MMusic/MProjects—Matthew Bird: An immersive encounter with the afterlife

8 - 22 Dec 2017

Artist and experimental architect Matthew Bird will transform MPavilion into an interactive installation that invites audiences to experience an immersive and performative encounter with the afterlife.

The work will be composed of a celestial field of reimagined carillon bells that will produce both chance and compositional harmonies via the natural force of wind, playful audience manipulation, and a commissioned performance by composer Daniel Von Jenatsch and choreographic artist Phillip Adams.

This visual and sonic installation will transform MPavilion into a spirited and experimental instrument with the aim of creating a responsive, transcendent and nondenominational performance dialogue with the hereafter.

Matthew Bird will realise this project with the assistance of students from Monash Art Design and Architecture.
