Sonorous IX: Joel Ma & Jannah Quill

Go beyond a traditional listening experience into an expanded universe of octaphonic sound.

Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS) presents the ninth edition of Sonorous – a series of octaphonic, commissioned concerts. Founded by Robin Fox and Byron J Scullin, MESS is dedicated to the creation of electronic sound and music. Representing one of the most unique, eclectic, and historically significant collections of electronic instruments worldwide, the ever-growing MESS collection is made available to creatives and the broader public to learn, play, and record with hundreds of electronic instruments at their fingertips.

About the concert

A liberation of sonics from the shackles of stereo, Sonorous welcomes listeners to go beyond a traditional listening experience into an expanded universe of sound. For its ninth instalment, MESS invites acclaimed artists Joel Ma and Jannah Quill to engage with the limitless possibilities of the MESS collection.

Commissioned to create an immersive multichannel electroacoustic performance, these two extraordinary artists push their work in new directions through the experimentation and manipulation of spatial sound. Join us as they demonstrate the unrealised potential of sound and diffuse their brand-new works in glorious, octaphonic surrounds in the acoustically rich Primrose Potter Salon.
