Sound Painting Workshop
Get ready to immerse yourself in a multi-sensory art-form which uses bodily gestures and sounds to orchestrate a composition, spontaneously conducted by the sound painter and composer, Tim O’Dwyer. Participants will be cued to make a sound or strike a pose, leaving much to specificity and chance, to recreate the bustle and spirit of Little India.
Tim O’Dwyer is an Australian saxophonist, improviser and composer, and has been a lecturer and Head of Music at LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, since 2004. Over the past 25 years, Tim has been a prolific performer and collaborator traversing jazz, improvised and experimental music, contemporary classical music and cross disciplinary projects, and regularly performs throughout Australia, Asia and Europe. Tim is currently a member of the two most prestigious and established contemporary music ensembles in Australia: ELISION Ensemble (since 1994) and The Australian Art Orchestra. His ongoing projects include: METASAX; the international collaborative project: The Fold, with ensembles currently based in Cologne (DE) and Singapore; and his soundpainting ensemble: Erik Satay & The Kampong Arkestra based in Singapore.
Tim holds a PhD in composition and philosophy from the Queensland University of Technology with his research drawing links between the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, composition and improvisation.
