Five musicians are set to elevate their careers and amplify their sound through the NSW Government’s inaugural Soundlab Residency Program in partnership with Arup.

The new SoundLab residency program will provide a distinctive platform and upskilling opportunity for the NSW-based musicians and sound artists.

The SoundLab Residency Program, made possible through a partnership between Create NSW and Arup, is an unmatched opportunity for NSW artists to experiment, design and create in the high-end SoundLab facility at Arup.

This unique program is set to unleash the talent and ambition of its inaugural residents, who will use the residency to design new work, with sound and music reflecting the talent, experiences, and people that make up NSW.

The five recipients are sound-artist Alexandra Spence; multi-disciplinary artist, writer, and experimental musician Dale Collier; composer, musician, vocalist, and creative technologist Freya Berkhout; and duo Flâneurs – the sound art project of brothers Ernest Aaron and Andrew Aaron. More details about the recipients are here.

As part of the residency each recipient will receive $2,500 in support and access to Arup’s high-end technical space to make music and sound. The program will involve four-week residencies, which guarantee successful applicants with access to the SoundLab for at least 10 hours per week.
