September sees a month of shows featuring Nik Kennedy, one of Melbourne's most exciting and inventive noise improvisers in four unique combinations. For his first performance, he is joined by long-time collaborators, Yuke Mikayama and Brad Smith in a chaotic, ecstatic and joyfully stupid project of partynoisecoremania. Sam Dunscombe convenes a trio of very recent group explorations into the “labyrinthine dungeons” of MaxMSP audio coding language (as he refers to it). Along with Jess Pinney and Kim Tan, the trio juxtaposes the warm and the cold, the fake and the real, the abstracted and the empathic, the clinical and the emotional potentials of this amazing digital tool. And, with immense pleasure, we welcome cornetist Felicity Provan back to Melbourne for a brief visit from her home in the Netherlands. A champion of abstract improv, free and modern jazz in Melbourne during the 80s and 90s, she is joined by Dutch colleague, improv legend and current Australian resident, Cor Fuhler.
