Space Cast is a music and art exchange created by Bec Armstrong in response to the isolation and disconnection we have faced in Melbourne during the COVID-19 pandemic. This mix series aims to support local artists, exploring the idea of space through music and art in an online platform.
I will be creating an original piece of art in response to the mix and a run of limited edition prints of the artwork will be available for purchase online. All profits from the prints sold will be split between the artists involved in each release.
Although there are many negative things that have come from this time, one positive recurring theme is the space, peace, time and freedom many creatives have experienced during isolation. The concept of this exchange is to explore this new found space in the mind and the body. To turn down the noise, to tune in or tune out, to explore music that helps us slow our heart rates, contemplate, relax, and feel deeply. Music that aids the exploration of our subconscious, helps us to feel more connected and grounded, or lets us tune out and take a break from reality.
