CARRIAGEWORKS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MONA FOMA PRESENT
AKA THE SPIRAL
Five turntables play samples on an endless loop, inviting audiences to intervene, creating a sonic chaos that is simultaneously cut to vinyl.
The Spiral will transform Carriageworks into an experimental sound recording studio and performance space. Visitors can manipulate looping beats and electronic sounds to record tracks on a vinyl-cutting machine. The person who cuts the record becomes the main attraction, while people can observe the entire process from the seats that form a ring-like area called “The Spiral.” The work has travelled around the world since 2002, in one form or another, including exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon in France, the REDCAT Theater in Los Angeles, and the Tate Modern, London.
Stay up late with The Spiral on Friday 10 June, with sets by Mathieu Briand, E:M:P and Felix Warmuth live from 8pm.
