THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS

NICK WILSON

SUPER LUMINUM: CAT HOPE + LISA McKINNEY

The Amplified Elephants will transport your mind to subterranean sonic worlds. Inspired by creatures from deep sea, The Elephants will premiere a 20-minute version of their new work DEEP CREATURES.

Nick Wilson will reconfigure your relationship to social media with his witty and thought provoking work, I AM SHARING IN A ROOM. Ableton music software never felt so mischievous.

Buckle yourself up for SUPER LUMINUM, the sound art wall of sound experience by two denizens of Australian noise and art music. Cat Hope on bass – right back where she began. And Lisa MacKinney unleashing with her first love: that most recalcitrant of electric guitars.
