Beyond the Bounds: 30 Years of Difficult Listening

RTRFM and TURA NEW MUSIC BRING YOU BEYOND THE BOUNDS: 30 YEARS OF DIFFICULT LISTENING.

RTRFM is proud to celebrate 30 Years of Difficult Listening, RTRFM’s experimental and boundary pushing radio show which has been bringing you the weird and wonderful for 30 years. Currently on a Sunday evening Difficult Listening delves into the world of contemporary classical, experimental, ambient and weirdly wonderful music.

The station has teamed with Tura New Music to bring your Beyond the Bounds as we celebrate 30 Years of boundary pushing radio. As part of Tura’s Soup Nights, join us at The Sewing Room on Tuesday September 10 from 7pm.

Curated by current presenter Eduardo Cossio, Beyond the Bounds will bring together a collection of musicians from across the difficult spectrum. He tells us a little about the thoughts on the line up below.

The line-ups feature established artists collaborating with a new generation of experimental musicians. In keeping with the spirit of the program, which plays a pivotal role in promoting and documenting the local scene, the one-off performances provide a snapshot of the many approaches taken over the years by Perth sound-explorers.

Meg Travers’ research on the Trautonium has seen her build prototypes that emulate the tones of this early type of syntheziser. Lindsay Vickery has been a key member of the new music community as an educator and composer of multi-media works. Jonathan Mustard and Nathan Thompson’s practice sits at the intersection of science, programming, and sound-installation; while the work of Decibel New Music Ensemble member, Stuart James, uses digital synthesis in bold and sensitive ways. They will be joined a group of energized musicians, all of whom have put releases in recent years.”

Join us to celebrate one of RTRFM’s and Australia’s longest running radio programs.
