The Voice and Nothing More was a week-long festival exploring the voice as both medium and subject matter in contemporary arts practices. Both established and emerging artists worked with leading vocal performers and composers in an exploration of the voice outside language.

Invited performers included Mikhail Karikis, Lore Lixenberg and Juice, as well as a specially formed large-scale vocal ensemble. Performers, working with the artists and resident composer Claudia Molitor created new score-objects that culminated in a series of new performances. Artists included Martin Creed, Cornelia Parker, Estelle Thompson and Bruce Mclean.
