sounding together: Koorda with Jim Denley


Presented by Tone List sounding together offers a chance to be immersed in listening, playing, making and exploring as a group over a long weekend in regional Western Australia. Joined by Sydney-based artist Jim Denley, we will spend time together, creating new art and music, starting collaborations, and allowing the unexpected to happen.

This weekend has no fixed agenda and no expected outcomes. See where your ears lead you in collaboration with others. Gentle facilitation will be offered by Jim in the form of sound-walks and workshops, but the overall vision of the week is towards dissolving hierarchies, pursuing curiosities and working together as friends. Artists of all walks of life and disciplines are welcome to attend.

WHERE: This first instantiation of the project is hosted in Koorda, just under three hours away from Perth. The residency building is an old buffalo lodge (ca. 1956) which has been transformed into a space with bathrooms, a kitchen, multiple bedrooms and a large living space. The station is walking distance from shops, museums and more. There is no way to easily get from Perth to Koorda on public transport, but we can help sort out carpooling.

WHEN: Formally commencing after midday November 23 (Friday), departing afternoon of November 26 (Monday). Early arrivals on the evening of November 22 (Thursday) are welcome. Please also ask us about shorter-term stays if you can't stay the whole time.

COST: $160, which includes food and accommodation costs. Travel costs not included, but we can help organise carpooling. Reduced prices may be available for shorter stays. If your application is accepted, you'll be asked to make a $50 deposit (non-refundable) to confirm your spot.

Applications close September 21, applicants must be aged 18 or over.
