Presented in assocation with Arts House and Ensemble Offspring
The Secret Noise
Powerful and affronting.
Concept and Composition DAMIEN RICKETSON
There are sounds that exist on the other side of silence: music that has been deliberately kept from public ears. From forbidden airs to censored songs, retracted tunes and intimate odes intended for just one listener, the history of music is haunted by these secret compositions.
Ensemble Offspring invite you to embark on a multi-sensory exploration of sacrosanct sounds, charting your own path through a catacomb of music, performance and installation. Studded with hidden messages and aural mysteries, this descent into the underworld of music-making is a rare chance to uncover curiosities you were never supposed to know existed.
If anyone asks, you didn’t hear nothin’.
THE ART OF DISCOMFORT
Together in discussion with Emily Sexton, we’ll hear from artists Damien Ricketson (Ensemble Offspring), Jessica Thom (Touretteshero), D.A. Calf (The Guerilla Museum) and Scott Price (Back to Back Theatre) whose creative work veers close to boundaries—whether death, censorship, trust or the base conditions of our existence.
SAT 08 OCTOBER 1.30—2.30PM
