Banana Sunday with DJ Chris Bennie | radical recreation on the GC

Banana Sundays is a monthly social sound series which sees The Walls present sound artists, artists who play with sound and projections, VJs and noise makers.

It’s a unique opportunity to go a bit bananas before the start of the working week, and to indulge in some delectable delights as audio and visual currents flow in tune with the Coral Sea on our doorstep.

This month, the event takes place Sunday 23 August and the special guest is Chris Bennie. Chris is a New Zealand-born artist and DJ, living and working in Mermaid Beach, who makes videos, installations, photographs and sculpture. He also collects spacey, emotionally-charged techno records. Since moving to Australia in 1999, Chris has played at numerous cultural events including Collidescope 1 + 2, Gold Coast City Gallery (2003); Under The Influence, QUT Art Museum (2008); Temperature 2, Museum of Brisbane (2010); and App Rep Comp, Fish Lane Studios (2013).

Chris is also a Member of the Board of Directors of The Walls; and a beard gardening enthusiast.

The event is cash only, come as you are and no-one will be turned away. As well as Chris Bennie working the DJ and projection angle, there’ll be music and moving mash-ups, refreshments, beats, vision and badminton. Of course, there will be badminton.

This Sunday 28 August from 3.00 – 7.00pm. Entry is $5 (kids free). The Walls is located at 4/18 Mountain View Avenue, Miami.
