Immerse yourself in the creative possibilities of technology with a breathtaking array of electronic music, multimedia art, and sick-as lasers in performances by mHz, Xenosine, No Plexus. Double Visions’s opening night on Friday June 21, will feature performances by New Zealand-based sound artist mHz and Tamil-Australian audio-visual artist Xenosine. mHz will present ‘Brutalist Noise Ensemble v2‘, an experimental performance piece that blends the physical and digital worlds. Simple structures of metal and wood are activated by electromechanical pulses, creating noises that glitch and bewitch. Xenosine will showcase ‘Tesseract’, a superimposition of lasers and video projections and sound. Like how Carl Sagan famously used the Tesseract to discuss quantum theory, this work interacts between two- dimensional and three- dimensional space, questioning the mechanisms of perception, existence and knowledge. Is your mind blown yet?

Saturday June 22 brings a new work by mHz and live show from No Plexus. mHz will be premiering ‘Cruise Missile Intersectionality‘ which meshes abstract audiovisual language with loud-and-proud political commentary. No Plexus, a genre-queer experimental electronic music duo consisting of artists No Compliments and Bec Plexus, have worked with renowned stage designer Emmanuel Biard to develop an immersive show, intertwining deep sarcasm and Y2K nostalgia, portraying a ‘coming-of-age’ narrative within a society teetering on the brink of climate catastrophe and war. Expect a sensorial assault of electronic sound, light and image.

While at Brisbane Powerhouse, you can also witness Melbourne artist Yandell Walton’s exhibition When We Are One, which will be taking over the Fairfax Studio for the entirety of June. Created with 3D models of plant life and Motion Capture, this work is an interrogation of human and plant symbiosis.
