FEEDBACK is an experimental music and music-video creative development program that brings together an exciting group of emerging artists from Western Sydney, to collaborate with musicians on the autism spectrum. Working closely with the supported music studio, Club Weld, FEEDBACK will present a new artistic model for video artists to experiment with analogue video synthesis equipment and produce new works in direct response to the musical production and recording process.
Please join us at I.C.E. for the launch of Club Welds new album, Feedback: A Club Weld Compilation and the premiere of the six accompanying music videos from some of Australia’s leading video artists, Marian Abboud, Heath Franco, Jerry Kahale, Nicola Morton, James Nguyen and Naomi Oliver. The artists have worked with Club Weld musicians to create original video works using an analogue video synthesiser, transforming the Club’s eclectic sounds into psychedelic and hypnotic visuals.
Time: 6 – 8pm
When: Friday 16 December 2016
Where: Information and Cultural Exchange (I.C.E.), 8 Victoria Rd, Parramatta. (Cnr Villiers St)
RSVP: Free | Seats are limited so RSVP to [email protected] or call 02 9897 5766
The artists will be introduced to the technology through a series of lectures and workshops led by one of Australia’s most senior video artists and a pioneer of early video synthesis and electronic music, Stephen Jones. The development of these works will occur in parallel with the music of Club Weld, with the aim of both artistic forms converging and informing one another. This experimental model of collaboration across ability and form will provide an example of how artists with disabilities can meaningfully contribute and produce works within the context of contemporary artistic practice.
