Ligeti's Poeme Symphonique - South Melbourne Town Hall - 30 Oct 2009

from Australian National Acadamy of Music:
-------------------------

Only 24 metronomes to go

The Australian National Academy of Music needs only another 24 metronomes for the special performance of Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes on Friday 30 October at 1pm.

So far the Academy has received 76 metronomes, some of which have been hand delivered while others that have come through the post.

One of the lenders has said that her metronome leads a dull life and is very excited about this opportunity to appear in public.

All metronomes on loan will be stars in this special performance.

Rarely performed, Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes is prepared by ten players under the guidance of a conductor.

Each of the 100 metronomes will be set up on the stage, and then they all will be wound to a set maximum and at different speeds. Once they are all fully wound and started simultaneously, the audience enters the Town Hall for this unique performance experience.

As the metronomes wind down one after another and stop, individual metronomes are more audible and the performance will end when the last metronome stopped ticking.

If you are able to lend your metronome and make this performance come to life, please call the Australian National Academy of Music on 9645 7911.

Ligeti Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes will be performed as part of the Haydn & Ligeti series on Friday 30 October, 1pm at the Australian National Academy of Music, Sth Melbourne Town Hall. Tickets: Donation

Hiddensounds - Horse Bazaar - 7 Nov 2009 (early)

forwarded from Jordan Lacey:

-----------------------

Horse Bazaar presents
hiddensounds, Infinite decimals & Bulke.

A night of sonic exploration at Horse Bazaar on Saturday the 7th November from 6pm to 9.30pm.

Hiddensounds (www.myspace.com/hiddensounds)
is the audio-scrawl exploration of Jordan Lacey. Frequency beats. Buttons holding secrets. Knobs and faders telling lies. Fretted instruments stroked. Silence. Noise. The sounds underneath. Three veg and mash. Happy Accidents. On the night exploring highways, rivers and crowds.

Amplified string duo Infinite Decimals (Barnaby Oliver / Don Rogers) (www.myspace.com/infinitedecimals)
produce waves of vertically complex sonic texture filled with phantom melodies and psychoacoustic surprises. Intellectual concentration, anti-rationality and sustained physiological effort obliterate mind-body duality to produce organic and richly detailed auto-compositions.

Bulke (Pradip Sarkar & Jordan Lacey) (www.myspace.com/bulkesounds)
is a blend of dub-tech, bassline, and krautrock, geared towards the dancefloor with tracks varying from midtempo electronic ballads to 130 BPM four to the floor beats. The band was built on the basis of a love for the electronic sounds coming out of Berlin. Bulke will be joined by Prem CJ on Electronic Tabla.

Paul Rodgers, a.k.a. Arnold Eye Irons, avant-projectionist & VJ will wave his fingers through all three acts, and DJ post-punk sounds on the in-betweens.

Where: Horse Bazaar
When: Saturday 7th November 2009
Time: 6 – 9.30 pm
Cost: $5

THE SMS INTERACTIVE MUSIC PROJECT

The SMS-Interactive Music (SIM) Project brings together a world class group of musicians and technicians to develop an improvised collaborative performance technique. This technique involves improvised musical performance, technology and the audience as co-collaborators.

By creatively subverting readily available computer hardware and mobile phone technology, matched with the skills of our musicians, we will bridge the divide between audience and performers. Our goal is to facilitate an open interaction that has a high level of musicianship, thereby creating a new musical experience.

Concept - Fred Rodrigues
Max MSP Wiz - Claire Herbert
Software Writer - Ankur Badwhar

Performers - Hirofumi Uchino AKA Defektro (self-made instruments), Kusum Normoyle (voice, electronics), Adrian Klumpes (keys, electronics), Abel Cross (bass, electronics), and the audience!

Alex Vivian is ALWAYS. He brings his voice as a primary musical source using two microphones together with two delay pedals, creating an eerie, jumbled, Dadesque musical experience.

“ALWAYS, Aolwayse, Orhlweighs, Al(daddy)ways is the ever evolving sound project of Alex Vivian. Wholly based on the element of chance and fragments of ideas (whether 'original' or stolen from overheard sounds from a sauna, a starved daddi eating his first meal in 2 weeks, meeting of slave/ master master slave, whyte label techno), ALWAYS creates a mess of thoughts and feelings that cancel each other out, complement, work up and flatten......” AV

Humbuckers - West Space - 15 Oct 2009



forwarded from Tim Catlin:

--------------------

"Humbuckers" October 15th, 6.30-8.30pm, West Space Gallery Level 1, 15 - 19 Anthony Street, Melbourne. $10


"Invented way back in the 1950’s, the humbucker is a guitar pickup that reduces hum and noise from electromagnetic interference. Ever since then guitarists have been finding ways of adding noise back into the signal…Feedback, distortion, altered tunings, guitar preparations, live-sampling, electronic modification and customised effects are some of the ways in which players have sought to circumvent guitar orthodoxy. “Humbuckers” showcases three local guitarists employing different strategies for extending and transcending the limitations of the common electric guitar."


