Spring has sprung! Earlier this month, RealTime teamed up with Matthew Lorenzon (of Partial Durations) to conduct a review-writing workshop as part of BIFEM 2015 for five emerging music writers. You can read some of the outcomes of that workshop in this Profiler, and many more on the blog.

We also take a look at some upcoming festivals and events, from one of Sydney’s longest-running specialist film festivals to the eagerly anticipated OzAsia 2015, opening next week, and a gathering of a feral kind at Bundanon.

Plus, a profile of interdisciplinary artist Zoe Scoglio, and an interview with Indonesian sound and installation artist Jompet Kuswidananto.

Lucy Parakhina, Online Producer

Interview: John Baylis, SITEWORKS 2015
SITEWORKS 2015, Bundanon's annual ‘welcoming of Spring’ gathering will host a range of artists, academics, environmentalists and horticulturalists for a one-day exploration of the theme and/or provocation “the feral amongst us.” Jodie McNeilly spoke to Chief Programs Officer John Baylis about ideas and situated realities of the feral.


In Profile: Zoe Scoglio, artist
Stretching from abiogenesis to the Anthropocene Age, Zoe Scoglio’s purview reaches across deep time and space and draws in ideas from the geological to the ceremonial.

 

Interview: Jompet Kuswidananto, Order and After, Sonica 2015, Glasgow
We spoke with Indonesian sound and installation artist Jompet Kuswidananto, who is part of Sonica, Glasgow's ever-growing international sonic arts festival.


Interview: Stefan Popescu, program director, Sydney Underground Film Festival 2015
There’s a compelling array of features, documentaries, shorts and workshops in store at this year’s Sydney Underground Film Festival, which opens tomorrow at Marrickville’s Factory Theatre.



2015 BENDIGO INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF EXPLORATORY MUSIC

Delia Bartle: Erik Griswold, Wallpaper Music
Pianist-composer Erik Griswold’s epic encounter with prepared piano at BIFEM 2015 yields more than the Wallpaper Music of the work’s title.


Jaslyn Robertson: Argonaut Ensemble, Pierre Boulez’s Sur Incises
Three pianists, three harpists and three percussionists become one in an exhilarating account of a modern classic.


Charles MacInnes: Defunensemble, All Finnish
For BIFEM 2015 Finland’s Defunensemble present works ranging from an alto flute reverie with electronics to raw electric guitar-led sublime organised chaos.

Angus McPherson: Argonaut String Quartet, 4x4x4
The Argonaut Quartet and children from St Martins Youth Arts Centre respond to Christophe Bertrand’s Quatuor No.1 in an adventurous new music program.


Matthew Lorenzon: soundinitative, The Exhausted
In a performance at once vivldly theatrical and engagingly cerebral, France’s soundinitiative does Bernhard Lang doing Deleuze doing Beckett.


Simon Eales: The Amplified Elephants, Select Naturalis
At BIFEM 2015 hands-on digital visual and musical magic from Amplified Elephants in a celebration of human evolution and meta-listening.




OZASIA 2015
Teater Garasi, The Streets

The inclusion of The Streets, an immersive dance-theatre work by Indonesia’s highly regarded Teater Garasi and directed by founding member Yudi Ahmad Tajudin, is emblematic of this year's fresh approach to the OzAsia program.

OZASIA 2015

Dancenorth & Batik, Spectra

A key feature of this year’s OzAsia program is an emphasis on cross-cultural collaboration. One such work is Spectra, by Townsville-based contemporary dance company Dancenorth and Japanese Butoh collective Batik, exploring Buddhist ideas of causality and interdependence.
