Human/Machine Interaction

Fifty years ago Gordon Mumma's Hornpipe ushered in a new kind of music allowing human and machine interaction in the form of a ‘semi-automatic response to the sounds generated by the performer’. Today human/machine interaction from Siri to Google has become ubiquitous; in this concert WAAPA Composition and Music Technology students explore the implications and consequences of this new form of music.

High Tide 17 ≈ Sonnenmasse | Leon Ewing

https://www.facebook.com/events/142626176327085/

Sonnenmasse is an ongoing project by vocalist and bass soloist Leon Ewing. Drawing upon doom metal, drone and shoe-gaze, he composes his music according to the acoustic and aesthetic quality of the spaces he performs in. Working around the resonant frequencies, reverberations and standing waves of the built environment of the Shipstores, Ewing’s site-specific sonic experience will shift and heighten your awareness of time and place. A deeply sensory experience for an audience of one.

Sounding Art Performance
Sep

6:00pm 6:00pm

Sounding Art Performance

Decibel New Music Ensemble have commissioned a number of Australian visual artists to create artworks designed to be read as scores for performance. The artists were chosen for their connection to music, rather than their abilities to ‘make scores’ - artists who play in bands, have featured musicians in their works, have worked with musicians on work, or have works that can be read as music. A range of media will feature in the exhibition, including sculpture, painting, video and drawing.

For one night only, Decibel New Music Ensemble will perform the works "composed" by the exhibiting artists in Sounding Art. This is a ticketed event. Bookings through EventBrite.
