Liquid Architecture – “Sonic City”
Monday September 2nd Multipurpose room, RMIT Design Hub, Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston streets, Carlton 3053
8pm / Free
The Overtone Ensemble with special guest Philip Brophy.
As part of Liquid Architecture’s “Sonic City” festival, the ensemble will perform using vibrissae microtonal rod instruments, massed handbells, (including a set of the Federation bells) and assorted percussion.
In addition I’ll be constructing a number of long wire string instruments specifically for this performance. These are 30 metres in length, attached to large resonating drums and are played by hand.
The multipurpose room is huge with long reverb times, and will be a fantastic venue for this special performance.
Did I mention it’s free? Don’t miss this one..
Also performing on the night: Swarm and Murmuration by Atticus Bastow. Large group performance using tone generators and mobile phones.
