An evening of soaring soundscapes that transports the listener. Come and meet us to chat about musical residencies on Cockatoo Island through Cockatoo Calling, followed by performances by:
AN INFINITY ROOM (A.I.R) A haunting aura of drones, a Zen-like sense of repose An Infinity Room (A.I.R) inhabits a hazy world of harmonies driven by simple arithmetic patterns. Led by composer and sound artist Julian Day, A.I.R uses multiple synthesizers to create rich sound fields reminiscent of La Monte Young, Phil Niblock and Stars Of The Lid. An ever-evolving lineup allows A.I.R to perform in a wide array of venues including galleries, living rooms, foyers and concert halls. A.I.R has recently appeared at The Old Blue Last (London), Het Nutsuis (The Hague), Exapno (New York), Altes Finanzamt (Berlin), Grantpirrie Gallery (Sydney) and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.
THE SCRAPES Welcome to the planet of The Scrapes. Everything that you know has crumbled and your monuments have returned to the Earth. The Metropolis is no more. The pavement is cracked with tree roots pulsing like veins through hills that never end. This is the future you never predicted even when its icy grip tugged at your wrist. There is a real beauty to it though...the victory of nature over corruption...the sound of trees rustling against rusted industry...the cry of birds above the din of ceaseless traffic...a post-industrial caterwaul from the darkest corners of your memory. Our place is dark, but there are cracks of light through the canopy and a different kind of life thrives here. The air is warm but the wind is cold and the horizon never ends. A landscape both familiar and forgotten...ancient yet regenerative. There are no masters here so close your eyes and forget everything you remember. Ryan Potter: Guitar, loops & various noises Adam Cadell: Violin, loops & various noises
