Four alumni of the 2021 MESS Professional Development course – Catherine Ryan, R. P. Downie, Reuben Lewis, and Tiffany Alwis – took to the stage of The Capitol – RMIT’s iconic theatre to perform an eclectic, genre-bending mix of live electronic music.
The scene was set underneath a canopy of extraordinary lighting, designed by students from the RMIT Digital Media’s Heightened Multisensory Experience studio. They presented audiovisual works composed especially for The Capitol – RMIT and its bespoke roof lighting system. From sublime to intense, by turn, the works create mesmerising, hypnogogic, exhilarating, brutal and overwhelming experiences. A wild and psychedelic ride.
Produced by Studio Leads Darrin Verhagen and Shaun Wilson, and Program Manager Ben Byrne
