Artists + machines = it’s complicated

TALKING PROGRESS: A TALK SERIES

Does technology equal progress? Can computers be creative? How does technology intersect, shape and interrupt our artistic progress? Is technology a contributor or counterproductive to making art? We put all these questions and more to a panel of sound and visual artists working closely with new and old technologies.

Speakers 

Dr Cat Hope: Head of the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music. Her composed music ranges from works for laptop duet to orchestra, with a focus on chamber works, and in 2013 she was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to develop her work.

Justin Ashworth: A sound artist/composer/performer working with modular synthesis, field recordings, and an exploration of sound technologies. Justin also runs the collaborative surrealist sound collective, Little Songs of the Mutilated.

Lauren Squire and Matthew Wilson of OK EG: Melbourne based producers Lauren and Matthew’s project OK EG generates spaces between hypnotic polyrhythms and lush ambiance by mixing experimental music and visual art.

This event links with Wavelength II on Saturday 25th May at 7.00pm, created and performed by OK EG for the Sound Gallery at the new Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts.
