Performer details:

Adam Nash

Dr Adam Nash is widely recognised as one of the most innovative artists working in virtual environments, realtime 3D and mixed-reality technology. He is a digital virtual media artist, composer, programmer, performer and writer, working primarily in networked and real-time 3D spaces, exploring them as live audiovisual performance spaces, sites for data/motion capture and generative audiovisual environments. He has worked as composer and sound artist with Company In Space (AU) and Igloo (UK), exploring the integration of motion capture into realtime 3D audiovisual spaces.

A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes

A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes is a blank slate, heavily informed by work in radio making (Radio National, Paper Radio, Better Off Dead, Wiluna Remote Community School) and music (Speed Painters, ii, Aleks and the Ramps). Curious about the parameters set by a live performance (time, amplification, contained space, physical activity, assumptions of attention), A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes will (probably) be a sounded response to a handful of questions: Is it valuable to sound nice? What is entertaining? Are stories distracting? How do performers manage audience attention? What do we all wish to achieve by being present, and to what extent can we satisfy all parties?

Kawai Yoshitake

Kawai Yoshitake is visiting Melbourne from Japan, while he is here he has been listening to what the city has to offer and making some beats of his own.
