Join us at RMIT for two nights of new works and classics of the electro-acoustic repertoire inspired by the sounds of oceans.
The free events will be held at RMIT Storey Hall Auditorium, City campus, Level 5, 336-348 Swanston Street, Melbourne.
Presented by RMIT Gallery in partnership with SIAL (Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory) Sound Studios, the concerts feature works by established and emerging composers from Australia, Canada, Italy, France, NZ, UK and Norway, including the world premiere of Ocean Deep by Canadian composer Barry Truax, who specializes in real-time implementations of granular synthesis, often of sampled sounds, and soundscapes.
Curation and sound diffusion: Lawrence Harvey.
