THE ROARING FORTIES is a temporary FM radio and an online broadcast of live concerts between France and Tasmania.
Organized by Julia Drouhin, the event is an audio conversation between Les Structures Sonores Baschet (where it is framed during a residency in Paris, France), and the exhibition of Dylan Sheridan Np423b : empty orchestra at Contemporary Art Tasmania.
During the two-hour event, Tasmanian audiences will be able to hear the sounds of Structures Sonores Baschet played live and broadcast from Paris by artists Rodolphe Alexis, DinahBird, Blenno Die Wurstbrucke Povera and Emile Boudghene, Angelique Buisson, Pierre-Yvan Blondet, Marco Dapic, Julia Drouhin, Frederic Fradet, Michal Mitro, Jean-Philippe Renoult, Lea Roger, Dexter Rosengrave and Valerie Vivancos, and CAT performances by Dylan Sheridan, Emily Sheppard, Tarab and Sonnett.
This event is co-produced by the Association Structures Sonores Baschet, FAIR_PLAY and Contemporary Art Tasmania, with the technical support of Pi-node. This project was supported by the Australian government through its funding and arts council, the Australia Council, during a three-month residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, France.
Julia Drouhin (Australia) is in residence at the Cité internationale des arts through the Australian Arts Council program.
