An exhibition of contemporary experimental music and sound art curated by Scott Donovan and Caleb K and featuring artists from Australia, New Zealand and Germany. Participating artists were asked to supply visual work in the form of limited edition ‘cover-art’ that broadly corresponded to their audio compositions. All tracks could be listened to on head phones within the gallery space. The exhibition sought to provide a range of diverse approaches to experimental audio composition at the same time drawing analogies between audio and visual practices.
