Join us for a special MONO edition of First Thursdays. Hear live sets from Sydney-based artist and musician Del Lumanta and Brisbane two-piece Primitive Motion at the IMA.
Having performed at Dark Mofo, Vivid, Next Wave, Sydney Festival, and more, Del Lumanta’s experimental sounds “excavate corners of luminous sonic detail that slowly radiate and combust”.
Primitive Motion is the collaborative project of Brisbane artists Sandra Selig and Leighton Craig. Over the past decade they have recorded an extensive body of work, with five albums released to date. As a live entity, Primitive Motion’s performances range from fuzzy motorik songs to extended improvised ambient works and video projection.
Be sure to register for free to avoid missing out.
Through their solo and collaborative music and sound projects Del Lumanta has supported Klein, Caterina Barbieri, Lucy Cliche, William Basinksi + Lawrence English, Rui Ho, Blues Control, Deerhoof, Container, Opal Beau, Aisha Devi, and more.
For their last appearance at the IMA in 2017, they improvised a live film score with Ross Manning for the silent classic The Passion of Joan of Arc, and have more recently performed outdoor improvisations responsive to the natural environment, including at Why Listen to Plants, Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens and Botanica, City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane.
Primitive Motion’s audio-visual collaboration Special Mechanism for Universal Uncertainty was included in Before and After Science at the 2010 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art and subsequently acquired by the Buxton Collection, Melbourne.
