THIS FRIDAY: Decibel - Occam: The Music of Eliane Radigue

Decibel are now in their second week of their residency here at PICA, workshopping their new piece Hexa II, created collaboratively with two huge names in new music - Eliane Radigue and Carol Robinson. Their concert on Friday will premiere this new piece along with two other compositions by Eliane.

The last Decibel concert at PICA, Anime, SOLD OUT- so get your tickets quick to avoid missing this breathtaking show!

The concert will be vastly different to previous Decibel shows, audiences can expect an intimate, meditative listening experience, where listeners are encouraged to feel the minute sounds with their whole body. Using only acoustic instruments, Decibel will create an electro, synth-style sound that will reverb through the galleries.

Presented by TURA and PICA as part of TURA’s 2015 Scale Variable series.

Dead Ringer Opening Night

Join us for a very spooky opening party for Dead Ringer on Friday 13 November. With suitably eerie live performances from internationally acclaimed turntable artist Lucas 'Granpa' Abela, Dead Ringer artist & DJ Kynan Tan and an outdoor bar, the only thing unlucky about this Friday the 13th is you if you miss it! The night kicks off at 6pm, with the exhibition being launched by Dr Christina Lee, lecturer in Communication and Cultural Studies at Curtin University and scholar of ghostly spaces.

Fri 13 Nov, 6pm - 9pm
