Chamber Made Opera, Speak Percussion, Aphids & Champagne Valentine

EXILE

An interactive music video, EXILE iPad App combines the exquisite drama of Helen Gifford’s chamber opera with the extraordinarily textured generative visuals of cult digital media artists Champagne Valentine.

The EXILE iPad App is a major co-production between Aphids and Chamber Made Opera and is the ultimate dramatic synthesis of Greek tragedy, advanced digital media, new mobile technologies and contemporary music.

In December 2010, Aphids launched the Exile iPad app, hosting supporters in an exclusive event at Fed Square to celebrate the occasion. Attendees enjoyed sacrificial-inspired dishes prepared by Aphids’ organic catering sponsors Fresh Fork, and beverages by Mad Fish Fine Wines and Moritz. EXILE went live to iTunes on the 10th of December with featured previews of the EXILE App animated interactive experience illuminating Fed Square atrium and courtyard screens.

Aphids acknowledges the people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the land upon which we work. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
