THE ROARING FORTIES is a temporary FM radio and online streaming of live concerts between France and Tasmania. 

Organised by Dr Julia Drouhin, the event is an audio conversation between the Structures Sonores Baschet (where she is mentored during a residency in Paris, France), and Dylan Sheridan’s exhibition Np423b: empty orchestra at Contemporary Art Tasmania.

During the two hour event audiences in Tasmania will be able to experience the sounds of Structures Sonores Baschet being played live, and broadcast from, Paris, by artists Rodolphe Alexis, DinahBird, Blenno Die Wurstbrucke Povera, Emile Boudghene, Angelique Buisson, Pierre-Yvan Blondet, Marco Dapic, Julia Drouhin, Frederic Fradet, Michal Mitro, Jean-Philippe Renoult, Lea Roger, Dexter Rosengrave and Valerie Vivancos, and performances at CAT by Dylan Sheridan, Emily Sheppard, tarab, and Sonnett.

This event is co-produced by the Structures Sonores Baschet Association, FAIR_PLAY and Contemporary Art Tasmania, with a technical support by Pi-node. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body during a three-months residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris, France.


Tasmanian performances: 7pm: Dylan Sheridan and Emily Sheppard; 7.20pm: Sonnett;
7.40pm: tarab

Paris group performance: 8 - 9pm
