Liam Mulligan (Festival Curator)
Liam Mulligan (b.1997) is a composer, film maker, visual artist, curator and academic based in Sydney, Australia. He is currently a postgraduate research student at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, investigating multi-disciplinary art. His music is substantially inspired by experimental electronic noise, with strong aleatoric elements, and he combines his practices in varying art forms to create multimodal compositions. Liam is known for creative work that is rhythmic, audiovisual, electroacoustic, cross-genre and contains elements of humour. His work has been featured in concerts and events at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Sydney’s City Recital Hall, Vivid Sydney, hiberNATION Festival and playlists curated by Making Waves.
Liam has had a hand in multiple large-scale projects in his young career. He co-founded new music collective Konzertprojekt and has worked with them as a composer, performer, sound engineer, social media content creator and curator. Notably, he was project manager for the 2019 ‘Light Qualities’ mini-festival as part of Vivid Sydney, consisting of four concerts across four weeks which showcased more than ten commissions and numerous emerging ensembles and soloists. In 2020 he is co-curator of the online hiberNATION Festival of the Lo-fi alongside Damian Barbeler and Elizabeth Jigalin, which gives performers, composers and audiences a platform to make and enjoy art in the comfort of their own homes. By the festival’s completion, over 50 artists will have contributed to over 100 live streams.
