Veople + Agents of Confusion x Free the Genie
Get ready for a night of new works and bold art, with an experimental electronic work from Veople and experimental performance from Agents of Confusion in collaboration with band Free the Genie.
Audiences will experience an enigmatic performance of experimental and electronic sound as Veople perform and record a new sound experience as part of a larger conceptual work, soon to be transformed into a physical contemporary art installation.
Agents of Confusion will take to the stage alongside psych-groove band Free the Genie to present an experimental routine, continuing their interest in play and the absurd. The Agents will work with Brisbane-based dancer and choreographer Georgia Pierce as part of a residency here at HOTA to extend their intuitive movement/dance performance.
Veople is the collaboration between multi-disciplinary artist and musician Jay Jermyn and musician Julian Currie. Their music lies between an intersection of guitars and electronic production, forming atmospheric soundscapes with an undercurrent of house-oriented rhythms that instil a nostalgic feeling of euphoria.
The members, medium, visual components and direction of Veople is transient; the band’s purpose is to deliver thought-provoking work, not confined by location, structure or audience.
From presenting as a band at Bleach* Festival, to performing as an experimental music group, to exhibiting as a multi-media AC installation, Veople continues to surprise and push the boundaries of art and collaboration. This concert forms part of Veople’s most ambitious project to date.
About Agents of Confusion
Agents of Confusion is the collaborative practice of Gold Coast artists Adrienne Kenafake and Tessa Bergan. Through recorded and live performance, their work explores absurdist extensions of Gold Coast identities.
In 2018 they undertook a two-month residency at Palm Beach Library where they developed their first major body of work, Golden Breed. They have since performed and exhibited at a number of local galleries and were finalists in the 2018 BAM Art Prize.
