Poletopra - Tote - 1 Jan 2011

(forwarded from Sean Baxter)
----------------------

Saturday, January 1st, 2011 (New Years Day) @ The Tote, Melbourne

Kicking off the new year in eclectic style at Melbourne's home of punk rock, with the visceral brutality of the amazing Pateras/Fusinato duo project, Poletopra; the sublimely, fractured beauty of Francis Plagne's band with strings; and a double floor tom, sub bass frequency beating solo from myself:

Hungover, brutalized by public stupidity? Can't remember what happened last night? That's OK! The Tote is open for business NEW YEAR'S DAY and POLETOPRA, FRANCIS PLAGNE and SEAN BAXTER will be sonically curing your injured synapses, with, well, possibly more injury!

POLETOPRA is the combination of visual art iconoclast MARCO FUSINATO (guitar/electronics) and all around composer/electronics whacko ANTHONY PATERAS (analogue synth) in searing duo format. Due to busy international schedules, local appearances are rare for this group, so what better way to continue the count down for the Mayans than with the sounds of apocalypse!

FRANCIS PLAGNE is the acclaimed pop introvert/ all around musical know-it-all who quietly entraps his audiences with delicate melodies and fragile arrangements. Joined with full band and strings, his live shows are a rare gem.

SEAN BAXTER is THE poet of Melbourne avant sound, and has been an on stage regular at the Tote since the early 90s in guises such as the Throwaways, Bucketrider, Embers, his duo Valerio Tricoli and SxSxSx. He even has a photo behind the bar. As head honcho of the Make It Up Club, his speeches are almost as famous as his internationally famous shitcore percussion stylez.

This is an all-star bill guaranteed to cleanse the mind and feed the ears on the day after humanity reaches its yearly low. What do you do on New Year's Day anyway?

Tuesday December 21st @ the Make It Up Club

In the final concert for MIUC's 2010 season we have a ripper of a show that encapsulates our philosophy of bringing together improvisers from across time and space, experience and idiom. A debut duo from two iconoclastic guitarists of Melbourne's avant scene: MIUC founder and free improv veteran Ren Walters joined by firebrand punk-jazz skronkmaster, Troy Naumoff. And a new trio comprising three rising stars of the avant classical scene with improv chops to burn. MIUC returns on January 18th, 2011.

Troy Naumoff (guitar) and Ren Walters (guitar)
Aviva Endean (reeds), Ryan Williams (recorders) and Matthew Horsely (percussion)

Tuesday December 14th @ the Make It Up Club

Gridish is a novel approach to realtime processing devised by John Jacobs in which one is forced to wonder what happens when four performers connect without a signal in a feed-forward critical mass of no-input hazard. Harriet Morgan debuts her new solo project. And the Spasmoslop is back with sonic mayhem.

  • Gridish, featuring John Jacobs, Ceri Hann, Steve Law and Marco Cher-Gibard (feed-forward loop processing)
  • Harriet Morgan (solo bruitism)

And KNOB, a post-psych, noise-prog improv project featuring some of the great experimental musicians associated with Bar Open.

This Wednesday the 1st of December @ Stutter...

  • UNDECISIVE GOD
    Undecisive God is the solo experimental music project of Clinton Green. His current interest is in exploring the unnatural yet largely unprocessed sounds of broken or 'wrongly played' instruments and sound devices, specifically guitar and record players. Using multiple turntables and layers of shattered/melted vinyl, he attempts to build organic loops that chaotically sample slices of forgotten record collections and reveal unexpected sonic epiphanies. http://ShameFileMusic.com/ug/

  • MAKE UP SEX
    Make Up Sex comprise of one Sophia Brous and one Tarquin Manek. Initially based upon improvising guttural vocalisations of feelings of sexual tension and release, in recent times their concepts have devoloped into those of wider human concerns and narratives whilst remaining undoubtly sexual. None of us would be here without sex of course, and to those perhaps from another planet where reproductive acts are redundant or for those born out of test tubes, Make Up Sex may appear to be a little obscure.

  • G.N. CARAZO and R.M. MARLOW
    Prepared and extended turntable techniques utilising recycled/re-used surfaces and objects to explore the possibilities of curious noise.
