Projection Animations with ACMI
We are looking to create a bit of “White Night” in Greensborough through the Tech School. The building itself has some great surfaces for a projection canvas and we are looking to light it up for the opening. In collaboration with our partners ACMI, this event took students from Greensborough College and St Helena College into Studio 2 of ACMI to have a hands on workshop creating animations to be projected at the opening event.
The students came to the session with a range of photographs on a USB. These included iconic images from their local area and things that are special to the student. Alongside this, the students created stop motion animations and animations using people. Reflections from the students involved highlighted the value of being able to work with industry professionals who could guide them through the process and present new ideas.
All this media was edited and combined together to build a bright and playful projection that will look spectacular projected on the Tech School building itself.
The Science of Sound Synethesis
This production engaged five students from Bundoora College in forming an ensemble to explore music composition using a range of recording, sequencing and performance devices. Over two days of exploration and composition the VET music students developed an understanding of electronic instruments and worked collaboratively work to design and perform a piece of music to be performed live.
In partnership with Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS), the students were able to have access to equipment and expertise that cannot be found elsewehere in the the world. MESS has a collection of some of the rarest and most valuable electronic instruments in existence and has the philosophy that these need to be used and enjoyed. Robin Fox, artist and director of MESS introduced the students to electronic music and how it fuses art, science and technology. This opened the students minds to new possibilities and a deeper appreciation of sound engineering.
In all, it was a stimulating two days of discovery and a lot of fun!
The culmination of the workshop will be a live performance of the students’ composition at the opening of the Tech School.
