Ground Level Foyer / 11pm - Midnight 

FEED is a work for a solo drummer and feedback that was in development at Testing Grounds and the Brunswick Mechanics Institute in Melbourne from 2017-2018. Microphones on each of the drums are fed through digital processors, and many layers of the amplified and affected sounds are fed out through the speaker system; enveloping the performer and audience in a slowly evolving feedback loop. Audio feedback occurs when a loop exists between an audio input (for example with a microphone) and an output (a speaker). FEED explores how constant re-amplification of the same sound makes it bigger, louder and harder to ignore. Feedback can sound loud, soft, strong and vulnerable.

It’s a slow reveal, and it gradually increases in speed.  It becomes more than just the dialog of a drum set
