'Contact' combines audio, visual and structural elements to explore a culture of domestic violence that is cyclical, shameful and ignored.
“Kiah Gossner is a modern-day Mozart…" The Adelaide Show “The audience was buzzing through this performance and this didn’t stop at the conclusion..."
Multi-award-winning South Australian musician, producer and composer Kiah Gossner is one of the country’s most innovative and talented young artists. Mentored by Grammy Award-winning composer/producer Sam Dixon (Adele, Sia) and Miguel Atwood Ferguson (Flying Lotus, Thunder Cat). He is a highly sought after creator and collaborator who has toured the globe. His multi-artform performance piece Contact combines audio, visual and structural elements to explore the contrary forces of human emotions, journeying into a culture of domestic violence that is cyclical, shameful and ignored. "[Contact] is a showcase of virtuosity that would stand alone as a work of contemporary classical music without the extra layers of projected video and poetry.” – The Adelaide Show
