Event Del Lumanta & Primitive Motion

Del Lumanta & Primitive Motion

First Thursdays X MONO 35

07 November 2019
6–9pm

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.

    MONO is a program of sound curated by Lawrence English of Room40.

    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.
