"What is Music? Festival Club"

Opening: 15 February, 6-8pm
Dates: 15-21 February 2004

"What is Music was founded by Oren Ambarchi and Robbie Avenaim in 1994 and can rightly lay claim to significantly raising the profile of and expanding the audience for experimental music in Australia. Early festivals had a reputation for exploring the wild and anarchic, often involving rock, punk and noise cross-overs, outsider artists and performance art all thrown in with the more serious end of improvisation."

Real Time reviews:

"What Is Music? 2004 has also expanded to include some free events as part of the Melbourne program. From Monday 16 to Friday 20 at the Kaliede Theatre there’ll be a cinema series co-presented with Transmit Collective and RMIT Union Arts that includes Fassbinder’s Satin’s Brew, Sun City Girls’ Cloaven Theatre and Take Me By The Throat’s Satan Rides the Media. Miles van Dorssen and Nick Wishart’s soundscultpture CELL—a shipping container fitted with MIDI-activated pneumatic devices—will be located in the City Square. And for the first time there will be a festival club for late night revellings in Sydney at the Frequency Lab, and in Melbourne at BUS Gallery which will also feature a photographic and video exhibition curated by Lisa Campbell-Smith and Robbie Avenaim."
