Soundstream is committed to shaping Australian culture through new music via ground-breaking programming, composer collaborations, the commissioning of new works, education and massed community events. Established in 1994 in Adelaide by Artistic Director Gabriella Smart, Soundstream comprises some of Australia’s leading new music practitioners.
Soundstream presents a 2017 program reflecting the diversity of new music. Either/Or is a unique concert of premieres by pre-eminent composers from Australia and Canada with special guest soprano Allison Bell (Aust/Berlin). Either/Or intriguingly blends language and an eclectic mix of pop, jazz and avante-garde influences with film and philosophical text. Cutting edge, electro/acoustic works feature alongside video imagery of classic Kubrick films and graphic notation on ipad.
The ‘Blue Touch’ improvisation series continues in The Studio and a special event highlighting sound art, featuring artists Lawrence English and Christian Haines, will be staged later in 2017.
