HYPERDENTITY
“From now on humankind will have to act in two worlds at once”
Marie Louise Angerer, The Making of …Desire, Digital

As a digital generation we seek instant gratification through constant communication across a multitude of platforms. The social networks of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other virtual worlds all provide outlets for us to reinvent the self through the screen. These networks are innately rich in social currency, and where there is social currency simultaneously there is a high value placed on identity and persona, resulting in a desire to create the perfect fantasised self. In the multilayered material space of the cyberworld our ‘avatars’ concurrently hide and reveal aspects of the inner. All it takes to disappear is a mouse click and we are left with an identity crisis of digital proportions.

In Hyperdentity, the lines between identity and role-play blur as the artist constructs and melds performances in a perpetual process of cleverly editing the “I”. These multiple self-portraits can create the illusion of transcending the body, as they enter and entertain the cyber world, seeming to self-importantly existing everywhere at once. Through the use of audio-visual projected, digital and screen based media installation, Georgie employs techniques of repetition and difference to create layers of mirroring and deconstruction, ultimately rendering a visual and aural chorus on the subject of the self within a contemporary, digital context.

GEORGIE ROXBY SMITH
Georgie Roxby Smith is an Australian visual artist working across a range of disciplines exploring new pathways between virtual and physical worlds. She received a Bachelor of Media Arts from Deakin University in 2004. Her graduate studies include a Post Graduate Diploma in Visual Arts and Master of Fine Arts from the Victorian College of the Arts. In 2010, Georgie developed her multi disciplinary work ‘Reality Bytes’ at The Watermill Center Spring Residency Program in New York and presented the work at Rearview Gallery in Melbourne Australia as well as exhibiting at several local galleries and public screens. Georgie was also part of Linden Centre for Contemporary Art Innovators Program 2010 and Melbourne International Arts Festival including ‘Navigators’ 2006 (for which she received the Eldon and Anne Foote Trust Travel Grant), ‘John Cage’s Musicircus’ 2007 and, in 2008, contributed to ‘Longing Belonging Land’ on opening night and assisted artist Chris Doyle (US) with his ‘Ecstatic City’ installation. Recent awards and grants include Nellie Castan Award, Australian Postgraduate Award, Creative Research Activity Grant, Ian Potter Cultural Trust 2010, Artstart Australia Council for the Arts 2009 and Dame Joan Sutherland Fund 2009.

David Brown - Monkey - 1 & 4 Mar 2012

Magda Mayas (Berlin) + Tony Buck (Aus/Berlin) duo meets David Brown somewhere in sonic space.
Thursday March 1
8pm
Magda Mayas is a pianist living in Berlin. Developing a vocabulary utilizing both the inside as well as the exterior parts of the piano, using preparations and objects, she explores textural, linear and fast moving sound collage. On this occasion at Monkey she will be playing clavinet.
Born in Sydney, now residing in Berlin, Tony Buck is regarded as one of Australia's most creative and adventurous exports, with vast experience across the globe. He has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects including drumming with the highly regarded trio The Necks.
Magda and Tony will be joined by local improvisor David Brown (AKA candlesnuffer) on prepared guitar.
Apparently this trio will only drink tequila on the night.


Rosalind Hall + David Brown (duo) and Carolyn Connors (solo)
Sunday March 4
7pm
Rosalind Hall and David Brown revisit their prepared saxophone and prepared guitar duo. With only a handful of gigs under their respective belts the subtlety of sound nuances they evoke together along with the soft silences make you believe they have been playing together for years.
Carolyn Connors vocalist extraordinaire will amaze, intrigue and exalt with her unbelievable range of vocal,nasal and bodily sonic phenomena in super human feats of stamina in sound.

Berlin-based improviser, Magda Mayas (one of Europe's most celebrated avant-pianists) and Tony Buck (the legendary Australian drummer from the likes of Peril and The Necks) make their MIUC debut in this configuration. Melbourne indie/punk/scumcore/drone luminaries McWaters/Brown/Watson/Brown premiere their new synth quartet. And Swedish-based improvisers, Casey and Johan Moir, present their duo of ultra abstracted, and rarefied breath, mediated by the trumpet and voice.

ICEAGE PRODUCTIONS are proud to present the launch of the new Paul Kidney Experience album:

"PAUL KIDNEY EXPERIENCE with MANI NEUMEIER".
Bar Open - Thursday March 1st 2012 - Doors open 9:00pm

This is the 5th release for Melbourne Psych/Noise/Jazz/Drone/Rock outfit the Paul Kidney Experience.Mind melting psychedelic mayhem unfolds across this 4 track album featuring the drumming prowess of 70’s Kraut Rock legend Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru. Recorded live at 3PBS radio station in Melbourne this improvised set is full to the brim with frenetic riffage overlaid with the banshee like howlings from the high priest of musical carnage Paul Kidney. Although inspiration may well have derived from the likes of Sun Ra, Coltrane, or The Stooges this album (as with all P.K.E. releases) often seems peerless and from another dimension altogether.

Warren Burt on Making Misteaks - 15 Feb 2012

On Wednesday 15 February Warren Burt will be talking about the art and the joy of accidental creation.

Burt is a composer, sound poet, theorist, performer, and instrument builder. His work is noisy and energetic, always straddling the boundary between music and language, sound and noise. A current of playfulness flows through Burt’s work, fostering a fearless and ongoing capacity for experimentation and innovation.

Warren’s talk will be around 30 minutes. The forum will then open into a discussion; you'll have a chance to ask questions, and have your own brief rant.

Come and engage; create an ongoing dialogue between people and the ideas that they live and work by. It would be great to have you all there!

WHERE: 12-18 Yarra Place, South Melbourne

WHEN: Wednesday 15 February. 8pm.

HOW (much): $5
