Cy Gorman is a Transmedia and AV artist, writer, director & producer. He released his debut AudioVisual album in April 2015 on Heard & Felt Music to international recognition and accolades from the likes of Gilles Peterson (UK/BBC), DJ Jazzy Jeff (USA) & Richard Kingsmill (JJJ/AUS). Described by Kingsmill as “a multitalented beast” spanning art in public space/cyberspace, contemporary animateuring, projection mapping, experiential interarts design and transnational social engineering.In 2014 Cy was invited to present his choreographic production Animus at the World Dance Alliance Global Summit in France. Animus focused on phenomenological & corporeal enquiries towards questions of what it means to view the human body as ‘technology’ utilising principles of magnetoreception.
His work has received recognition in the areas of Audiovisual Psychology & Emotional and Kinaesthetic Ontology being invited to present at the 2015 Postgraduate RMIT Research Exchange and the 2015 inaugural Contemporary Emotions Research Network in Sydney.
He was amongst the final round selection for the 2015 biennial APRA professional development awards as a contemporary jazz composer. Cy has recently begun working with Cyborg activist and artist Neil Harbission. Their work is focused on the theoretical & performative language of integrated sonochromatic audio & visual data and they hope to perform their work to animals in the forest and to transmit it to outer space. The concept of simultaneous interdependent origination of both identity and environment is a key component in Gorman’s research & practice.
