6 months in 1 breath

so I think it was fellow-Antipodeans-who-like-to-rock-the-party Flight of the Conchords who diagnosed the problem that when you’re doing cool things you could update your website with, you’re definitely way too busy to be updating a fricking website.

Here we are in Tokyo, eating all the bits of chicken izakaya, drinking hot sake and discussing the proliferation of 2-dimensional images in architecture with Satoru from BuildingLandscape. Let’s do this thing!

Robots and the Bauhaus

Lots of news lately, can’t keep up with the news.

Elena has been awarded a two-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Waseda University, from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), for her work with gynoid robots. Super exciting: this will contribute to a new long-form performance, and a new film, Ningyo Kuyo—Love is Dead, both Tokyo-based! Starts November.

Lindsay’s latest publication is out: You Are Hear is featured in the book Expanded Architecture: Temporal Spatial Practices by Bauhaus Dessau, in the Art | Architecture | Design | Research (AADR) series. Thanks to Claudia Perren and Sarah Breen Lovett, editors extraordinaire.

Reinventing the Wheel by Lull Studios was featured in Off the Wall at the Art and Literature Laboratory, Madison Wisconsin.

Intone award nomination

Lull Studios’ main musical project and fabulous band Actual Russian Brides curated this album Intone: Voice Abstractions for Clan Analogue Recordings last year…

…and it’s received a nomination for the Australian Art Music Awards in the category Excellence in Experimental Music. So we’re pretty proud of that.

‘Intone’ manages to cover an extremely wide range of sonic territory within its thematic remit, with consistently interesting results. Cyclic Defrost
