Newtown Festival @ Camperdown Memorial Park (Sydney)

Sunday is the annual Newtown Festival and despite the festival being 'fenced off' it still promises to be a day of too much liquor and sun, too much dust and a welcome return of scruffiness to the north end of Newtown. At the Camperdown Memorial Park you can catch a bunch of great sounds at the 2SER stage (on the Camperdown/Hopetoun St side of the park) all day including our many of our friends - all totally free!

Codespace integrates realtime drawing and motion-images with electronic sounds that evoke an abstract place where organical and crystalline shapes pulsate and flow. Generative (rule-based) processes or algorithms and realtime action by the artist are applied to basic shapes which in conjuction with finely graded colours comprise a rich palette of textures and shapes. empty dark space is inhabited by fast moving abstract shapes, structures with an architectural quality develop over extended periods of time. The piece evolves from dark and minimalist atmospheres to abstract densities, like a digital painting performed before the viewer's eyes. Memory of the images accumulates, obtaining qualities like a painting or etching. Reduction and concentration of elements helps to maintain the crucial focus, build the tension and give insights into the enigmatic and invisible world built of code.

TBA explores sonic city spaces through a gestural interface. In the current sociological climate, the city can be an alienating yet sonically rich space. Individuals potentially relate more closely to the city, the buildings and architecture than they do to the other inhabitants. However, the city is an ever-changing environment demolishing buildings, resurrecting monuments simultaneous moments of destruction and resurrection. Using footage of Newcastle as well as abstract and generative 3D systems, elements are combined and manipulated in real time using custom built applications developed with Quartz Composer and Max/MSP.

Combining schizophonic computer rendered soundscapes with graphical abstractions Mise En Scene is an exploration of film sound - in particular the importance of incidental sound in the creation of effective and diverse virtual environments. Using abstract methods of translating appropriated video and sound Mise En Scene demonstrates the very human ability to make sense out of nonsense when within a set of guidelines and expectations. Mise En Scene ultimately focuses on the creation of scenes from a variety of visual and sonic signifiers, the end result being akin to a strange dream open to interpretation.
