‘The collaboration of Alan Lamb, Rosalind Hall, Dale Gorfinkel and Peter Blamey brings together four artists who are exploring experimental approaches to sound through instrument building and installations.
Expect a wondrous world of automated contraptions, supermagnets, long wires, ping pong balls, multi-speaker sculptures, cellular automata and electronics. They will be creating an exhibition of constantly transforming kinetic sculptures that explore the chaotic interplay between sound, light, air, water and electricity.

Alan Lamb’s (WA) work involves the exploration of sound structures, neither musically ‘designed’ nor of random occurrence. Such structures possess the properties of beauty, complexity and evocation of the emotional, the spiritual and the imaginary.
Dale Gorfinkel (VIC) builds automated mechanical sculptures based on his unique approach to the vibraphone. He creates wondrous sonorities using motors, aluminum bars, swinging tin resonators, ping pong balls and trumpets that play themselves.
Rosalind Hall (VIC) is developing a unique sonic language by making modifications to the saxophone. Rosalind has also been working on speaker sculptures which use vibrational feedback to create sound and movement.
Peter Blamey (NSW) is an artist who has been working with simple electronic feedback systems in both performance and installation for quite a while now, and looks like continuing to do so for the foreseeable future.
