An evening of radical sound works occupying the galleries, screening room and courtyard of the IMA.
FEATURING: Alessandro Bosetti, Bianca Hester, Emile Zile, ID M Theft Able
● Italian artist Alessandro Bosetti will perform in the slippage between information and pure sound in speech – the point at which language becomes music, and at which music becomes a language with his work Mask Mirror, in which he uses a synthesiser to manipulate spoken word samples from field research, interviews, conversations and soliloquies to develop elaborate, evolving abstract live compositions.
● One-man-category-non-conformist Maine, USA experimental performer i dm thffftt able will stage a series of deeply singular experimental music performances primarily using vocals (grunts, screams, tongueclicks, gurgling, chanting) in combination with sounds summoned from a mostly jerryrigged arsenal of amplified and unamplified objects, bent circuits, homebuilt keyboards and modified tape machines.
● Melbourne artist Emile Zile will detourn everyday social media and search tools in a dynamic live performance that offer new perspectives on these readytohand tools, and the subtle ways these might condition contemporary experience.
● Sydney-based artist Bianca Hester, appearing in Brisbane for the first time, will perform her sculptural intervention, Sonic Alterations of Constructed Space With Metal Objects, in the IMA courtyard.
