 Alethic (the modalities of truth) Possibly the most developed expression of my core practice to date!

Built in three versions at 2k for 16:9, 6k for panoramic and 12k for full 360 degree immersion. See 12k version here.  

Alethic is a live interactive performance of entirely original sound and vision. Gruchy plays an array of midi controllers but especially the unencumbered LEAP Motion interfaces that allow him to control sound and vision through hand movement and gesture. Twenty first century conducting. The music is a soundtrack of ambient dub and pysbient tracks combined with found vocals reflecting the philosophical theme. This vision is mostly mathematically generated combined with some real-time camera SFX The vision is scalable with version at 2k, 6k and 12k widths. Thus the work can be presented in a variety of modes.

QUOTES…………………………………. “A sumptuous visual and aural feast. I didn’t know where to look a lot of the time, but wherever I did look there was so much to see (and hear). Some of the passages of material were really gorgeous. My tastes veer to the minimal, so I enjoyed those passages the most (eg: the more abstract and geometric sequences). It was all very buzzy - a bit like being in somebody else's dream-state (which one of the sampled voices referred to).” Prof Simon Biggs | Director: South Australian School of Art Professorial Lead: Research Education | Creative Australian Research Centre for Interactive and Virtual Environments University of South Australia 

“Alethic 01 was an immersive wonderland, a trip without the chemicals, a delight for all the senses.” Geoff Cobham : Bluebottle Lighting : Artistic Director Patch Theatre

“What a special night at The Lab. An hour of total immersion, equivalent to a deep dive, tight, rhythmic, with high octane visual stimulation & a brilliant musical score. I loved the freedom to explore ideas which the performance ( & it felt like a performance, with Tim such an integral part & the “ hand of the Creator” a beautiful interplay) allowed. What a privilege to be in the audience.” Susan Armitage 

“Alethic arrives like a balm in our turbulent times. An immersive trip into sound and image from one of Australia’s leading artists working in digital media.” Garry Stewart : Director Australian Dance Theatre
