The NOW now
The NOW now series continues in August with:
Megan Alice Clune
Niki Johnson & Solomon
Thomas Knox Arnold
Megan Alice Clune shifts between musician, composer and artist. Primarily, her work consists of a dissection of musical elements and contexts through verbal or text-based scores, sound installation and collaboration. Megan has presented work and undertaken residencies across Australia, Europe and North America, including the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival, Underbelly Arts, Next Wave Festival, Performa 15 and Vivid Live at the Sydney Opera House.
Niki Johnson & Solomon Frank’s animalistic duologue manifests itself as a series of improvised musical role-plays. Johnson’s sensual percussion and Frank’s bestial clarinet viscerally combine to create shifting power plays. Their music is an outlet for fantasy and delusion; the naughty sea creature and its sadistic trainer, a midwinter visit to the beach or a stranger calling in the night.
Thomas Knox Arnold/Lucas Darklord
You will, in a way, become part of the sound. Improvised sound and music collaborating with live and chaotically processed rearrangements of the space and sounds before the performance. Become lost in the string of moments. Reflect. Reprocess. Reflect.
Lucas Darklord is a focused manifestation of corporate energies, ancient and sublime.
Thomas Knox Arnold probably doesn't want to be here, but he's being brave this time.
