      Event Details

      Polyphonic Social is an annual Liquid Architecture project taking place at Melbourne’s Abbotsford Convent. It is framed by the proposition that artists practice polyphony in vastly expanded and experimental ways.

      Polyphony is a state in which we hear many different voices, in their full texture, simultaneously. (Poly/many + phonos/voices). It is a sonic concept with much artistic and social potential; to make difference audible, ‘sound’ disobedience, choreograph dissonance, and explore the harmonies produced when we bring voices together (and apart) in shared space.

      Polyphonic Social 2019 unfolds across two events, occupying the Convent’s historic, recently restored Magdalen Laundry with experimental sound, performance, and installation. At the heart of the program is a powerful eight speaker sound system, deployed by artists to articulate the cavernous acoustic space of the building in uncanny, immersive, and unexpected ways.

      Artists: Bryan Phillips AKA Galambo Lucreccia Quintanilla Nina Buchanan Sage Pbbbt Sarah crowEST Anthony Pateras eRikm Natasha Tontey Phew Zou Zhao
