Dylan Martorell: D'ameublement

Dylan Martorell
Dylan Martorell, Bin Gamelan2012

4 September - 11 October 2012
Switchback Gallery
Monash University Gippsland Campus
Curator: Francis E. Parker
Sound and installation artist Dylan Martorell is MUMA’s artist in residence at the Gippsland Centre for Art & Design for 2012. Martorell undertook the residency in two stages in April and May, building interconnected sound sculptures using waste materials gleaned from the locale. The exhibition restages the studio environment in the Switchback Gallery, animated by projected video documentation of music-making with GCAD students and the robotic percussion instrument workshops that Martorell conducted with Buddhist monks while on a subsequent residency in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand.
Named for French composer Erik Satie’s Musique d’ameublement or ‘furniture music’ – an early twentieth-century precursor to ambient music – D’ameublement transforms discarded remnants of household furnishings into Martorell’s characteristic musical assemblages.

Robotic percussion instruments where created with
Keith Urquhart - programming
Mat Valdman - Engineering
and Wil Campbell
