STARTS @ 6PM SHARP // FREE ENTRY // REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED - Black Box/Block D/UNSW Paddington Campus (see directions in comments)

Join us for the third in a series of bi-monthly events showcasing a diverse range of artists working with and around sound. Curated by members of UNSW’s Sound, Energies and Environments group, the series of early evening performance-focused events present exciting new and experimental works from both emerging, established, local and visiting artists engaged in the expanded domain of contemporary sound practice. 

Jenny Alaca

Jenny Alaca is an artist and writer. Her current research explores the representations of marginalised bodies in technocultural narratives and the constitutive potential of electronic waste, residues and entropic energy in posthuman relations. Her practice spans from text-based works, installation and experimental performance works. 

Jenny will be performing a piece from her current project SLOW/JAM, exploring the emotional labours of her vocal stutter through performances of seduced slowness. A Delayed Auditory Feedback headset is used to bend speech perception, the intensity of the stutter and provide automated speech-to-text transcription. 

Laura Hunt

Laura Hunt is a Sydney based musician and artist. Her solo practice produces dark, electronic, beat heavy dance tracks inspired by a desire for self re-programming through audio and rituals that are manifested through technology. Hunt has been involved in events at the Museum of contemporary Art, The Sydney Opera House and Cite International Des Arts Paris, she has exhibitions taking place in 2018 at Firstdraft and 55 Sydenham Rd. Laura is one half of WDK, a collaborative noise techno duo with artist Jannah Quill. 

Laura Hunt will be performing dance noise, beat heavy tracks formed using amplification of electromagnetic frequencies, drum machine and synthesizers over cracked asmr, paper shuffling, brain hacking audio and heaving half formed vocal samples.

Malcolm Riddoch

Malcom RIddoch's sonic arts practice melds electroacoustic experimentation with phenomenological method in an investigation of indeterminacy in composition alongside the use of acoustic space and electroacoustic feedback in performance as an embodied, intentional, temporalizing process. He works with non-tonal, timbrally focused and technologically organised sound, with thematic dissolution as the central theme. 

Black Box Series is funded by ARC and affiliated with UNSW Art & Design’s Sound, Energies and Environments research group.
