Clocked Out returns to the bush property of Bruce and Jocelyn Wolfe, on the Granite Belt, for their annual Easter Sunday sonic adventure combining music, architecture and environment.

The event culminates in a performance of the sixteen-piano-powered Piano Mill.
This event features:

- Flute, trombone, percussion, movement and voice performances on the picturesque bush stages, created by Jan Baker-Finch, Kristin Berardi, Jodie Rottle, Caleb Colledge, Chloe Kim, Brodie Mcallister, Vanessa Tomlinson & more.
- Multi-media installations by Bloom Collective (including Renata Buziak and Vicki Kelleher), Stephen Adams, John Ferguson, and Paul Bardini.

"A Piano Mill is a hybrid building and musical instrument, designed and purpose-built to house sixteen reclaimed pianos in a tower structure. Constructed in Northern New South Wales, Australia, it was designed by architect Bruce Wolfe specifically for composer Erik Griswold in 2016" (www.wikipedia.com).
The Piano Mill won the 2018 World Architecture Festival Award in the category of Cultural Buildings. In 2017, the Piano Mill received the APRA AMCOS Award for Excellence in Experimental Music, a State Award for Small Project Architecture in the Queensland Architecture Awards, and a Commendation for Small Project Architecture in the National Architecture Awards.
This is the fourth installment of Easter at The Piano Mill, and it promises to be yet another intriguing and surprising musical adventure.
