Event description

Description

Sound artists interface with sonic environments to provoke changes in the minutiae of everyday life – social, political, aesthetic – as a means to disassemble/reassemble those relations and flows that inform our habitual connections with the world. Three international sound artists – Lisa Hall, Philip Samartzis and Polly Stanton – are invited to RMIT’s Black Box to discuss their sonic practices across urban and wilderness environments, and in relation to human perception. Embodiment, technology, listening and intervention form key approaches of each artist’s interactions with environments and everyday human activity. These practices will be discussed in relationship to immersive audio-visual artworks created by each of the three artists, presented in the Black Box’s state of the art audio-visual system. With discussion guided by Jordan Lacey, audience-participants will have the opportunity to be involved in an open conversation about what a sound art practice is, when realised in the political, social and cultural context of the city.

Lisa Hall is a sound artist exploring urban environments using audio interventions and performative actions, and is affiliated with Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) at University of the Arts London. Currently on sabbatical, Lisa is travelling, listening to urban spaces across the globe and developing new practice based research works.

Phil Samartzis a sound artist, scholar and curator with a specific interest in the social and environmental conditions informing remote wilderness regions and their communities. Philip is the co-founder and artistic director of the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture and teaches courses in sound art and spatial practice in the School of Art.

Polly Stanton is a moving image artist and sound practitioner who’s mode of working is expansive and site based, with her practice intersecting across a number of disciplines from film production, sound design, field research, performance, writing and publication. Polly is a lecturer in the Master of Media program at RMIT University.

Jordan Lacey is an urban sound installation artist and author operating at the interface of the sonic arts and urban design. He is author of Sonic Rupture, which offers an affect-based approach to the design of urban soundscapes, and is recent recipient of a DECRA fellowship entitled, Translating Ambiance.
