Hautology House sound game by severed heads frontman Tom Eliard is fantastic

"On March 1 2013, Adelaide Festival in association with ABC Arts presents Hauntology House, an online 3D music toy created by sound artist and Severed Heads frontman Tom Ellard.
Hauntology House is an interactive online music experience that will be housed on abc.net.au/arts for the duration of Adelaide Festival.

“Here, music is the living space rather than the walls, and in that space lives a collection of machines, animals and tunnels - the ghosts of my musical ideals."

"Music is the heart of all art whether visual or sound; the editing of a film, the composition of a painting, light in a photograph are all musical. The muse is everywhere and it’s churlish to keep a music album trapped in a sleeve or download. I’m not making a new box - I’m saying here’s another way you can go, and there are infinite ways beyond this," says Ellard.

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.

Where: abc.net.au/arts
When: Friday 1 March - Tuesday 30 April, 2013
Presented by Adelaide Festival in association with ABC Arts.
