MELBOURNE, October, 2012 – MONOLITHICA is a series of eight concerts designed to bring
sound, sculpture and interability sound artists together in one platform over two weeks in
November. Taking place at Federation Square in both the outdoor plaza as well as concerts in
BMW Edge, this series is a major contribution to the international movement for large scale
interabilities sound arts events.

The feature of the project are five stiking monolithic speaker towers purposely built for
MONOLITHICA placed in Federation Square’s main outdoor plaza much like Stone Henge. The
outdoor concerts take inspiration from daily occurances capturing people ‘at work’, the ambient
sunsetting and bird calls. These concerts will feature The Amplified Elephants, The Noise
Scavengers as well as members of BOLT ensemble.

James Hullick says, “MONOLITHICA is a critical showcase of what we aim to do – bring together
artists of a variety of abilities together in one professional platform. The Amplified Elephants are a centre piece of the events. And they are full of drive and on fire after their recent tour to Japan, and earlier shows this year in Melbourne. It’s great to watch them flower as an ensemble.”

Accompanying the outdoor activities will be four concerts at BMW Edge, featuring The Click Clack Project Artistic Director and composer James Hullick, The Amplified Elephants playing alongside BOLT ensemble; Noriko Tadano and Adam Simmons presenting a concert of traditional Japanese songs alongside original compositions and improvisations; and concluding the events will be the Arcko String Orchestra and Soloists.

The Click Clack Project Inc. is designed to stream sonic artists from its community development
workshops and creative development projects into professional Australian and international
touring, recording and concert outcomes. Highly trained and technically gifted musicians and
sound makers work alongside and on equal footing with those who are still developing their
