Sculpture is musician, Dan Hayhurst and visual artist, Reuben Sutherland. Their work mixes electronic music, kinetic art and abstract animation in idiosyncratic polymedia amalgams. The duo’s live AV performances are central to this process. Sutherland’s visual turntablism employs an ever expanding library of zoetropic prints, intricate patterns which come to life when filmed with a video camera. Mechanical imaging technology combines with digital and software based practice in surreal, hyperkinetic loops. There’s a clear connection with the physicality of Hayhurst’s approach to sonics – unstable permutations of tape loops, lo-fi electronics and digital sequences played with a battered reel to reel tape recorder, computer, walkman, sampler and FX units. Sculpture explore spontaneous connections, simultaneity, juxtapositions and collisions through multi-sensory stimuli.
