Event Details

A digital fever dream made manifest, this world premiere Chamber Made work by local sound-and-light pioneer Robin Fox and collaborators dares to imagine a transhuman tomorrow where software enables the promise of utopia.

Diaspora is inspired in part by the dizzying concepts of Australian author Greg Egan's legendary science fiction masterpiece of the same name, which imagines a distant future in which minds and machines have long been merged. 

Rather than fearing technology as the bringer of impending catastrophe, Fox and collaborators consider the shimmering possibility that becoming software could not only save our species from extinction but offer a beautiful moment of evolution towards an ethereal, non-body consciousness.

Projection, illusions and sense-defying lasers carve out a truly futuristic design space to house the ensemble of extraordinary musicians tasked with making audible the creation of a digital life-form. A visual symphony for machines, violin, voice, ondes musicales, theremin and laser, this astonishing project brings together some of today's finest creative minds to imagine a mind that is yet to come. Be there at the moment of its birth.
