In this podcast episode, we feature the first of our irregular new series, NWA Profiles – new stories, interviews and recordings from around the country; filed by contributors from New Weird Australia’s volunteer network. For Episode 26, Matthew O’Shannessy and Michael Prior from Tape Projects talk to Melbourne-based improvisor, installation artist and instrument builder, DALE GORFINKEL.
Dale has previously curated the Now Now Festival in Sydney, and currently coordinates the Out Hear Festival, a Melbourne festival focused on outdoor performances and soundwalks. In this report, we hear about Dale’s study of ping pong balls, kinetics and the problem of invisible speakers. We also hear a live performance by Dale for prepared vibraphone recorded at Bouverie Studios in Melbourne.
Originally broadcast on 22nd March 2012.
