Title: Class War

Composers: Joseph Tabua and Ian Stevenson

Performers and instrumentation: Joseph Tabua: Guitar and live processing Ian Stevenson: Computer

In Noam Chomsky’s 1995 speech entitled “Class War: The Attack On Working People” he quotes John Dewey in suggesting that “the government is the shadow cast by business over society”. In this semi-improvised performance, Tabua and Stevenson invoke the aural shadow of oppression cast over our everyday lives by conventional structures.

Biogs: Joseph Tabua is a composer and multi-instrumentalist currently enrolled in a doctorate of creative arts at Western Sydney University. Ian Stevenson is an academic and researcher in the School of Humanities and Communication Arts at Western Sydney University.
