THE SONIC EARTH. Artist in Residence - Tanks Arts Centre & Cairns Botanical Gardens. Installation Nov 8-14. Performances Nov 8,12,14

Tuesday 02, July 2019

Listen. If you can turn up silence, then what does it sound like? If all the world is vibration, how can you play it? Local musician and experimental artist, Natalia Mann has spent four months listening to the trees of the Cairns Botanic Gardens, in an attempt to engage them in conversation - in the language of music. Natalia’s approach is scientific, using biodata sensors to produce the trees’ sounds, intuitive, and highly social as she draws other artists and musicians into the project. Over three evenings, Natalia and her collaborators will present a musical triptych of unique performances co-written by trees and humans. Artists include: Tegan Koster, David Hudson, Deline Briscoe, Bonemap, Patty Preece, plus a raft of local creatives and students. DOORS/BAR: 6:30PM SHOW STARTS: 7:30PM VENUE: TANK 3
