In addition to this session, Scanner will be giving a live performance in Wollongong Wednesday event.

From his website:
British artist Robin Rimbaud traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways. From his early controversial work using found mobile phone conversations, through to his focus on trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis as the symbol of the place where hidden meanings and missed contacts emerge, his restless explorations of the experimental terrain have won him international admiration from amongst others, Bjork, Aphex Twin and Stockhausen.

Additional speakers will include:
  • Chris Moore and Graham Barwell on their collaborative project on creating machinima using World of Warcraft to tell the story of Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales"
  • Brogan Bunt and Peter Goodall on open source frameworks for introducing computational media art practice
  • Lucas Ihlein on the Art School Garden.
The workshop is free for any and all attendees, and Revise participants are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity.
