Decibel new music ensemble

Decibel is a new music ensemble made up of staff from the Composition and Music Technology stream at WAAPA, and is one of the major foci for research activity for the group. Decibel is devoted to the realisation of music where acoustic and electronic instruments are represented. In each Decibel performance,  electronic instruments are performed as unique ensemble members with their own sound quality and presence in the acoustic space. Decibel pioneer electronic score formats for new and existing works, incorporating mobile score formats and networked playback environments. Decibel encourage the creation  of new works for electro acoustic performance, the arrangement of electronic works for live performance, the performance of seminal international works and the representation of Australian and Western Australian artists, established and emerging. They seek to dissolve any division between sound art,  installation and music.
