Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey
Longterm collaborators Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey are artists who create unexpected situations for listening. Their work is driven by a curiosity and questioning about listening in human culture and seeks to evolve and engage with new processes and audiences, through public and participative interventions.
In 2017, their work Five Short Blasts was presented at Brighton Festival UK and at Theater der Welt, Hamburg. Their new work, Between 8 and 9, commissioned by Asia Topa and ChamberMade Opera, was presented at Castlemaine State Festival and Melbourne Recital Centre; and their sound/vibration work for Imagined Touch was presented at Sydney Festival. In October, their interactive public art work, the megaphone project, will be presented at Sonica in Glasgow, and in November, their new installation, The High Ground, will be presented at ArtsHouse Melbourne.
