I’m in the process of editing videos of the Bodyscapes Sydney Fringe Festival season. Here is the latest video, where I play a customised gestural instrument, the Telechord with Robbie Mudrazija on electronic drums.

Thanks to all who came along to the PACT shows. I am on web hiatus for a while as I concentrate on thesis writing and contemplate future performance projects and collaborations. See you on New Years’ Eve at New Psycle.

We had a fun and frantic time at the Beams Festival. It was a challenging but exciting environment to perform in. Thanks to the organisers, CCS Studios UTS for the loan of the projector and Cino for providing the PA. I’ll be posting some videos of people interacting with the installation soon, but for now we’re preparing for Bodyscapes at the PACT Theatre this Friday and Saturday nights – 26 & 27 September.

Beams arts festival – Just announced

•August 12, 2014 • Comments Off

We will be performing and presenting an installation in Chippendale’s Beams laneway festival on one magical night – Saturday the 20th of September. It’s been a while since our last street party in Coogee many years ago, so we’re really looking forward to this one. The public art installation and performance, Vendôme, invites the flâneurs of Chippendale’s laneways to play an audiovisual instrument, explore their own movement potential. In line with the festival’s utopian theme, the work pursues the utopian ideal of finding perfection in patterns of human movement.

NIME 2014 poster session

It was lots of fun demoing the Gestate system we developed for performance at the NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) 2014 conference poster session today. Thanks for the insightful feedback! Definitely plenty of food for thought. Here is a demo I promised.
