SOUND ART ENSEMBLE
“Mainstream music was thrown out the window at the Valley Mill on Saturday. Talented young musicians from Geelong’s northern suburbs showcased some of their own creations in a sonic adventure titled THE DESERT.” GEELONG ADVERTISER
Since their inception the Scavengers have developed their own take on sound art and experimental music, recorded a number of CDs and performed alongside musicians from The Click Clack Project. Industrial, experimental and unpredictable, Noise Scavengers can be terrifying or very Zen. Noise Scavengers performed at Sonic Flock in the Melbourne Festival 2013 alongside a divrse range of professional musicians, and most recently remounted THE DESERT — one of their earlier soundscapes for Geelong After Dark 2015 in a public toilet. Having originated as a workshop program that sought to engage marginalised young people in contemporary sound arts practice, Noise Scavengers has now consolidated into an ensemble of emerging sound artists, launching their careers on to the international stage through JOLT.
