Since February, Brisbane Powerhouse has been home to the River City's latest festival: ΩHM (pronounced "ohm"). Filled with music and art, it's all about pushing the boundaries while celebrating sound, tunes and performance — a "festival of other music" is what the New Farm venue has badged it, too, and fittingly.

Thanks to a program curated by Room40's Lawrence English alongside Brisbane Powerhouse Arts Program Director Brad Spolding, ΩHM hasn't been lacking in highlights; however, its triple bill on Friday, March 31 with Robin Fox, Yann Novak and mHz promises something truly special. Audiovisual artist Fox, Los Angeles-based composer Novak and Iranian sound artist mHz are teaming up for a night showcasing three stunning large-scale audiovisual creations.

Accordingly, the evening will host the Australian premiere of Fox's Triptych straight from UNSOUND KRAKOW, featuring three RGB laser projectors working in synchronicity. If you've seen his past works — Night Sky for Brisbane Festival, Aqua Luma for Mona Foma 2021, BEACON for Mona Foma 2022 and MONOCHORD for Rising Festival 2022, for instance — you'll know you're in for something special.

As for Novak, he'll be using sound and light to explore how both can focus one's awareness on their experiences, as informed by his partial colour blindness and dyslexia. And, the New Zealand-based mHz will take inspiration from material and architecture to hone in on sound and light production.
