Naomi Oliver / Eloise Maree / Martyn Jolly with Alexander Hunter & Elisa de Courcy

Naomi Oliver will perform a mesmerising combination of experimental music, sound and video art. Oliver's visuals consist of dream-like, abstracted video-synthesis textures, coded animation, and imagery, manipulated using glitch-art techniques and over-processing. The sound is comprised of pieces created between 2007-2022 and incorporates vocals, distorted cassette audiotape recordings, feedback and synthesiser.

Eloise Maree will project Anamneses and will also present a prose poem as a companion piece to her works at Mt Vic Flicks and Mt Victoria Manor. Anamneses is a visual and audial exploration of photography’s relationship with land. Eloise uses cinema and wet plate photography to explore the liminalities and dynamism of landscapes, as well as field recordings and piano to expand on these landscapes' histories and beautiful together with fraught relationships with photo-taking.

Martyn Jolly is an artist, writer, and Honorary Associate Professor at the Australian National University School of Art and Design. He led the international project Heritage in the Limelight: The Magic Lantern in Australia and the World,and along with his co-creators, Alexander Hunter (composer/musician) and Elisa de Courcy (magic lanternist/writer/researcher) he delivers collaborative magic lantern performances around Australia. This special performance involves a pair of ‘dissolving view’ lanterns dating from the 1880sprojecting original, hand-painted glass slides with abstracted optical effects (chromatropes). The performance also includes collodion-on-glass slides of people picnicking and bushwalking, made in and near the Blue Mountains in the 1880s, by amateur photographer, Alfred Allen.Audiences are encouraged to examine the slides and lanterns after the performance.

MAPBM is delighted to bring this special one-night-only ‘son et lumière’ performance (a spectacle of sound and light) to a small, lucky audience at Rhomboid. It will be a memorable event for children 5yrs and above, and adults alike.
