Play On presents: CIRCADIA

12 August 2022 / 8pm / North Magdalen Laundry, Abbotsford Convent
1 St Heliers St, Abbotsford VIC 3067

Experience CIRCADIA: Percussion, bells, found objects and live electronics collide in this new commission by visionary percussive artist Matthias Schack-Arnott. Shifting between delicate other-worldly evocations and driving rhythmic waves, CIRCADIA moves between light and shadow with original lighting design by creative force Amelia Lever-Davidson

Developed during Schack-Arnott’s recent stint as artist-in-residence with the City of Munich, CIRCADIA uses synchronous activation of acoustic and electronic sound to create ambiguous hybrid resonances. By utilising an electro-acoustic approach to percussion, CIRCADIA evokes tracing, spectres and doublings and takes listeners into a textural and rhythmically dynamic sound world.

DJ and artist Kavil rounds out the night with a DJ set created in response to CIRCADIA. Expect moving soundscapes and blurry polyrhythms. 

The North Magdalen Laundry is universally accessible. Gender-neutral and accessible toilets are available within the venue. Please get in touch if you have access requirements
