Delighted to host Action Pyramid, aka Tom Fisher, whose recent TakuRoku release opens the liminal space between real and imaginary worlds through subtle collaging, spatialisation and musical symbiosis. Also on the bill is London-based, Australian sound artist, Brigitte Hart, who explores the art of small sounds, sounds that can be imagined, and the memory of sound.
Working under the name Action Pyramid, Tom Fisher's projects vary from site-specific sound installation and headphone based works for galleries and museums, to experimental sound works, radio and music. Utilising a multitude of recording techniques, often aimed at exploring and re-interpreting the seemingly unnoticed and unheard elements of our surroundings, he looks to present compositional and spatial expressions of these phenomena in a way that attempts to offer up alternative perspectives regarding perceptions of scale, hierarchical bias and the interconnectedness of living things. He has performed and exhibited his work internationally and attended residencies in Iceland and the Finish arctic.
