Resonance in the Dome

RMIT artist/designer and CiART Director, Dr Jonathan Duckworth and composer James Hullick (the Duckworth Hullick Duo) create a unique real-time audiovisual performance using the Resonance table performed in the DomeLab. Dynamic digital synaesthetic audio and visual interplay under the Dome will be accompanied by Hullick scores for members of the BOLT Ensemble.

Resonance is an interactive tabletop audiovisual instrument created by Duckworth and his team at the CiART lab (Creative Interventions, Art and Rehabilitative Technology) at RMIT University’s Centre for Game Design Research. Resonance promotes collaborative and playful modes of interaction between small groups of performers standing face to face around the display. The movement and manipulation of objects, touch and gesture on the display generates sonic perturbations, pulsing visual lines and glowing fragmented geometries displayed on the table and projected on the ultra-high resolution (4K) (4096 x 4096 pixels), 6m wide immersive, hemispherical display horizontally suspended over the audience.

This exclusive intimate event will provide audiences with a rich sensory and immersive experience unlike any other.

Resonance is supported by a Synapse Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant through the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its Arts funding and advisory body. This project is presented in partnership with CiART, JOLT Arts, the RMIT School of Media and Communication Centre for Games Design Research as part of Design & Play
