“It’s an immersive and voyeuristic experience which I’m hoping fellow Melburnians will get a kick out of while they’re stuck at home,” says the red nail-polish wearing oddball. “I guess it’s kind of my way of bringing a musical performance to people under lockdown – who might be getting jaded of Zoom – and adding a pinch of feline finesse into the mix.”
Montgomery received grants from the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Fund and Creative Victoria to develop new works.
Montgomery lives in Preston sans pets and works in a tiny studio with faux fur on the walls and LED light strips. “It’s a psychedelic cocoon so I can pretend I’m anywhere my mind wants to be. I’ve found going to the park and seeing other people’s dogs having a good time is a simple but reliable source of joy,” he says.
Montgomery has made scores for games (Warhammer 40,000: Regicide, Wasteland Remastered), films (Time), and multimedia installations (currently The Parallel Effect – the recipient of the Graham F. Smith Peace Award and commissioned by Next Wave Festival).
