Mark Hooper featuring Steve Schulz on percussion and Harry McCullough on visuals.
An experimental live and improvised audio visual performance, using found objects, field recordings, drones, motor rhythm percussion and generative live video. Inspired by the industrial textures and soundscapes of the Latrobe Valley, Mark, Steve and Harry explore the nature of sound and industrial aesthetics, drawing the audience into the realm of the industrial and ‘the machine’, whilst also reflecting upon the mechanisms of electricity and labour that underpin modern society.
Mark is a sound designer, sound editor, musician and experimental video artist. In recent years, Mark has drawn upon his extensive experience with percussion, and sound composition, to collaborate with local and international artists on films, animations, documentaries and digital works. He has also undertaken numerous field recordings across the Gippsland area, which is a key focal point of many of his compositions.
Steve Schulz is a master percussionist, drummer, workshop facilitator and musician who has toured extensively across over the last 30 years, performing solo and collaboratively at festivals, and shows all across Australia.
Harry McCullough is a digital and visual artist and animator from Melbourne. He works in interactive and generative visual for musical performances and installations. The artist infuses his work with contemporary, technical and progressive visual aesthetic.
