Following on from SCM’s engagement with UTS Architecture students in 2017, SCM will collaborate with UTS students studying Architecture Design:Performance to create a sound performance in UTS’  Frank Gehry designed Business School. Join us for a sound performance, made in collaboration with 90 UTS Architecture students, that explores this iconic architecture, how we interact with its form and space and the building’s capacity to hold and transmit sound.

The performance will be followed by a panel discussion in the Moot Court Law Building 5B cnr Quay St & Ultimo Rd. 4-5pm

Panel includes:

Julian Day, artist Super Critical Mass

Joanne Kinniburgh, Lecturer School of Architecture

Super Critical Mass led a sound exploration workshop with students studying the design of performance venues in the Faculty of Architecture. They experimented with the sonic performance of a variety of objects in three separate spaces, the DAB building, the Goods Line and the iconic Chau Chak Wing Business School designed by Frank Gehry. View a short Social Media video here.

This project will be developed further in 2018 where Julian Day of SCM will work with Architecture students to perform a sound piece in the Gehry designed Business school at UTS.

UTS ART Live is a series of temporal public performance events curated by Alice McAuliffe, Coordinator Learning and Projects, that bring together professional artists and UTS students to collaborate and produce art events on campus.
