A great day had at the launch of the Community Garden at Narwan Village in Armidale. SVM there to document the day’s activities. Costa Georgiadis from ABC TV’s gardening show was our special guest. Music, food and a tremendously generous community spirit for the whole day. SVM has been commissioned by Post Grad researcher from UNE, Katherine Wright to help capture the story of how the garden contributes to the revitalisation of the open grounds near the village.

SVM is collaborating on a music and visuals performance at the Black Dot Music Store’s Red Rug Session on May 28th.

Dave Eddy is a guitarist/composer who is experimenting with the use of projected visuals to accompany his improvised compositions. He will present a six part work entitled Festival of Delusion. We’ll use Resolume Avenue4 – the VJ software package which allows Dave to trigger changes in the projection from a laptop in sync with the pieces he is playing. We’ll also experiment with using midi controllers to trigger cues – a keyboard, foot controller and drum pad. An exciting new direction for SVM, venturing into experimental performance.

Lorina and I are re-cutting a longer version of My Grandmother’s Country for screening on NITV as part of the Our Stories Our Way series. This means extending it to a 15 minute version. Very exciting to see that the film has attracted interest.

I well and truly binged on taking photos of street art in Melbourne recently, both in the city laneways and around Fitzroy. A lot of great work in so many styles. So much more out in the suburbs for the next trip there. As interesting as the whole works are, some times the detail stands out. The piece pictured would only be about 20cms high and 30cms wide.
