Indecipherable Fear: A Concert of Wordless reflections on Madness

Clunes Neighbourhood House Lunchroom

“One of the most effective ‘bedlam’ music records I’ve heard, and I’ve heard ‘em all.”

Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector

This concert will present three compositions in darkness: A Shut in Place (a collaboration with cellist Anthea Caddy), Glue and Return, and Love Songs. Each work reflects upon aspects of the lived experience of depression, anxiety, trauma, and what might be labelled mental illness, through the intensity of abstract sound.

The work Love Songs has been praised for its “innovative approach to form” (Fluid Radio 2018), “fearless conceptual framework” (Self-Titled Magazine 2018), and won the 2019 Green Room Award for Contemporary Sound Performance.

Bookings recommended as audience numbers are capped – email adensemass [at] gmail [dot] com or call Clunes Neighbourhood House on 5345 4078 to reserve your place.


People are required to walk up a few small steps to enter the building. If you need wheelchair access please get in touch beforehand and we will do what we can to organise a temporary ramp. Apologies for this inconvenience.

Please help to keep this event fragrance free for those with allergies and multiple chemical sensitivities by not wearing perfumes, colognes, essential oils or other fragrances. Thank you.

There will be some moments of loud, sudden sounds, but overall the volume is not that intense. Maximum sound levels will be approximately 94dB for short periods, though on average much lower. Bring earplugs if you are concerned or you’re welcome to cover your ears or leave at anytime.

During the concert the lights will be out, so you may wish to bring a torch in case you’d like to leave. There will also be an usher to help out.

If you have any other accessibility needs or questions about the event please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing adensemass@gmail.com or calling Clunes Neighbourhood House on 5345 4078.

And this perhaps goes without saying, but please wear a mask!

This event is supported by Clunes Neighbourhood House, Liquid Architecture, and the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which is provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria.
