Hextape and Jeremy Segal

Presented by PS and hearts of Darkness

Tues 20 December from 7pm

PS and Hearts Of Darkness present an immersive, spatialised listening experience of NZ/NT sound artist Hextape's new album >:) ("angry smiley") which explores the musicality and magical realism of MRI scanners. A multi-channel sound system fills the PS ground floor gallery to replicate the sonic experience that is an MRI, accompanied by projections. You're invited to lie down and experience a magnetic resonant imaging performance spanning contemporary classical, jungle, techno and noise.

Hextape is joined by Walyalup musician and sound artist Jeremy Segal for a live electronics set.

FREE ENTRY! BYO yoga mat or whatever you'd like to be comfy on the floor. PS ground floor gallery space is wheelchair accessible. There will be no strobes or strobing effects in lighting or projections. There will be no smoke or haze.

Doors: 7pm, music from 7:30.

Hextape (aka Bridget Chappell) is an award-winning artist working across dance music, contemporary cello, hacked sound technology, ungovernable space, hydrology, and literature. They DJ and produce music, create data-informed sound installations, write essays and poetry, and leave a trail of rave breadcrumbs wherever they go. Their releases '>:)' (Powertrip, 2022), 'Undertow' (2020), and '2 Fast 2 Furious' (Anterograde, 2019) received critical acclaim. They are currently artist in residence at Fremantle Arts Centre; they are not based anywhere and cultivate a network of cellos on loan in every town.

Jeremy Segal is a musician, sound artist and audio engineer. He is particularly interested in ambient and experimental electronic music and has recently explored gradual process and audible transformation on releases Plateaux and Four Footprints. In 2022 he worked predominantly with vocal sound material across two multi-channel works—Voice Rhythm AM Drone and Speak… Ah. Jeremy has performed alone and in collaboration at events including Audible Edge, Aesoteric at WA Museum Boola Bardip, Fremantle Biennale, Outcome Unknown and Weekend at Bernie’s.
