Bugle Boy and the Electric Boogaloos

Just as the bugle called the troops from their slumber, a line is asked to mobilise. In this series of experimental videos and drawings, Sydney based artist Todd Fuller collaborates with conductor and brass musician Ryley Gillen. Together they create an interdisciplinary call and response.

In these works, drawing is activated through the form of live animation to perform alongside composition and live music, the pair create duets between their mediums in real time. Just as the bugle was used to signal action in the troops, here the artists undertake a contemporary song cycle, as unexpected artforms harmonise and advance.
