Proof of Concept – Robin Fox Photo Exhibition until mid September

August 6, 2010

Gallery 1

The Proof of Concept series emerges out of Robin Fox’s practice spanning seven years as an audio-visual performance artist exploring the area of synaesthesia via electrical signal equivalence. These explorations focus on the conversion of sounding electricity into visual electricity using oscilloscopes and laser projectors to facilitate the visualisations. The use of both mediums requires that a single light source move with enough speed to create persistence of vision, allowing for the emergence of solid two- and three-dimensional correlates to the sound algorithms. In this series of photographs, sounding algorithms are visualised using laser light and captured using long exposure to allow for the light to trace across the recording medium. The result is a time-distilled snapshot of the sampling space. The photographs represent after-images, slices of time that contain these algorithms, which have their genesis in sound. Displayed in a linear sequence, the photographs are a silent witness to this process.

…I think I”ll let the above speak for itself.  Robin Fox is an amazing artist. Go look at his work.


Liquid Architecture Sound Art Festival, July 2010

June 9, 2010

Liquid Architecture Festival is once more nearly upon us, with its usual diverse range of artists, spaces, media and performance.  This year, the focus seems to be on Australian artists, rather than importing a bunch of intriguing internationals, with just a smattering of imports including Japan’s KK Null.  The festival doesn’t suffer a whit from being more localised, though:  we have an astonishing amount of talent here in our own front, back and side yards.  What better way to get yourself acquainted with some of our most intriguing sonic ambassadors like Robin Fox, Snawklor, Matt Tierney and many more.

This year’s line up is available at the Liquid Architecture website:

Robin Fox’s Laser show @ Toff Tues March 18

March 14, 2008

not much notice about this event, but no less interesting for it.

 I found this on a very worth melbourne blog Experimental Melbourne:

Maximum Arousal Tues Mar 18 – Cor Fuhler (Holland) w/Ambarchi/Avenaim + Robin Fox!

The Toff – 252 Swanston St. Melbourne
COR FUHLER (Holland)/OREN AMBARCHI/ROBBIE AVENAIM TRIO and ROBIN FOX’S MULTI LASER EXTRAVAGANZAMore than any other instrument, the piano has a sound, a history and a repertoire that can easily overwhelm a player’s individuality. How many times have you seen someone sit down and put his or her fingers to the keyboard only to hear a generic “piano” sound that turns the music into so much sonic whitewash? Dutchman Cor Fuhler seeks to take this classic instrument beyond our usual perceptions to another level entirely, specializing in sustained sounds thru the use of various string stimulators. Fuhler’s playing can evoke a gamelan ensemble, tone generators, percussion and strings with extensive use of electronics, such is the variety of his sounds. Tonight Fuhler will perform in trio with renowned Australian artists Oren Ambarchi & Robbie Avenaim.

Also appearing is Robin Fox in a rare multi-laser performance. A Fox laser show envelops the audience in synchronous sound and light information, the experience resembles a synaesthetic experience where what you hear is also what you see. The same electricity generated to move the speaker cones is sent simultaneously to high-speed motors that deflect the laser light on an x/y axis converting sonic vibration into light movement. Always mindblowing & not to be missed!!!
