‹ Back to What's On HEXA: David Lynch’s The Factory Photographs

17 Feb 2017

HEXA is a sonic response to David Lynch’s The Factory Photographs, a collection of images Lynch took of disused factories and the ruins of industry in the USA, Poland, Germany and the UK.

Support from: Ashtray Navigations

The sound is created by Lynch collaborator Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart and Australian composer Lawrence English.

Their performance draws from the texture of Lynch’s images, their imagined spaces, and the spectral histories contained within them.

The effect is like “cascading low frequency pulses and tectonic plates of sound, suspended in cavernous cathedral-like spaces".

Premiered at the David Lynch: Between Two Worlds retrospective in Australia, HEXA explores the ability of sound to infiltrate, abrade and occupy the body.
