Media Lab Melbourne's 'Bus Station Poetry' & DJ Glitch

Each week in partnership with Media Lab Melbourne, Kingston Arts invites an artist to present a playful, interactive work in the courtyard between City Hall and Kingston Arts Centre, accompanied by a DJ. 

This week, artist Pierre Proske will show 'Bus Station Poetry', a LED display user-driven artwork, which transforms the act of idling into a creative, poetic word-play. Melbourne powerhouse, DJ Glitch, will also be spinning tunes alongside 'Bus Station Poetry', playing a mix of punk funk, old school electro, new wave disco and minimal tech-house.

Featuring burning renditions of Latin infused rock classics such as Oye Como Va, Black Magic Woman, Jingo Lo Ba and Soul Sacrifice; plus breathtaking delivery of guitar ballads including Europa and Samba Pa Ti, Soul Sacrifice captures and delivers the signature multicultural sound and spirit that is Santana.
