DOUBLE BILL: TESS KING + VOLTFRUIT
Threadbare Entanglement by Tess King + Voltfruit with Flora Wong and Luke Cuerel
Presented by Restrung Productions and Metro Arts
Restrung Festival presents this special double-bill performance by electronic voyagers Tess King and Voltfruit.
Threadbare Entanglement by Tess King
Combining captivating physical performance, Tess conducts a narrative of sound, telling a story of tangled webs and invisible threads. The hum and thrum of layered sounds will lull you further inwards in this work inspired by the wires of communication and means of interconnectedness we live by these days. At its center lays a conductor, waving motions of grandeur to desperately perpetuate the web. An impression of self and the fraught struggle of disparate harmonies. Projections of abstract shapes and motions ensnare you into a world of tilting balances. Beware the spider that weaves her web.
Voltfruit with Flora Wong and Luke Cuerel
Voltfruit is a Brisbane-based experimental music duo consisting of Flora Wong (strings/electronics) and Luke Cuerel (winds/synths/electronics). They draw on their collective experience and training in classical, jazz and contemporary music, combining improvisatory and compositional techniques and exploring the interaction between acoustic and electronic sounds. They enjoy collaborating with other musicians and creating cross-disciplinary work with other artists, and have a keen interest in the sound environments and histories of places and making site-specific works incorporating samples and field recordings.
