Scarasson

  • enex

Tura New Music in association with City of Perth and enex present an evolving spatial sound art-music, video projection mapping and sculptural installation by sound artist Steve Paraskos and visual artist Stephen Brameld as part of the City of Perth Winter Arts Season.

Entitled Scarasson the immersive work will be presented as an ever-evolving installation breathing new life into a enex building shopfront, near the Hay Street Mall entrance, from June 19 to August 1. Self-generating, ever-changing, enveloping clouds of swarming rich sound particles softly whir about the space over a multi-speaker array. Every week, new themes, sound and visual material shift and evolve the work.

The finale of Scarasson is a large-scale spatial art music live performance in the State Building’s foyer, with surreal, impossible geologies projection mapped on a haze cloud above. This season will see performances take place nightly from August 1-6.

Transmission: Sheoaks, Shakuhachi and the Doctor

  • Hay St Mall

Sheoaks, Shakuhachi and the Doctor is a sound sculpture of the lost biophony of the location the city now sits on. Where once the sheoaks used to stand now stands buildings, roads, cars and people moving through. The work brings the original acoustic ecology back to where it once belonged and played a ghostly song with the famous wind from the South-West we call the Doctor.

Exact start and end times for the sculpture's existence in Perth TBA.

The Pool - Fiona Harman & Steve Paraskos

  • Smart Casual

Harman and Paraskos present a collaborative installation of sound and light projections to submerse in the atmosphere of relaxation, leisure, menace, desire and longing attached to the swimming pool in Australia. Drawing from personal fascinations and shared experiences, The Pool elevates moments of calm floating, tranquil lapping, playful splashing, even ticking kreepy-krawlies. The surreal sounds and reflections opens attention to the deluge of thoughts, feelings and associations that happen around the pool as a place of multiple experiences, both shallow and deep.
