THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS

+ DUCKWORTH HULLICK DUO

The Amplified Elephants respond to the concept of ‘evolution’ from the perspective of intellectual disability. Working with The Duckworth Hullick Duo, who have developed a touch screen interface as a musical and visual performance instrument, The Amplified Elephants explore an evolving world of sounds that suggest the micro – such as cellular organisms – to the macro – large-scale, though imaginary, beasts. This is an adventure of the audio visual kind.

The Resonance Table is a digital visual-audio instrument that The Duckworth Hullick Duo have created under the umbrella of CiART Labs at RMIT University.

DURATION: 40 min
