2012 – Namadgi ACT AUS


A two day workshop exploring improvisational strategies for performing instant composition with movement and sound.

Led by Richard Johnson (sound artist) and Orr and Sweeney (movement), this workshop will identify some of the latent processes that play out in performance interactions between live sound and movement, exploring the idea of passive and active listening, constructive and deconstructive meaning creation and rhythmic translation both through sonic and somatic processes.



Vision has a defined limit: ie. our eye’s radar is determined by light and periphery, whereas the aural perception is much more fluent; sound operates as a fluctuating medium...The landscape becomes temporal through sound / our perception becomes rhythmic. This is connected to balance - how we orientate ourselves in proximity to matter as well as to sound.
