New Noise Collective: A fresh all-ages initiative from WAM
WAM is proud to announce New Noise Collective presented by Act-Belong-Commit; a brand-new initiative focused on nurturing and growing WA’s all-ages music scene.
Led by a small group of passionate music lovers (aged 16 – 20), the Collective was brought together by WAM to develop and implement practical ideas to strengthen WA’s youth music scene, including organising and promoting events that help connect young crowds with emerging local acts.
With the support and guidance of WAM’s Audience Development Officer Em Burrows, the New Noise Collective is proud to launch its first series of events, the Library Sessions.
The Library Sessions presented by New Noise Collective and WAM is a series of free all-ages live music performances held at the State Library of Western Australia. The first show kicks off 3:30pm – 5:30pm Saturday April 6th and features live performances from synth-pop artist Kopano and soulful young blues duo Farraday’s Cage (2018 winners of WAM Song of the Year Schools 14 & Under category).
Em said “the New Noise Collective is a proactive and connected group of young people who can utilise their own networks, communication styles, and ideas to engage other young people. It just makes sense! I’m really thrilled to be able to launch the initiative and work alongside New Noise Collective at WAM.”
New Noise Collective member and local musician Georgia Siciliano said of the initiative, “It’s a great opportunity for me to learn more about how the music industry works and to be able to have a say. It will be so good to give people under 18 the chance to see interesting and cool local sounds in different spaces and it’s great to have WAM’s support to be able to do it!”
