Title: Saatchi with Rhubarb (Mobile Phone Software Application)
Author: Haines, C.
Publisher: British Now Exhibition
Publisher Place: Adelaide
Issue Date: 2011
Abstract: In the early 1990s Richard James, under the pseudonym Aphex Twin, released two collections of ambient electronic pieces aptly titled Selected Ambient Works. The collections can be seen as a destination the minimalist school channelled by Brian Eno travelled to, and as a key transitionary point for underground electronic music reaching more mainstream audiences. Saatchi with Rhubarb is an augmented musical work for mobile devices, played while taking in the Art Gallery of South Australia's exhibition British Art Now exhibition. The work heard is entirely unique as it uses the direction a person walks in the exhibition, their physical location within the gallery and how they hold their device, to dynamically alter and remix the ambient sounds of the gallery with Aphex Twin's seminal work Rhubarb.
