The Category is…
Part laboratory, part sideshow-alley realness, The Category is… is BIFEM’s first ever immersive platform that invites audiences into an array of simultaneous activities across the Saturday of the festival. From individual audience immersion VR experiences to group participatory installations for 20 audience members, this suite of participatory works is an amazing collection of new explorations into the very nature of music and ritual, and remarkably all are FREE!

SPEAKING SPACES: A PLAYER LED COMPOSITION (2018) WP
Lachlan Powell’s Speaking Spaces is a truly exploratory work: an environment as instrument has been created with the gaming software Unreal Engine, allowing the player not only to learn the secret sounds of this other-world, but to synthesise their own compositional form through their individual choices in space and time. The composer will be present to answer your questions about this composition you can literally play.
