Sisters Akousmatica is the collaborative, expanded radio project of Julia Drouhin and Phillipa (Pip) Stafford – exploring the radical possibilities of transmission since 2016. Sisters Akousmatica weave projects in, around, with and for radio. Their work is concerned with collective, feminist radio practices and auditory-spatial exploration. As a vehicle for on-going research and discrete projects, Sisters Akousmatica is deeply collaborative and they have worked with artists and communities in lutruwita/Tasmania, mainland Australia and worldwide. They are on-going artists in residence and members of the Radio and Electronics Association of Southern Tasmania (REAST) and hold their Foundation Amateur Radio Licenses, operating as VK7SEA (Stafford) VK7HAG (Drouhin). Together they have been the recipients of multiple grants and prizes, including: the CBAA Excellence in Music Programming award at the 2017 Community Broadcasting Association of Australia Conference (with 3CR community radio), Arts Tasmania, the Australia Council for the Arts, and the Women in Sound, Women on Sound award for Goldsmiths, University of London.
