14th April - 21st July
Open Tues-Sat, 10am-4pm | FREE ADMISSION
In this their first major collaboration, Sydney based artists Lucas Abela and Keg de Souza have combined their backgrounds in exploratory music and temporary architecture to create Fort Thunder! An electro-acoustic playground with a splattering Goethe’s Colour theory that forms an experiential synaesthesia of colour and sound that introduces children to the joys of electronic music creation and audio manipulation. Disguised as play equipment the fort’s Instruments are played through physical play with responsive cause and effect interactions. These instruments are amplified and connected up to all manner of analogue electronic music making sound processors that bend and mould audio in fantastical ways, which are controlled via child friendly oversized knobs & joystick controllers designed as if Willy Wonka himself made effects pedals.
