Guffond/Ekomane/Lewis - MUMA - 24 Jun 2017

SATURDAY 24th June 1PM MUMA


Jessica Ekomane (FR), Jasmine Guffond (DE/AUS) & Clara Lewis (SE) (editions mego)

Jessica Ekomane [FR/DE]
Jessica Ekomane was born in France. She now lives and works in Berlin. Her practice unfolds around sound installations and music. She creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. This informs her musical compositions which seek a cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmical structures.

Jasmine Guffond [AUS/DE]
Jasmine Guffond focuses on electronic composition across music and sound art contexts. Her practice spans live performance, recording and the capacity of sound installation to interrogate site.  Working with abstract sound as much as traditional musical forms to create a concordant relationship between a sound that holds emotive power and musicality, and a sensitive microscopic study of electro acoustic phenomena. She has recorded music for CD and 12inch vinyl releases with the Staubgold, Monika Enterprise and Sonic Pieces labels. A new album, Traced is due for release in July 2017 on Sonic Pieces.

Silje Nes [NOR/DE]
Silje Nes, Norwegian musician and sound artist. Her work was first known to the public with the release of two albums on British label FatCat Records. In June we welcome the release of her self-released 7-inch «Superimpositions of Metal and Air» on her own label Noko Ana. They feature two instrumental tracks combining electronic sound, field recordings, programming and the use of programmed kinetic sounding objects. Her music is a unique landscape, constantly moving yet always staying in place. The result is something resembling an organism, with a blurring of the line between technology and organic life. Taking interest in spacial and physical manifestations of sound, in her work she explores the creation of environments that will express a certain autonomy, removed from compositorial processes.

Oksun Ox/Snacks/Ruff Patch - Tote - 13 Jul 2017



Albert's Basement presents 
upstairs at The Tote Hotel
67-71 Johnston Street, Collingwood

July 13th
Doors at 8pm, $8 entry
Oksun Ox (NZ)
Snacks (Dale Gorfinkel, Allanah Stewart, Jen Callaway)
Ruff Patch (Tania Price, Lynton Denovan)

Oksun Ox's Ben Holmes from Auckland, NZ (The Hoolie buzzes /Drorgan /Spacesuit..) performs his one-man-band act OKSUN OX!: live finger beats, foot thumping, twanging theremin, hard out riffs, casio boogaloo, sound fx to the maximus + heeeeaps more. He stamps his foot & bellows a passionate croon. He plays keyboard notes with a plastic finger attached to the end of a tiny guitar. He pulls funky frown faces and tells off his children.

“this record is a classic slab of Stabbies-style tongue pressure.. the atmosphere is charged with articulate energy and mystery. What could be more ducky?” - Byron Coley (Wire Magazine)

"fantastic one man band act 'Oksun Ox' is like a mashup of the Skeptics, Residents and Brotown" - a friend

"He frowns cos it gets funky. It is odd, precious & unique music. Like a cross between Prince & Pumice." - Stefan Nevilee (Stabbies etc)
