Transductions: Energies in the Arts
Martin Howse (UK)
Pia van Gelder
Peter Blamey

Red Rattler
6 Faversham St,

The two nerve centres of energy arts, one based in Berlin, the other in Sydney, meet for the first time on Saturday night, 15 August at the Red Rattler.

U.K. artist based in Berlin, Martin Howse is at the artistic vortex of radical coding, earth coding, and psychogeophysics, opening up new possibilities for sound and experimental music on the Continent. In the country for the first time to keynote the Energies in the Arts conference, Howse joins two of Australia’s finest performers, Pia van Gelder, a synaesthetic manipulator of micro-currents, and Peter Blamey, an artful reinterpreter of everyday technologies, to plug into the sounds of incredibly creative force fields of mystical hacking, open electronics, earth circuits and shimmering synapses.

Open to all, their performances are the fireworks at the end of the Energies in the Arts conference held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and University of New South Wales Art & Design.
