知音 sonicbridge Artist Announcements
Join us for the second event for 知音 sonicbridge, a Chinese/Australian contemporary music exchange initiated by Monash University and Asialink Arts.
In this iteration, Myf Warhurst will lead a conversation with the Australian and Chinese artists selected by Fred Leone and Nevin Domer talking music, inspirations, culture and community.
“To be able to give indigenous artists, grassroots artists but also emerging artists the skills and the industry contacts to navigate their path and their niche is really important so they won’t have to reinvent the wheel. The importance of this exchange goes far beyond one-off sort of workshop, it is creating international links by helping build the skills of the artists.”
– Fred Leone
“Building those cultural bridges and allowing artists from each country to interact with each other and connect with audiences in each country is important. This sort of exchange, allowing them to move not just vertically up in their own market but horizontally into other markets is important. Both will allow them to gain skills for their own music but also for inspirations in what’s happening in other communities.”
– Nevin Domer
