Sound Out is a professional development and mentoring platform for creative musicians working in jazz and improvised music who challenge normal categorisation. Sound Out will involve European and Australian partners and is devised for creative musicians (composer/performers/devisors) of any age working in jazz and improvised music. The platform is designed to enable ambitious artists to explore the sector and to take a significant move forward in their practice, to exercise their imagination to plan new projects, to establish mature working relationships with other artists as well as international producers, programmers and presenters of live music and to present that work in international contexts. It will demonstrate and encourage strategic thinking so that artistic imaginations and the creative ideas that stem from them can be realised in order to make a significant, international impact on their careers. Sound Out is produced by Martel Ollerenshaw (Arts & Parts Ltd/Australian Music Centre) and is an initiative of the Europe Jazz Network under the Artistic Exchange Platform. Sound Out is made possible because of the contributing partners: Pro Helvetia (Switzerland), Buma Cultuur (Netherlands), Australian Art Orchestra, Jazz from Scotland and the National Forum of Music/Jazztopad (Poland), and is organised in co-operation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of POLSKA 100, the international cultural programme accompanying the centenary of Poland regaining independence. Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of the multi-annual programme NIEPODLEGŁA 2017–2022.
Sound Out will involve a multi-disciplinary residency in Sokołowsko (Poland) in August 2019, ongoing mentoring from experienced operators in the sector and will result in a series of new creative projects that will be produced and performed in Europe and Australia.
