A short experimental documentary told with a spontaneous composition on drums at the Breakwater in Newcastle, a site considered to be the first area of community activism in Australia It furthers an ongoing investigation pursued through the artist’s sound and video works with themes of survival and fragility within ‘loaded’ environmental and emotional spaces.
Havelock Stevens is an interdisciplinary artist based in Sydney.
Her background is in film, sound, philosophy and cultural studies. With a sturdy start as drummer in post punk bands she then moved towards observational documentary, video art, installation, performance art, improvisation/composition and sound design. At times she has been compelled to play a spontaneous composition on a full drum kit whilst fully submerged underwater.
Havelock Stevens performs in solo mode under the moniker of White Drummer. White Drummer creates spontaneous compositions as durational performance in different spaces and environments.
