Avantwhatever Commissions Launch and Listening Party
Avantwhatever premieres the first in our new series of audiovisual commissions of digital sound, art, and design, presenting works from artists Charmaine Lee (New York), Stephen Cornford (Bristol), and Peter Blamey (Sydney), with an introduction from curator Ben Byrne.
The commissions will be hosted on our dedicated audiovisual server and website, using the open web and peer-to-peer technology to make them freely accessible and discoverable using decentralised social media, as will be demonstrated as part of the event.
The first three commissions will be presented on the night, ahead of publication, using the RMIT Digital Media Black Box's bespoke audiovisual system to offer an ideal listening and viewing environment.
Commissions from experimental vocalist Charmaine Lee, and media artist and researcher Stephen Cornford will be premiered, followed by a live performance from commissioned musician and artist Peter Blamey.
Presented with the Design and Sonic Practice research group in RMIT University's School of Design, as part of Melbourne Design Week 2023
Free by RSVP, with attendees added to the Avantwhatever mailing list
