Sonic art gig... but there's more
Are you looking for something a bit different in the Lismore music scene? Well, this gig may be just the thing.
There’s a special one-off event happening at Lismore Regional Gallery this Saturday night, April 24, from 6-7.30pm. It’s called Live Performances: Sonic Art and Experimental Music.
This night of experimental and sonic art features the works of three sound artists: Ross Manning, Grayson Cooke and Muttboy.
Ross Manning is a Brisbane-based artist who works with sound and light. He’ll work with all manner of sound-making machines – some acoustic, some electronic, some unclassified.
Grayson Cooke will perform UDU, a live audio-visual performance using audio-reaction to produce transformations in abstract visuals. (Got that?) Grayson Cooke recently commenced as senior lecturer in the School of Arts and Social Sciences at SCU and is course co-ordinator of the Bachelor of Media degree.
Muttboy uses his laptop to create music from sampled sound glitches. A lot of interesting white noise and feedback.
See? I told you it would be an interesting gig – and it’s free!
But wait, there’s more!
Ross Manning also has a visual exhibition in the gallery. His work for Double Refraction is made up of refracted light. Apart from its beauty, the exhibition extends our preconceived notions of what technologies can do. Manning reinvents the conventional functions of his materials.
Double Refraction opens this Friday, April 23, at 6pm and runs until May 29.
