Got something on your chest? Feel like having a whinge? Do you have a grievance to air, criticism to offer or an objection to make? We all do, and whether it's as big as reacting to today's current political climate or as trivial as protesting the lack of 24-hour cheese shops (when you want cheese, you want cheese), the Complaint Department wants to hear from you.

No, an official body hasn't been created to listen to the world's troubles — though, if you think one should be, you could always complain about that. Instead, the Complaint Department is an artwork being crafted by a six-musician collaboration calling themselves the Complaint Ensemble, who will turn a selection of your gripes into an orchestral performance.

The end product will be unveiled at this year's Underbelly Arts Festival in October; however the call for complaints is open now, so prepare to unleash your pet peeves via their online form. Whatever your worries, huge or tiny, your words could become a specially created composition — be it a commentary, a consolation or even an optimistic gesture.
