The 4th year of the annual SoundOut festival and in 2013 we will bring to you another bristling sound event to question your ears, allude to the unknown, see within the fabric of sound, and take the threads and unravel them. This is the Free Improvisational, Free Jazz and Experimental Music festival to replenish your ears and mind!

With Artists from Australia, Austria/UK, Brazil/Switzerland, Canada/Quebec and Germany that will combine, mix, cross-fertilize, and move sound mountains to uplift inquiring ears.

This coming years festival sees extraordinary artists such as the brilliant violinist Jon Rose shift the ground on sound perception, taking our ears unknown realms, while the astounding Magda Mayas/ Tony Buck duo dissect the inner working of piano and drum forging them anew; The phenomenal free improvisation Abaetetuba Collective from Brazil/Switzerland, and the Barcode Quartet from Austria/UK will redefine musical/sound boundaries; while astonishing young pianist Hermione Johnson (NZ) and fire brand free saxophonist Jeff Henderson (NZ) along with experimental film maker Louise Curham reinterprets what is possible for sound and vision collaborations;  while the brilliant electronic improvisers the Stasis Duo coaxes virtuosity from empty samplers creating complex webs of psycho-acoustic dynamics. Bassist Mike Majkowski and drummer James Waples will explore the fissures between the invented and polyphonic, and Alison Plevey/ Reuben Ingalls explores embodied stone sounds, while Australian firebrands of the new Andrew Fedorovitch, John Porter, Luke Keenan-Brown, Michael Norris, Rhys Butler, Richard Johnson and guests, will bring their own special unique blend of sound exploration to illuminate these collaborative futures

The 2013 group of Artists has never gathered before and never will again in the same configuration, but they are all involved in an international dialogue that is essential to the unfolding of new music structures and what it means to be human in the 21st Century. Come, see and hear the new music evolve.

The State of Styria, the Austrian Embassy and Government proudly supports artists from the Barcode Quartet. Alison Blunt is partly supported in her tour by the British Council of New Zealand.  The Brazilian Government proudly support the Abaetetuba Collective and the Arts Council of New Zealand support Hermione Johnson.

SoundOut 2013 is very grateful for the continued support from the ACT Government, as well as the BMA magazines, iblink Productions and SoundOut and the volunteers that help with the festival. Unfortunately at this late stage Adelina Larson has had to cancel her appearance and we welcome Alison Plevey as her replacement. Charity Chan due to lack of communication and personal circumstances could not make it.
