Tuesday August 10th @ the Make It Up Club

Tonight, the MIUC focuses on recent developments in Melbourne improv with groups that feature some of the strongest emerging voices in the local scene. Young firebrand noisniks, Nic Tammens and Lloyd Honeybrook are joined by Australia's most respected avant violist, Erkki Veltheim, in a collaboration emphasising density, pointalism and low-end rumble. The human breath and it's sonic extensions are highlighted in Alice Hui-Sheng Chang and Rosalind Hall's duo, whose recent CD, From My Winter Snow Your Summer Fire Until My Autumn Rain Your Spring Sunshine is essential listening. And improv-genre polymath, Edryan Hakim leads Impvlse/Kontrol, where sounds of psychedelia, shoegaze, country-n-drone are cloaked in ambient blackness.
