Gig Information

Cross Modal: Audiovisual Sonic Art
26 May – 26 June

Across live performance, exhibition, and film screening, Cross Modal presents a variety of projects which draw connections between sound and moving image. Cross Modal is a project motivated by an understanding that what is heard and what is seen are related. Works presented here occupy a space of interference, fermentation and inter-influence, with each avenue of perception feeding into the other.

For the second night of live Cross Modal performances, recently returned multimedia, multi-disciplinary artistic duo, Isabella Dampeny and Theo MacDonald, debut their newest live performance project, LONDON DRUGS. Additionally, Audio Foundation Artist in Residence, Chris Schmelz, presents cinema as you’ve seldom considered it, exploding preconceptions through the inversion of perceptual priority and expanded techniques and “anti-proper use” of projection equipment.

LONDON DRUGS produce noise as a cinematic scrapbook, using digital samples and improvisational parody to demonstrate their lack of musical skill. They have released three albums on Bandcamp, two of which they like, and are currently learning to play the electric guitar.

Chris Schmelz is an interdisciplinary artist from Koputai/Port Chalmers, Ōtepoti/Dunedin, predominantly working with analog film and sound. Chris has performed nationally and internationally as part of the long-running experimental film/expanded cinema group, Rubbish Film Unit, and in collaboration with a number of other artists and musicians. His work embraces visual aesthetics usually associated with lack of film care, technical mistakes or mechanical malfunction, utilizing found, forgotten, and hand-processed celluloid film.

Friday 28 May @ Audio Foundation, doors open 8pm
