About Clocked Out|
Clocked Out create and produce cutting edge music, interarts, and intercultural events that extend experimental traditions in engaging and thought provoking ways. They use music as a vehicle to explore central cultural issues such as environmentalism, multi-culturalism, and interactions of science and music. The creative outlet of Vanessa Tomlinson and Erik Griswold, Clocked Out's diverse output includes original music for percussion and piano, a variety of artistic collaborations, concert series, tours, and festivals.
Based in Melbourne and Brisbane over the past 17 years, their activities have been incredibly wide ranging, and have included: original music for percussion, found objects, prepared piano and toy instruments; site-specific events highlighting music and environment; ongoing collaborations with musicians from Sichuan province; projects highlighting links between science, architecture and music; performances and recontextualizations of historical avant garde works; commissioning and presenting works by innovative composers; collaborating and presenting leading Australian and International artists and Ensembles; national and international tours.
Clocked Out has received the APRA / AMCOS Award for "Outstanding Contribution by an organization" and two Green Room Awards, as well as grants from the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Queensland, Asia Link Foundation and Arts Victoria. They are currently Ensemble in Residence at Queensland Conservatorium.
