‘This year Open Frame meditates on states of sonic intensity.  Each artist is a study of intensities; the intense beauty of William Basinski, the intense transcendence of Charlemagne Palestine, the intense performance approaches of Pan Daijing, the intense focus of Eliane Radigue’s compositions, the list goes on and on. This is music that reaches deep inside us and activates a sense of being which is beyond the moment of encounter. A chance for deep and lingering sonic affect.’
– Lawrence English, Curator

THE ARTISTS - THU 28 JUN

Eliane Radigue
Now aged 86, Eliane Radigue is arguably France’s most important electronic music composer. Radigue’s twenty forth composition, Occam XXIV, is Open Frame’s first world premiere and a commission by Carriageworks that will be performed by leading Australian composer and musician Cat Hope.

Charlemagne Palestine
Charlemagne Palestine presents his only Australian piano performance in 2018 at Open Frame. An iconoclast maestro, his sound compositions have garnered a devoted following since the 1960s and his Strumming Music is now considered one of the most important ‘maximal minimal’ works of the 20th century.

The Speaker
The Speaker is a collaborative project between Pan Daijing, Valerio Tricoli and Werner Dafeldecker. Described as a form of aural theatre, it is a composition for one vocalist, six loudspeakers and live electronics.
