THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

Two-day in situ DIY wires workshop

August 16th & 17th 2008

Over the weekend Alan Lamb and David Burraston taught 20 artists from around Australia various techniques of making a musical instrument out of fencing wire. David Burraston demonstrated and taught how to build and attach ‘piezo’ microphone pickups to wires.

August 16th 2008 WIRED Concert

Our first public concert was held at the Cootamundra Creative Arts and Cultural Centre, and a provided a chance for our local community and visiting guests to see and hear what this wired stuff was all about. Sarah Last gave a presentation to the community about The WIRED Lab’s activities. Lamb, Burraston and Bradbury then gave performances. During the evening a special demonstration/performance was given by world renowned harmonic singer Dean Frenkel, who holds the Guinness world record for the longest sustained note (the record was set on the ABCTV Denton show in 2007).

Special thanks to the Cootamundra Creative Arts and Cultural Centre for the concert venue, and The White Ibis B & B for providing discounted accommodation and meals.
