house concert at the You Are Here Festival

Students and faculty from the ANU Experimental Music Studio are excited to be a part of the You Are Here Festival for the second time (15-16 April). This year we’re giving a house concert (details below), and participating in a Musicircus-style event in Verity Lane (more details soon).

“The ANU Experimental Music Studio want to play your living room. They will bring with them an arsenal of bows, sticks, mallets, e-bows, vibrators, contact microphones and other devises for making household objects (some ordinary, some extraordinary) move. Through excitation, amplification and observation the mundane becomes beautiful.”

‘apocalyptic and integrated’ at the Art, Not Apart Festival

I’m currently working on field recordings, videos and some live acoustic and electroacoustic material for an upcoming performance at the Art, Not Apart Festival.
The ANU Experimental Music Studio and Andromeda is Coming… will be invading the Kendall Lane Theatre in New Acton from 4-7pm on 19 March (free event).
“Swing through this 3-hour collaborative multimedia work involving ANU staff and students. Taking as a starting point the writings of semiotician Umberto Eco, ‘apocalyptic and integrated‘ focuses on the issues involved in the artist’s engagement with mass media and mass culture.
Over the course of the performance events will overlap and fade in and out of each other, engaging with concepts of space, time and memory. Each event will utilise a different instrumentation and performance practice, resulting in a subtly shifting aesthetic environment. There’s some seriously talented musicians in this group. And it’ll look and sound pretty great in our little theatre.”
