Super Critical Mass (Julian Day and Luke Jaaniste) activate the Maiwar Green outside GOMA with The Federation Handbells in Open Plans: Coordinating Space 2015-16. Collaborating with a group of local participants, they present a textured ambient experience that merges sound, space and social relations. The Federation Handbells are managed by Museum Victoria on behalf of Creative Victoria.
Super Critical Mass formed in 2007. Describing themselves as ‘an ongoing sonic arts project’ interested in the creation of ‘evolving sound fields’, the group creates compelling participatory experiences utilising public spaces and temporary communities brought together for the performances. The works are site-specific and ephemeral, deliberately crossing boundaries between performance, music and art. They are also highly participatory, with audience members often invited to take up musical instruments, found objects or use their own voices.
