Event Sound Offering II: Paul Young

Sound Offering II: Paul Young

20 July 2019
5–7pm

Join Brisbane-based sound artist and composer Paul Young for the second edition of Sound Offering, Boxcopy’s monthly program that invites sound artists and experimental musicians to produce an evening of listening.

Each performance is followed by a critical discussion with the artist as a way to generate discourse around contemporary sound practices. In this instalment, at the IMA, Paul Young will present his project Michael followed by a discussion of his practice.

Michael explores marginalised sound design practices; electronically processing field recordings and audio samples before appropriating minimalist, aleatoric, and improvisational compositional methods. Michael‘s debut album Care crafts brutal yet delicate soundscapes as an emotional response to the polemics, ideologies, and rhetoric of subliminal human experiences.

Sound Offering II is presented by Boxcopy in partnership with the IMA.
