Event Details

Matthew Gardiner is renown for his work that fuses art with technology, working across such areas as robotics, origami, computer programming, interactivity technology and projection. In collaboration with composer David Young, Matthew is developing a network of multiple Radiobots, small mechanical robotic hammers that can tap rhythms into buildings and other structures. The Radiobots respond to rhythms played on a control panel-instrument, allowing musicians/percussionists to perform on the control-panel-instrument.

Matthew Gardiner’s residency in Shepparton culminates in community workshops, exhibition, and performance demonstration exploring the Radiobots as instruments.

RADIOBOTS EXHIBITION AT SHEPPARTON ART GALLERY 1-20 September 2009: A laboratory style exhibition revealing and exposing the back-end process of constructing the Radiobot instruments. The exhibition offers a magnified viewpoint of the artistic, technical, musical and electronic assemblage process, and is an opportunity to meet the artists and observe the actual construction of the Radiobots instruments.

RADIOBOTS PERFORMANCE DEMONSTRATION: 6pm Friday 18 September 2009. Live demonstration and acoustically amplified performance of the Radiobot instruments with David Young, Eugene Ughetti (percussionist), and Matthew Gardiner. Technical Designer: Ray Gardiner
