Can you hear them Toons?
Jonathan Heilbron (not so formally known as Toons), is an up and coming bass player who tends to spend a hell of a lot of time refining his tunes down at the Victorian College of the Arts.
This precise act has led to his first unique and mesmerizing solo exhibition being held at BUS Gallery in late September of this year.
Described as an "exploration in the fluctuating energies that can coexist within a relatively small space", Bassounds deals with the sonic architecture of specific spaces, directing and manipulating sounds to form new aural entities that exist unseen, in an attempt to bridge the gap between the physical presence of a work and the metaphysical experience it creates.
Although the concept may sound complicated, the simple contrast between the constant lighting and the improvised sound of the bass will continue to resonate and enclose around its viewers for the entirety of the exhibition.
Opening on the 22nd of September and running until the 11th of October, be sure to head to 117 Little Lonsdale St, to be immersed in the ebbing improvisations of this talented young artist.
