Event details Event cancelled
Be immersed in this audiovisual extravaganza where live music and light bring the Dome to life. Performers include the Duckworth / Hullick Duo and the BOLT Ensemble. Limited tickets per session.
At this world premiere event, the Duckworth/Hullick Duo offer adventurous audiences an electronic synaesthetic virtual world – inspired by possible technological futures. What will the musical instruments of the future look like? How might performers play and compose in real-time 3D? What are the dimensions of performance spaces that will immerse audiences and performers alike?
Resonance in the Dome is a 21st century audiovisual spatial experience like no other. Held at the RMIT Design Hub, the performance will be presented under the architecturally designed projection of the DomeLab: an ultra-high resolution (4K) (4096 x 4096 pixels), 6 metre wide immersive, hemispherical display which is horizontally suspended over the audience.
Resonance is a unique interactive tabletop used as an audiovisual and ‘musical‘ instrument. The table was created by the 2015 Victorian Premier’s Award winner Dr Jonathan Duckworth and his team at the RMIT Creative Interventions Art and Rehabilitation (CiART) Lab. Resonance in the Dome will feature internationally acclaimed sound artist James Hullick performing three new works on the world-leading Resonance instrument and in concert with four celebrated percussion members of the BOLT Ensemble: Nat Grant, Timothy Phillips, James Townsend and Hamish Upton. The movement and manipulation of objects, touch and gesture on the Resonance table will generate sonic perturbations, pulsing visual lines and glowing fragmented geometries which display on both the table and the Dome.
Be brave and be immersed in the audiovisual spaces of the Duckworth/Hullick Duo.
Performances are limited to 20 people per session. The audience will have the unique opportunity to watch live, the Duckworth/Hullick Duo, BOLT percussionists and the Resonance table come to life inside the Dome.
