austraLYSIS is an international ensemble creating and performing music and sound works at the interfaces with text and image; it also brings composition and improvisation together. This performance emphasises the links between text and sound through the presentation of recent works from the ensemble such as Bird Migrants (commissioned by the ABC, 2014); and Metaphorics (2015) involving live coding of sound together with performed text. Scaling the Voices (2015) involves techniques used in resizing voice and speech for experimental purposes, but which also have a long tradition in computer music (for example in our approach to sonic cross-dressing). These are applied to text, environmental and other sounds. The program will also include some audio-visual work in collaboration with Will Luers (USA), and some canonical electro-acoustic music.
Performers: Roger Dean (director; piano; computer); Sandy Evans (saxophones); Hazel Smith (text); Greg White (computer, sound projection).
