The second instalment of MESS multichannel commissions sees two extraordinary artists diffuse brand new multichannel works in glorious octaphonic surround. Immersion legend Thembi Soddell will take us on a deep psychological journey in sound while Meri Leeworthy will premiere their recent research into the often baffling world of modular synthesis. Both of these artists create unique sound worlds where conventional rules don’t apply.
The MESS SONOROUS events focus on deep listening and engagement with sound as a plastic or sculptural medium. Audiences are encouraged to recline in the beanbags provided or bring their own cushions to achieve full and relaxed immersion. It is rare for artist working with sound to be given the opportunity to create for a system and situation like this. Come and enjoy an evening of sound impossible to experience any other way. Gems from the archive of Australian electronic music will also be diffused.
MESS would like to thank Creative Victoria and the SUBSTATION for making these events possible.
