Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

VI­O­LIN­IST Jon Rose has re­turned to Perth for a Tura New Mu­sic 10-day artist in res­i­dency, fea­tur­ing a se­ries of sonic dis­tur­bances with Big Ball Out­doors.

Big Ball Out­doors sees a huge white ball pushed, heaved, thrown and rolled around in the crowd, with the mo­tion ma­nip­u­lat­ing its out­put of sound.

“The tech­nol­ogy is com­plex and has been de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the STEIM Cen­tre in Am­s­ter­dam,” Rose said.

“The ball is im­pres­sive in it­self and is laced with all sorts of data har­vesters such as ac­celerom­e­ters, GPS units and anemome­ters, but it is the amaz­ing sound world that is cre­ated through all th­ese ran­dom vari­ables that is so rich and unique.”

Big Ball Out­doors is a free event at Perth Cul­tural Cen­tre and will be near the State Li­brary of WA pond at 12.30pm, Wed­nes­day, March 25 and on the WA Mu­seum rear lawn at 7pm, Fri­day, March 27.
