Social Interiors was formed in 1984 primarily as a studio and recording project. Since 1993 it has become an intersecting space for three core artists Rik Rue, Shane Fahey and Julian Knowles.

The group is dedicated to uncovering some of the unique character inherent in Australia's aural landscape. Meticulous editing and treatment form the basis of their sound compositions. The works are essentially about blurring the distinctions between sound and sight/site via careful manipulation of sonic materials to create phantom and perhaps impossible acoustic spaces.

The group's live performances explore the creative possibilities of surround audio with real time performance through complex multichannel sound projection systems. Influenced by musique concrete, media cut-up, film sound, location sound, rock music production techniques and acoustic measurement tests, the group's eclectic sound materials and compositional practices have attracted wide critical acclaim.

Apart from their work in experimental music and the audio arts, the members of Social Interiors have collectively and individually been involved in record production, engineering and re-mixing.
