del lumanta is a sydney based artist, musician, dj, educator and organiser. they are interested in skillshare and intersections between art and music through independent community processes. they coordinate double vision, a series of free-form gigs showcasing the practice of diy, sound and ‘other’ musicians that was recently awarded through the arts & cultural project fund from create nsw and the red rattler theatre, marrickville to further support the development and presentation of new work by queer artists of colour.
Through their solo and collaborative music/sound projects they have supported Klein, Caterina Barbieri, Lucy Cliche, William Basinksi, Lawrence English, Rui Ho, Blues Control, Deerhoof, Container, Opal Beau, Cakes Da Killa, le1f, la dosha, aisha devi and more. Their experimental works are varied and curious and have been presented at Dark Mofo, Vivid, Next Wave and Sydney Festival. they currently facilitate new age noise, a free electronic music production workshop program for young women, trans and non-binary youth from western sydney at information and cultural exchange, parramatta.
