Flux density

Knowles, Julian D., Fahey, Shane, & Rue, Rik (2012) Flux density. [Exhibition/Event]


Social Interiors (Julian Knowles, Rik Rue, Shane Fahey) are currently developing a major sound art project entitled Flux Density, in collaboration with a team of artists, focused on investigating the changing relationships between emerging digital technologies and traditional ‘obsolete’ analogue media. The project has two main components. – a curated compilation and a live performance. It is a large scale curatorial and performance project led by Social Interiors with assistant curators Joel Stern, Alessio Cavallaro and Shannon O’Neill. Presentation - International Symposium of Electronic Art. Social Interiors are one of Australia’s best known experimental sound ensembles. Project will consist of an online compilation of historic music emerging from the 80s cassette culture era, remix based works by Social Interiors, and work from new cassette labels established in a post internet era. Performance project will take place in Sydney and consist of Social Interiors in performance/collaboration with a range of well known artists. Partners include ABC Radio, ISEA, and Extreme Records.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Additional Information: Social Interiors was formed in 1984 primarily as a studio and recording project. Since 1993 it has become an intersecting space for three core artists Rik Rue, Shane Fahey and Julian Knowles. The group is dedicated to uncovering some of the unique character inherent in Australia’s aural landscape. Meticulous editing and treatment form the basis of their sound compositions. The works are essentially about blurring the distinctions between sound and sight/site via careful manipulation of sonic materials to create phantom and perhaps impossible acoustic spaces. The group’s live performances explore the creative possibilities of surround audio with real time performance through complex multichannel sound projection systems. Influenced by musique concrete, media cut-up, film sound, location sound, rock music production techniques and acoustic measurement tests, the group’s eclectic sound materials and compositional practices have attracted wide critical acclaim. Apart from their work in experimental music and the audio arts, the members of Social Interiors have collectively and individually been involved in record production, engineering and re-mixing.
