REV ORCHESTRA – Under the guiding influence of Robin Fox, Phil Dadson and Greg Jenkins, the premiere public performance of the REV Orchestra will highlight the overlap between the virtual and the real as digital oscillators meet resonant bodies. All members of the REV orchestra are QUT students involved in the REV postgrad and undergrad programs. The instruments they’ll be playing will have all been specially created for this performance.
