Coming up: ‘PURSUIT: A Performance Event’.

Filed under: Events — nicholasb @ 10:31 pm

We met Jon and Robin in the shop today, two artists putting on this event. It’s on at Carriageworks for free on the 14th of February from 7.30pm. Check out those first two websites and think of the possibilities – bike powered, mutant violin, laser light show is what I’m imagining.

Pursuit is a chamber orchestra of mobile, bicycle-powered acoustic musical instruments with wireless transmission technology that will inhabit the vast foyer of CarriageWorks.

Using everything from horns on handlebars, to complex constructions with wind, string, or piano actions, Pursuit is a choreographed spectacle of sound, speed and light based on pedal power. This unique one-day free event will be developed by internationally acclaimed composer and violinist Jon Rose and media artist Robin Fox during their residency at Performance Space.
