This week's edition of Make It Up Club is comprised of improvisers dealing with the difficulties and tropes of one of modern music culture's great successes: rock and/or roll. Todd Anderson-Kunert sacrifices the digital spirits of soundwaves to stretch out sonics into a sublimely Sabbathian audio-visual experience. Theorn Campbell, Jon Perring and Eliot McTavish channel the aggression of metalpunk into their respective electrical instruments to redefine brutality. And Michael Pulsford laments the state of modern popular music by symbolically tearing down his internal sense of personal civilisation, rebuilding the wreckage into a semblance of free(rock)dom and letting it all collapse again.