Featured performers - David Brown (Candlesnuffer), Tim Catlin and Bonnie Mercer (Grey Daturas)

Tuesday October 13th @ the Make It Up Club

Ikko Taniuchi (Osaka) is a remarkable performance artist: exploring the nexus of sound, movement and visual spectacle, he confronts audiences with a rich feast of deconstructed Butoh and action painting, investing the performance with both visceral intensity and wry humor. For his performance at the MIUC, he will be collaborating with 2 masters of fractured, post-breakcore, electro-improv mayhem, Yuka Mikayama and John Harte, most famously associated with legendary group, Pig and Machine. And, to kick proceedings off, 2 of Melbourne's most sublime soloists in a premiere duo of acoustic sonorities teetering on the edge of feedback chaos.

This Wednesday the 7th of October @ Stutter...

  • PUMICE (NZ) - ''Stefan and Sugar Jon went to Whangamata for new years 1990/1991 telling their parents that they were getting a ride with friend Shelley's uncle but really they hitchiked. Picked up in Thames by a woman in a horse truck who only picked them up cos she thought they were girls. When the truck went round the narrow bendy hilltop roads the horse would kick the side and send the truck veering off into thick oncoming holiday traffic. After a few days in Whangamata it became apparent that Jon and Stefan's mothers had talked and worked out the lies. Jon called his mum for a growling and when he got off the phone Stefan said they should form a band called Pumice..... '' - Stefan Neville

There is an idea of New Zealand pop music that isn't pop music at all: Pin Group, Alastair Galbraith, Peter Jeffries and Antony Milton. Now, enters Stefan Neville, aka Pumice, and the most broken down, lo-fi approach to pop yet! One man band compositions and variations for small silver guitar, intercoms, endless cassette, chord organ, spring reverb, buzzbox, drums and voice. The struggle between sinking and swimming, swallowing water and going to the toilet either way since 1991.

  • OREN AMBARCHI/ROB MAYSON/MATT 'SKITZ' SANDERS - A head-on collision of ferocious and blisteringly brutal drumming from Matt 'Skitz' Sanders with super heavy low end psychedelics from Oren Ambarchi and Rob Mayson.

  • GILLES AUBRY (CH / DE) - Gilles Aubry is a Swiss sound artist, composer & musician. He uses field recordings, computer programming, surround sound, hacked electronics and improvisation to create live performances, sound installations, CD and radio pieces. His work is informed by personal investigations on formal, perceptual and anthropological aspects of sound production and reception, including auditory perception, space representation, site specificity, cultural accoustics and streams of information. Gilles Aubry has been involved in numerous collaborations with international artists throughout Europe, USA, Russia, Asia and the Middle East since 1995.

Undue Noise presents ARTEFACT


Undue Noise presents ARTEFACT
Sat 10 Oct 8pm $10
Old Fire Station View St Bendigo


Your only chance to hear the full version of the Artefact Tour in Victoria. Last week's Stutter performance was just a teaser. And Bendigo isn't that far away.

Melbourne field recording based sound artists Camilla Hannan, Thembi Soddell, and Tarab (aka Eamon Sprod) recently visited Adelaide, Alice Springs, Darwin and Perth to record and perform before returning to Victoria. They developed a sonic map reflecting the vast sonic contrast that can be found throughout Australia, their individual perceptions of their journey, and their distinctly separate approaches to sound performance and composition. Their performances included the Totally Huge Music Festival in Perth, including a live to air performance on ABC radio’s New Music Up Late show on Classic FM.

Thembi Soddell is originally from Bendigo and is about to embark on her second international performance tour (17 gigs in Europe with cellist Anthe Caddy). Her volatile sonic worlds morph, shift, rupture and dis-rupture into filmic atmospheres with a distinctly disquieting edge. Contorted into unreal environments and luscious masses of sonic textures, her sound palate sources field recordings, instruments and electronics to be suggestive but often unidentifiable. Her compositions exploit the dynamic extremes, toying with the listeners’ sense of expectation and generating anticipatory suspense. "Soddell's work with dynamics is extremely accomplished, alternately forcing close attention and then rewarding it with shocking explosions of activity that bring any absent-minded trains of through right back into a brutal present" http://cajid.com/thembi http://www.myspace.com/thembisoddell

Camilla Hannan digitally processes raw field recordings into abstracted representation of a site. She is interested in the way field recordings become 'essences'. These manipulated sounds may not be recognisable in their source, but as sonic textures, which become iconic representations of a particular time and place. "A very visceral experience indeed, one that both teased and tormented the senses..." http://www.camillahannan.com

TARAB (aka Eamon Sprod) has been working on the fringes of the Melbourne sound world for the last eight years, primarily examining the interplay of field recordings and sounds generated from found objects. His work explores the possibilities of personal chartings and reactions to the urban environment, revelling in the decay and detritus to be found there. Interested in more than documentation, tarab attempts to sonically trigger, form, and recreate the interior environ- ments which occur through our interaction with the commonplace and often overlooked. "tarab reinterprets the physical detritus of the landscape within a hypothetical topography where dirt, soot, and smog emerge as privileged materials, in to which he has grafted the potential for a transcendent response". http://www.23five.org/tarab http://www.myspace.com/tarab3058
