ELISION Ensemble performance of Matthew Sergeant's Lichen (2016), Courtesy of RMIT University Art Collection, Melbourne, Australia. Used with permission.

Lichen (2016) was commissioned by ELISION Ensemble (Australia) with funds generously supplied by the RMIT Gallery, Melbourne. The piece was premiered at RMIT Storey Hall, Melbourne Australia on 21st September 2016 by Daryl Buckley (solo electric lap-steel guitar). The research content of the work explores philosopher Karen Barad's notion of 'intra-action' - [t]hat is, in contrast to the usual ‘interaction,’ which assumes that there are separate individual agencies that precede their interaction, the notion of intra-action recognizes that distinct agencies do not precede, but rather emerge through, their intra-action.’ (Barad 2007: 33) - as a compositional space of operation.

This document presents VIDEO DOCUMENTATION of the piece in performance.

Presented by RMIT Gallery in collaboration with SIAL (Spatial Information Architectural Laboratory) Sound Studios, and recorded for inclusion in the RMIT Sonic Arts Collection.
