Marking the start of two months of activity, SIT|EV’s inaugural event explores the use of music within contemporary art practice. The event features screenings of works by video-art pioneers Steina and Woody Vasulka, performances from SIT|EV commissioned artist Alice Theobald, contributions from Sarah Rara + Luke Fischbeck (Lucky Dragons), a screening of recent works by Peter Burr and a collaborative performance by Liam Wright Higgins & Joseph Lewis (featuring Naseby Fox) . With a particular focus on how artistic processes can be used as compositional tools, the evening’s activity considers both the legacy of ‘process music’ of the 1960s and how sound and image processing techniques overlap.
