In his Arts Forum Residues and Experiences, Peter Blamey will present a wide-ranging talk, covering everything from sound, working with both garbage and the natural environment, technological artefacts, energy scavenging, science history, idiosyncratic performance techniques, and drawing on some recent projects as examples, which will hopefully communicate something about his experiences with conceptualising and developing performance and exhibition practices within an energetic context.
Peter is a SOCA Artist in Residence.

Released in oversized 7″ package with letterpress backpanel and a 16 page booklet with notes by Douglas Kahn and photographs of the sites and equipment.
Opening with a festival of live performances, Material Sound brings together 6 contemporary artists who each create an experience of sound within installations and apparatus constructed from everyday materials.
Curated by Caleb Kelly, Material Sound features newly commissioned work by artists Vicky Browne, Pia van Gelder, Caitlin Franzmann, Peter Blamey, Ross Manning, and Eric Demetriou.
The artists in Material Sound challenge the stability of materials in their practice. Handmade instruments and electronics, recycled electronic components, outmoded technologies, fake technologies, imagined sounds and silences will form a series of dynamic installations that challenge the way we think about materiality in a cumulative sound experience.
Opening festival, Friday 9 – Sunday 11 Feb

Sounding the Future
curated by Gail Priest
Sounding the Future is an exhibition curated by Gail Priest that speculates about what art in the future will sound like. The exhibition will present sonic “possibles and potentials” ranging from almost-here transhuman mediations, to far-future post-anthropocene aftermaths, with some apocalyptic contingencies in between. We always speak of “visions of the future,” but what if we were to let the auditory realm lead our imaginings? Does the dialogue about futurity take on new dimensions when considered through a different sense ratio? These dreams of future soundings, inflected by our present day, also offer reflections on how we listen now. The artists will develop new work that considers the impacts of new technologies, degrading environmental conditions and the prospect of a post-human world.
Artists: Gail Priest, George Poonkhin Khut, Pia van Gelder & Tom Smith, Peter Blamey
