This Friday is the premiere of my new collaboration with Ngaio Fitzpatrick (ANU Climate Change Institute) at the Fitters’ Workshop, Kingston, ACT.
We start at 8:30pm, and the event is free and open to the public. It will also be live-streamed via facebook.com/canberraglassworks
Here is a sample of some of the audio for the show (the work is for three-channel tape, diffused through two far front speakers, two near front speakers, two rear speakers).
Thanks to Millie Watson for providing some of the piano samples, Charles Martin for the sound design, and Ben Drury and Craig Greening for tech support.
“Experience the world premiere of The Sixth Mass Extinction – A Dark Entertainment – a stunning glass performance and shattering experience.
Ngaio Fitzpatrick was a recipient of an ANU Vice Chancellors Artists Fellowship (VCCAFS) working in partnership with the ANU Climate Change Institute in 2016. With a background in environmentally sustainable architecture and building informing her arts practice, she is particularly interested in ways in which art can be used to communicate the science of climate change in a Post-Truth world. Her practice is multi-disciplinary and encompasses performance, architectural interventions, site specific installations, video, industrial glass and most recently includes collaborative experimental music interactions in real time.
In collaboration with composer Alexander Hunter and sound designer Charles Martin.”
