Renowned New York composer David Shea will perform his electronic masterpiece The Art of (Sampled) Memory within the intimate surrounds of ACMI's Cinema 1 at Federation Square. A hybrid mix of sound and image, Shea will provide a fragmented soundtrack to Johan Grimonprez's filmic journey into airplane hijacking and terrorism Dial History as well as selected newsreel footage.

Heavily active in the downtown New York experimental club scene in the mid to late eighties and having worked with such avante garde musical greats as John Zorn, Mark Ribot, Anthony Coleman and Mr Bungle, Shea has dedicated himself to exploring the interconnecting lines between sonic styles, histories and mediums, through combining the use of samplers and live musicians.

Currently based in Brussels, Belgium, Shea has made a greater shift in recent years towards a wider range of projects with classical musicians, folk musicians, video pieces, collaborations with electronic dance music makers, and solo sampler work both in performance and recording works for dance and film.
