Special Events 2017

Scarasson

Monday 19 June – Tuesday 1 August
enex, 683 Hay St Mall
Free

Tura New Music in association with City of Perth and enex present an evolving spatial sound art-music, video projection mapping and sculptural installation by sound artist Steve Paraskos and visual artist Stephen Brameld as part of the City of Perth Winter Arts Season.

Entitled Scarasson the immersive work will be presented as an ever-evolving installation breathing new life into a enex building shopfront, near the Hay Street Mall entrance, from June 19 to August 1. Self-generating, ever-changing, enveloping clouds of swarming rich sound particles softly whir about the space over a multi-speaker array. Every week, new themes, sound and visual material shift and evolve the work.

The finale of Scarasson is a large-scale spatial art music live performance in the State Building’s foyer, with surreal, impossible geologies projection mapped on a haze cloud above. This season will see performances take place nightly from August 1-6.

Follow the Facebook event to find out when the artists will be in the space.

Stephen Brameld

Brameld is a painter and projection artist from Perth, Western Australia. Painted outside, his large scale, mostly abstract painting are impulsive resonses to time and place. The act of painting and the paint itself is left to the mercy of the weather of any given day – from temperature, humidity, sunlight and cloud cover to rain and the sun’s angle of incidence.
