True Strength - Conduit Arts - 23 Nov 2012

True Strength + Carolyn Connors + Matthias Schack-Arnott @ Conduit Arts Nov 23rd
8.00PM - MATTHIAS SCHACK-ARNOTT (solo percussion)
Matthias Schack-Arnott is a new music specialist who regularly performs across Australia and internationally. Matthias' improvisational language combines the precision of classical percussion with experimental aesthetics. For this rare solo set, Matthias uses ruined tubular bells, granite tiles, sheet metal and gongs to create a new work exploring corrosion and decay.

8.45PM - CAROLYN CONNORS (solo voice)
Carolyn Connors is one of Melbourne's absolute treasures.
She's an experimental and improvising singer, a composer and a theatre maker.
"...remarkable Carolyn Connors...Material Mouth is one of those deeply satisfying works which leave you ruminating for hours afterwards... (one) of Australia's most interesting performance artists" Alison Croggin,

Featuring Alexander Garsden (guitar) and Ida Duelund Hansen (voice, double bass). Their music draws on the languages of British and American revivalist folk from the last century, manifested in longer form compositions and textures taken from Baroque, Mid-Late Twentieth Century Classical and Experimental Music.
November 23rd at Conduit Arts, 83 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
