Tom Ellard is currently
a media arts lecturer at COFA-UNSW. He has had a significant career as
the front man and creative leader of Severed Heads, the seminal
Australian electronic group who were the forerunners for pairing
electronic music with computer-generated imagery.
From March 1
to April 30 you can access Hauntology House on abc.net.au/arts to
reassemble old tape machines, meet manic rabbits and find a purely
abstract place where vision and sound act together as music.
When: Friday 1 March - Tuesday 30 April, 2013
Presented by Adelaide Festival in association with ABC Arts.
