Phantom Chips

Sound Offering IV

28 September 2019
4–5pm

Join Brisbane-based performer Phantom Chips, for the fourth edition of Sound Offering, Boxcopy’s monthly program that invites sound artists and experimental musicians to produce an evening of listening.

In this instalment at the IMA, see a performance by Phantom Chips, the alter ego of Tara Pattenden, followed by a discussion of her practice. Phantom Chips creates participatory performances and music compositions using her own DIY, wearable  instruments. The tactile, fabric-based electronic instruments enable new expressive ways to make sounds through movements and gestures—stretching, stroking and squeezing—inviting audience participation.

  • Partner:

    Sound Offering IV is presented by Boxcopy in partnership with the IMA.

    Phantom Chips (Tara Pattenden) composes and creates participatory performances with instruments she has designed and built by hand. Using an array of homemade electronic instruments, samplers, and wearable noisemakers, Phantom Chips invites the audience to play and manipulate sound with her.

    Pattenden is an instrument maker, performer and educator. She sells and designs synthesisers such as the Noisy BSTRD, Grim Beeper, and the Lerango Drone, and runs workshops in electronics and technology. She has been making noise and mess for over 20 years, performing internationally as a solo artist and in bands such as Monster Zoku Onsomb, Kunt, and VarioAir. She currently also performs with BodyVice (UK) and Goodiepal & Pls (DK).

The Artist As... Collaborator

With Emily Pethick

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
