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.
