Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Duckworth Hullick Duo. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new art and new ideas, to boldly play where no one has played before.

RESONANCE in the DOME is a 21st Century audiovisual experience like no other. Through this world premiere the Duckworth Hullick Duo offer adventurous audiences audiovisual imaginings inspired by possible technological futures.

What will the newly developed musical instruments of the future look like?

Can real-time visuals be played by a performer?

RESONANCE is a unique interactive tabletop audiovisual and ‘musical‘ instrument created by Victorian Premier’s Award winner Dr. Jonathan Duckworth and his team at RMIT’s CiART Labs.

RESONANCE in the DOME features internationally acclaimed sound artist James Hullick performing a suite of three works specially composed for the RESONANCE instrument, performed in concert with four celebrated percussion members of the BOLT Ensemble.

BOLT percussionists who premiered the work were:

Nat Grant
Timothy Phillips
James Townsend
Hamish Upton

This trail-blazing event was first presented under the architecturally designed projection hemisphere of the DomeLab installed at RMIT’s Design Hub Gallery, elegantly set to amplify ‘Tron’–like synaesthetic virtual worlds.
