WIRED O P E N DAY gives the general public the first opportunity to interact with the ‘wires’ and witness its vast array of creative applications.
The WIRED Lab is a collaborative arts project uniquely located in the rural landscape of South West NSW. In 2007 The WIRED Lab was established to create a site for artists, scientists and audiences to expand upon æolian traditions, environmental sonification, ‘wire’ music and research originally developed by Alan Lamb. Since its inception many Australian and international artists have visited The WIRED Lab, their research continues, and October 31st is the first of many future open days.
Performing at WIRED O P E N DAY will be the original wire maestro Alan Lamb and his core crew of collaborators Dave Noyze, Garry Bradbury, Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox. Each artist will be presenting unique ruminations of the ‘wires’ sonic capacities. Dave Noyze and Alan Lamb will perform live mixes of this dynamic instrument; Garry Bradbury provides a live mix in the pitch of ‘B’ (also the pitch of Bees in chorus!) for a ‘great bow’ acoustic performance by Alan Lamb; Oren Ambarchi treats the wires like a giant guitar and amplifier; and Robin Fox utilises wire sounds to control a laser beam across the surface of water.
Commencing in the late afternoon audiences will be bussed from Cootamundra to The WIRED Lab site for a multi-sensory experience of site and sound. From sunset to nightfall audiences will experience the immense dynamic range and capacity of a musical instrument spanning hundreds of metres across the landscape. Affectionately called '... nature's microphone' by WIRED Lab curator Sarah Last, the ‘wires’ and the WIRED O P E N DAY program expands many horizons, and will radically shift paradigms of art, music and space.
