Michael Louttit

Sound Offering VII

07 December 2019
5–6pm

Join Brisbane-based sound artist Michael Louttit, for the seventh edition of Sound Offering, Boxcopy’s monthly program that invites sound artists and experimental musicians to produce an evening of listening.

Louttit’s synthesiser drone performance explores ideas of deep listening, acoustics (how sound travels), and psychoacoustics (how sound is perceived). In this performance Louttit challenges the audience to closely observe and listen to their surroundings as the sounds of a classic 80s synthesiser are projected from highly directional speakers. The sounds interact with and activate the space through layers of rhythm and droning.

After the performance Louttit will briefly discuss his practice with Boxcopy Co-Director Naomi Blacklock.

  • Partner:

    Sound Offering VII is presented by Boxcopy in partnership with the IMA.

    Michael Louttit is an artist, musician, and educator. His practice investigates interactive systems (acoustics, amplification, feedback), repetition (loops, drones), unreliability (of brain, of body, of objects, and malfunctioning equipment), movement (and the traces it may leave), gender norms (interrogation of patriarchal and masculinist ideals), humour, and improvisation.
