Difficult Listening

Sundays 9pm-11pm

The second half of the 20th century saw significant innovation take place in the realm of avant-garde classical composition.

With composers such as John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Iannis Xenakis taking classical composition into realms that were previously unheard of, the foundations were laid for a tradition of experimental, exploratory and otherwise “difficult” musical forms to develop.

Difficult Listening takes in compositions from the legends of new music alongside works by lesser known composers and artists working in a range of styles that push the very barriers of sound creation and composition.

Including, but not limited to, styles such as modernism, early computer music, spectral music, noise, improvisation, drone and ambient music, Difficult Listening provides an important space for sounds that exist well outside of the realms of musical normality.

You can listen to live sets from the show on their Soundcloud.

Fresh from Camp Doogs, (a very tired but content) Annika Moses presents two hours of ambient experimental listening to carry on the vibes from the Deepwater Greenhouse stage curated by Deepwater duo Jack Burton and Rory Glacken (Tourist Kid). Imagine smoke rising from within a semi-circular prism, opaque white tent walls with a red glos, a field edged with yellow-leaved trees, and bassy musings drifting over a little tent city: population Doogs.
