Conical Sound Series  

A Poke in the Eye is a Good Distraction from a Ringing Ear ~ concepts for identity development

So, who's it for and what's it about?

A series of live sound performances at Fitzroy’s Conical Inc aimed to provide selected musicians and artists with an opportunity to realise their work within the context of the gallery space.  Various concepts for the event’s identity were considered, including these inspired by Picasso’s cubist composition The Three Musicians, in which the sound series’ hybrid nature is captured through a collage-like juxtaposition of shape and line.  The youthful energy and child-like naivety of the awkward and simplified forms pays homage to the playful processes of arrangement and composition engaged by those performers presented in the series.
