This program consisted of a concert, a series of recordings and a 2 week visual art exhibition.
New artworks designed as music compositions were commissioned from
Matt Hunt, Kevin Robertson, Erin Coates (whos work ‘The Pact’ went on to win the John Springer Prize that year), Marco Fusinato, Brigid Burke, Tina Havelock Stevens and Lucas Abela.
Curatorial Note: The artists were chosen for their connection with music, rather than their abilities to ‘make scores’ – from artists that play in bands, or have featured musicians in their works, have worked with musicians or have works that can be read as music. A range of media featured in the program – sculpture, painting, video and drawing.
