Cat Hope and Tina Havelock-Stevens (White Drummer) have a collaborative audio/visual work currently exhibiting at Homeat735 Gallery in Sydney, NSW. The work, entitled 32.9105 Degrees South Interoperational Solution 1 is decribed as: “… White Drummer and bass artist Cat Hope created this video work as a remote collaboration: it provided them with an opportunity to match locations in their homes as opposed to meeting in a so called “purpose built” venue in another city. This solo solo duo is a little bit karaoke, noise, rock and what we do to pass the time on the weekend…” . The work is in the gallery until early next month. There is an intersting review here.
