Opening Night Party – What I See When I Look At Sound

Friday 11 July, 6 – 10pm | FREE EVENT

Join us as we celebrate the opening night of What I See When I Look at Sound, an exhibition of sound launching new pieces by five outstanding Australian artists: Lyndon Blue, Lauren Brown, Matthew Gingold, Cat Hope and Kynan Tan. This exhibition unites radically different manifestations and improvisations on the theme of seeing and shaping sound. Ruminating on the fringes of the musical encounter before, during and after the live gig or performance, the works in the exhibition are synaesthetic offerings for our senses, profoundly shifting the registers that we usually associate with sound.

The opening party is set to be an experience for the whole body! Featuring the Australian Bass Orchestra’s premiere concert , the launch of new Bloomsbury publication Digital Arts: An Introduction to New Media and a Silent Disco in the West End Gallery with dance off DJs:

Kynan Tan VS Matt Gingold

KUCKA VS Modesty Blaze

Maxxi Staxxx VS MC Minelli

We’re staying open late, keeping the party going until 10pm!
