…slow in to dissolve…

Spatial electroacoustic works by Speak’s 2014 Emerging Artists

rmit-design-hub-2

This year’s Emerging Artist Program focussed on three facets of contemporary music making: electro-acoustic practice, sound spatialisation & improvisation. In July, eight Emerging Artists worked under the guidance of UK composer/performer Richard Barrett, sound diffusion experts from SIAL Sound Studios and Speak Percussion to develop a program of new works. Now, we are excited to preset the startling results. This concert is FREE. Bring your friends!

TRANSDUCER

New work exploring the microphone as sonic object

SmallerTransducerShot

New media artist Robin Fox collaborates with Speak’s Artistic Director, Eugene Ughetti, on a major new electro-acoustic spatialised performance work. TRANSDUCER places the microphone at the centre of the creative investigation and redefines its function and potential as an expressive musical object.  Kinetic sculptures and unorthodox modes of transduction form the musical material of this virtuosic and conceptual Australian work. Presented alongside Karlheinz Stockhausen’s seminal work, MIKROPHONIE I, TRANSDUCER repurposes microphone technology to tease out the inextricable fundamentals of creating, reproducing and manipulating electronic and acoustic signal.
