PORTAL: Re-sounding house, part two

PORTAL: Re-sounding house, part two

Following his year in-residence at Old Government House, artist Luke Jaaniste presents PORTAL: Re-sounding house, part two an on-going sonic performance and installation project, as part of Mesmerism. Transforming the House into a gentle, resonant space of harmonies, PORTAL draws from Jaaniste's growing collection of vintage portable keyboards (Yamaha Portasounds manufactured in the early 1980s) each set to a simple tone or chord-pattern, which by themselves sound pretty cheesy, but when combined effect a mesmerising experience that can only be described as rich, immersive, and ambient. The sound installation can be experienced from 23 to 27 February, 10am – 4pm.

On Sunday 1 March, the sound installation will come alive from 2pm – 3.30pm as an ambient, ambulant live performance with contributing Brisbane artists performing on an array of keyboards placed throughout the lower level of the House, to coincide with the final day of Performance Now at QUT Art Museum.
