Bent Twisted and Upset

A collaboration with the Tasmanian Artist Blacksmith Association
which was part of the entertainment series for the MONA summer
market 2013 and the MONAFOMA festival 2014 both curated by
Brian Ritchie.
A 5 hr remix set - a group of blacksmiths were mic'ed up and
remixed into clingy clangy soundscapes while they worked.
Soundscapes also appeared in the 'Metal That Moves' art
exhibition at the Long Gallery 2013.
