Comment News (Gosnells) - - Front Page - Lucy Jarvis

SOUNDS of the uni­verse have in­spired a mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion at the Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre this month.

Per­for­mance artists Gen­re­fonix will stage Wal­brininy on Au­gust 11 and 12 as part of Na­tional Sci­ence Week ac­tiv­i­ties at the cen­tre.

The per­for­mance will take the au­di­ence through the venue and in­clude the ar­rival of an alien and space­ship.

The cen­tre’s lead as­tronomer Rick Tonello, Noon­gar Elder Noel Nan­nup and the Mo­orditj Mob dancers, in­clud­ing Thorn­lie’s Michael Spratt, will form the wel­come party for the vis­it­ing alien.

The show will in­clude sci-fi film se­quences, live mu­sic and In­dige­nous sto­ry­telling to un­cover a world of spi­ralling neu­tron stars and demon­strate how sci­en­tists ‘lis­ten to the uni­verse’ fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of grav­i­ta­tional waves.

The Noon­gar con­cept of ‘wal­brininy’ means to­tal well­be­ing, all en­com­pass­ing, ev­ery­thing con­nected and right.

In the show it is a fic­tional planet that ex­isted 130 mil­lion years ago.

Gen­re­fonix is an arts mu­sic col­lec­tive com­pris­ing Paul Rowe, Bren­dan Gi­ambazi, Priam Bacich, and Peter Fin­kle.

Cre­ative Will Ax­ten founded the col­lec­tive in 2016 and has 25 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence as a film­maker, dig­i­tal artist, sound en­gi­neer and mu­si­cian.

The Grav­ity Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre is also host­ing the Math­sAlive ex­hi­bi­tion un­til Novem­ber 7.
