1. Sound to Light — Crossing Borders is a dynamic, playful, chaotic, experimental, social art project that encourages exciting new collaborative partnerships between sound and visual artists.

    Traversing cities, locations and festivals, Sound to Light — Crossing Borders reflects interdisciplinary practice and artists/curators’ locality (Melbourne & Hobart) and the extension of new partnerships beyond artists’ current practice and locations. Presented through leading Australian winter festivals: Dark Mofo in Hobart and The Light in Winter in Melbourne, each partnership is given two months to create their work which is then streamed/broadcast simultaneously in real time in a night of cross-media collaboration.

  4. This work is inspired by pop cultural mythology surrounding Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys), the ethereal vocal harmonies typical of his compositions, the all-encompassing emotive quality and romance of his pet subject (the sea) and draws its title from an essay about Brian Wilson by rock journalist Nick Kent.

    Voices, the sound of crashing waves and a miniature piano in a sandbox will create this sound environment. Whilst composing, Wilson required an inspirational environment and this took the form of a sandbox set up in his living room, with his piano inside it. For the installation, the toy piano will also be miked up and delayed. The audience is encouraged to make sand castles, write messages in the sand and/or play the piano, adding to the soundscape through their play.

    Kelly's Garden, Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart, Australia.
    Presented by Salamanca Arts Centre and MONA FOMA.

  5. “It’s remark­able the­atre, exe­cuted with an exact bril­liance that makes its sen­sual vivid­ness all the more pow­er­ful. The the­atre becomes, quite nakedly, a kind of psy­chic echo cham­ber. This is not to be missed”. - Ali­son Crog­gon, The­atre Notes
