Tuesday March 8th @ the Make It Up Club

This week, we focus on the humble turntable as an instrument of endless improvisational possibilities. Detourned, prepared, extended and plunderfied, the performances tonight exemplify the avant garde tradition of the record player, eschewing the popular creation-myth that it's origins as an instrument lie in hip-hop and techno, and re-instilling it's modernist roots and contemporary deconstructions in postmodern noise practice. Clinton Green's Undecisive God emphasises creation through destruction, manipulating broken records and cracked systems. Riki-Metisse Marlow and Gabriel Carazo premiere their new turntable duo, which focuses on the record player as a mechanism for spontaneous sound sculpture. Ryan Cockburn deconstructs the machine to display it's inner sonic logic. And, the enfent terrible of the Melbourne no-noise scene, Lloyd Honeybrook, reminds us of the visceral beauty and volatile nature of the turntable as a postmodern version of the intonorumori.
