This year, the MIUC's annual contribution to Melbourne Fringe is curated by the inimitable musical provocateurs behind Venting Gallery.
With a focus on performers from the underground DIY no-core scene that has been fomenting in the Blue Mountains over the last decade, this year's MIUC Fringe Fest promises to be as uncompromising as always.
Presented over 2 consecutive Tuesday nights (September 30 and October 7), MIUC Fringe 2008 features groups old and new spanning the sonoverse of avant-improv, from Melbourne to Victoria to Australia to the World to the Sonoverse.

POLY-DUOISMS: Featuring 3 familiar duos from the underground fields of breakcore, shitcore and noise in very unfamiliar contexts. As the title of this show suggests, be prepared for some rhizomatic, aural, head-fuckery with 2 partners, 2 ''rock'' instruments, and a cosmos full of traditions to be dealt with.
- UNAUSTRALIANS featuring: Ein (guitar) and Aus (vocals and drummachine)
- GO GENRE EVERYTHING featuring: Jen Tait (percussion) and Zach von Bamberger (guitar)
- PIG & MACHINE featuring: Yuka Mikayama (vocals and drummachine) and John Harte (guitar)
