Sonorous welcomes both the listener and performer to experience an expanded and inspiring universe of sound. Presenting synthesis as it should be heard – spatially manipulated, diffused and controlled across multiple channels, untethered to the limitations of stereo.

Considering space as a fundamental compositional element, artists are commissioned to create an immersive electroacoustic performance, capturing the unrealised and extra-human potential of sound. During this process, they will work closely with the MESS Collection, having access to one of the most eclectic and historically significant collections of electronic instruments in the world. This opportunity to engage difficult to access instruments and be supported in the creation of long form work is unique in Australia and very rare worldwide.
