Jack Prest was recently in Studio 1 working on the development of his (as yet untitled) new interdisciplinary performance project. The development came about through partnership with Studios 301 and with support from Create NSW via their projects grant.
The session featured a series of collaborations with Nicholas Meredith (Kcin/Spirit Level), Dave Rodriguez (Godtet/Sampa The Great), Ben Freeman (The Die Youngs), Jerrol Renaud (The Goods) and Claire Edwardes, Jason Noble and Freya Schack-Arnott from contemporary classical group Ensemble Offspring.
Jack put the players through a series of improvised tasks responding to various compositions, sonic sketches, ambient noises and field recordings.
Jack also recorded and collaborated with dancer Azzam Mohamed and visual artist Joe Wilson and Chanelle Collier further developing the interdisciplinary side of the project. Jack Garzonio was assistant engineer for the session.
This is the first project from a new Arts Initiative by Studios 301, keep an eye out for more projects over the coming year.
