THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS
sonic electronics + live video
What can we learn about a person through their selfie? Creating an audio experience that suggests an abstract, technologised mindscape, The Amplified Elephants present Self Seekers, a show examining ‘selfie’ culture and the longer historical arc of the ‘self portrait’ in the context of the unique ways each person listens to the world around them.
First developed by The Amplified Elephants in 2015, with versions performed in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Melbourne (2017 and 2018), Self Seekers is a multidisciplinary electronic work featuring live video, abstract sound and performance.
In 2018 the ensemble presented the work for The Festival of Live Art, and have since further developed and extended the work to an hour in length.
