Everything Is In Motion is a new multi-turntable installation/kinetic sound sculpture that will be debuting at next week’s One Night In Footscray Festival.
The work is driven by four turntables underneath a series of suspended objects, striking items placed on each turntable. The suspension itself is sympathetic to the action below, it’s course and sway influenced by each strike on the objects circling underneath. Everything is in motion, nothing is stable.
The installation will run from 5-10pm on Friday 23 November, inside the MetroWest shopping arcade, accessible from entrances at 47 Paisley St, and the corner of Paisley and Albert Sts (near the Millennium Clinic). The preparations will be altered throughout the evening as part of a compositional structure I’ve written. Feel free to sit with the work and experience it’s rhythms for an extended period, or just drop in for a minute. It would also be worthwhile returning through the evening at different times to check in with how the work develops/decays, in between exploring other events as part of the One Night In Footscray festival (which are all free).
