fabulous fabulous new site launched ... HER NOISE

Launch of the new website HER NOISE
Her Noise Archive is a resource of collected materials investigating music and sound histories in relation to gender, bringing together a wide network of women artists who use sound as a medium.  
Whilst Her Noise exists as a physical archive, key elements of the original project, including video interviews with a number of artists and musicians, are available on this site, as well as documentation of more recent events and responses including  'Her Noise: `feminisms and the Sonic' at Tate Modern and 'Sound:Gender:Feminism:Activism' at LCC earlier in 2012.
The site will also see a series of  guest ‘curations’ over the course of the next few years, whereby people have been asked to make selections from and for the archive, in an effort to keep the archive alive.
The first curations that are available on the site are from:
Ain Bailey - sound artist
Nina Power - philosopher, writer and broadcaster
Tara Rodgers - musician, composer and feminist technology scholar

This is a wonderful resource and inspiration for women working in sound/noise!!!!



EVENT: BOXCOPY and GIRRLSOUND presents Michelle Xen
Generous Fields | Objects in the Dark
Sunday 25 November 3pm at Boxcopy
This work by Michelle Xen is part of a new series of video, performance and sound, in which sonic-visual fields are created and transformed over time. Using light, video, live vocals and breath, a series of video monochromes evolve over the course of the performance from the movements and sounds in the room.

Michelle Xen is a Brisbane-based installation and video artist and electronic musician. She is a graduate of the Queensland College of Art and was awarded a Masters of Art in Research in interdisciplinary practice at QUT. Michelle's work uses performance video, installation, costume and painting to draw comparisons between the sometimes oppositional worlds of contemporary art practice and pop music. Michelle has exhibited and performed extensively throughout Australia and Japan.

Level 1, Watson Brothers Building, 129 Margaret Street, Brisbane QLD 4000
