Exploratory innovative music performance as part of Vivid Sydney 2013.

The Seymour’s New Wave: Sound program is a two day intensive program featuring emerging and established music artists showcasing their most innovative work. A forum of leading music curators and creators asking the question “what’s hot?” kicks off the program and sets the tone for a weekend of sonic exploration, from electronic contemporary classical to poly-stylistic fusions and improvisations. Seymour’s intimate Sound Lounge will feature non-stop performances from midday to 11pm on Saturday 8th June, presenting acts such as The Noise, Infinity room, Frostbyte and Collarbones.

New waves of music emanate from here.
