On Tuesday, Crispi and Mick will be speaking with Dylan Martotell about his upcoming exhibition at Goodtime Studios with Sky Needle and Big Yawn.

Ad hoc and spontaneous even amid fine attention to detail, Dylan Martorell's work with musical sculpture has yielded installations that offer instinctive and immediate joy alongside subtler reflections upon waste culture, tradition, diaspora and globalisation. On April 11th, he will be inhabiting the exhibition space at Goodtime Studios for a one-off installation/performance, immersing attendees in a world of clangour, smoke, chimes and uncannily prosaic mysticism. Also performing will be homemade improv junk band Sky Needle, and digital/physical amalgamators Big Yawn.

Dylan has worked exhibited extensively around the world over the course of the last decade, receiving in 2012 an invitation to participate in India's Kochi-Muziris Bienniale and conducting a 2009 residency at Jogjakarta's RoomMate Gallery. Local exhibitions of his work have been hosted by The National Gallery of Victoria, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Utopian Slumps and Gertrude Contemporary, among others.

In November of 2014, Dylan worked in collaboration with Junk Mnemonic to frame his work within the context of a Melbourne band-room. 'The Artist Is Not Present' saw him performing with local acts Tesselate and Isaari to deliver three fully automated musical sets at The Tote Hotel. The success of this re-contextualisation of Dylan's work spurred thoughts of another similar event in a larger space, allowing of a more ambitious architectural inhabitation.
