John Chantler is one of the true stalwarts of Room40’s fifteen year history. His approach to modular synthesis, which has been his primary focus for more than half a decade, is entirely individual.
Working in a quadraphonic set up, Chantler uses control voltage to unexpected ends — equally beautiful and abstract. His Australian performances herald the release of a new set of recordings due later this year. At MUMA, Chantler will be joined by Brisbane electro-acoustic experimentalist Andrew Tuttle, who presents works from his newly released Fantasy League album.
Organised by Francis E. Parker
Sound Spacesis a performance series, organised by Francis E. Parker, of experimental and improvised music that embraces the growing overlap between visual art and sound art. Sound Spaces opens up MUMA’s artistic program to ephemeral presentations by Australian and international artists and musicians, encompassing both acoustic performance and electronics.
A rotating collaboration, Sound Spaces sees MUMA work with different innovative experimental music organisations such as the Australian Art Orchestra, Liquid Architecture and Room40 for each iteration of the series. The series runs in parallel with MUMA’s exhibition program with occasional direct dialogues with particular exhibition projects.
Presented in collaboration with Room40, Brisbane.
John Chantler’s appearance is made possible with support from Konstnärsnämden — The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
