For Quiver's upcoming show at 8pm on December 8th , Horti Hall is being transformed into a teeming architecture of sound, video and experimental installation.
With a strong focus on the relationships between sound and image, Quiver will be presenting diverse and idiosyncratic explorations by leading composers, improvisers and visuals artists.
Alvin Lucier's landmark work Queen of the South, for music, resonating surfaces, strewn materials and closed-circuit TV system, will inhabit the space, stretching the boundaries between concert performance and audio-visual installation.
The ensemble will feature Waiting to be Turned Into Puzzles, the 45-minute masterpiece by one of Australia's most innovative composers David Young, and incorporates the latest collaboration between himself and film artist Louise Curham.
And in an exciting one-off event, Quiver has invited live video-projection artist Anthony Magen, as well two of Melbourne's most dynamic improvising musicians, Dale Gorfinkel and Samuel Dunscombe, to develop a new work, Entropy Studies, extending the collaborative potential of live sound, video and electronics processing.
