THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS

A leading Australian sound art ensemble, the artists describe their sound as:

     Teagan Connor: “melodious”

     Alisa Chu: “relaxing and creative”

     Jay Euesden: “like getting on a train”

     Helen Kruljac: “it’s better”

     Daniel Munnery: “Glitch, drone stuff”

     Robyn McGrath: “Noisy”

     Kathryn Sutherland: “spaceships”

     Esther Tuddenham: “like dreaming”

     Natalie Walters: “cars revving up the engines”
