Under The Wire: A free film & music program at Monash University

A vibrant mix of music, film, and performance will be staged at Monash University’s Caulfield campus over three nights from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 October.

Under the Wire – Projections and Sounds was curated by James Hewson, Head of Film Programs at ACMI and is presented in association with Monash University and Melbourne Festival. Entry is free.

Electro soul project Alice Ivy will open the music program on Thursday 13 October. She was recently nominated for the 2016 Age Music Victoria Awards in the Best Emerging Act category.

Emerging musicians Alice Ivy, Saatsuma (pictured at top), OCDANTAR and DJ MonaGene will take to the stage, with new work from Australian documentary film makers Amiel Courtin-Wilson, Rick Charnoski and Bill Morrison.

The Under The Wire program will also feature sound curation and composition by the Australian Art Orchestra’s Peter Knight, sound master James Savage, and a series of live improvisations by students from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music.

Octdantar, the solo project of Joshua Delaney, will be live on stage Friday 14 October bringing to life his genre-bending production and kaleidoscopic tracks.
