Event Details

The Creativity Unlimited Festival will run over two days on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd Septermber 2016, and help launch the brand new, state of the art music precinct at Western Sydney University's Kingswood Campus. Schools and individuals are invited to attend on either or both days. Please register through the festival website.

The festival seeks to immerse the community in a broad ranging music making: from free improvisation and Indie rock, through to cutting edge contemporary classical sounds, and live-digital visuals and filmmaking. The objective is the creative exploration of energizing-silence—the energizing of silence, or near inaudibility, or visual stasis, with frenetic explosions of sonic and visual energy in such a way that the silence or stasis is imbued with the possibility of the emergence of a ‘something.’

This two-day festival includes four concerts featuring the best music performances of music staff and students at Western Sydney University. Hear their musical compositions and improvisations, and hear the work of Australia's leading edge musicians performing live in the Playhouse.
