Undue Noise presents Barcode Quartet in Bendigo Wednesday 6th Feb Old Fire Station Bendigo 8pm $10
Annette Giesriegl (Austria) – voice and electronics
Alison Blunt (UK) – violin
Elisabeth Harnik (Austria) – piano
Josef Klammer (Austria) – drums and electronics
Visiting Australia for Canberra’s Sound Out Festival this is their only gig in Victoria (about 2 hours drive from Melbourne). The four musicians perform music created entirely in the moment from a starting point of contrasting histories, energies and aesthetics. Annette Giesriegl’s studies of overtone singing, throat singing and Indian music with an emphasis on Indian vocal techniques give line to the textural play of piano and violin. Harnik and Blunt work within an electro-acoustic inspired sound-world, using unique preparations and extended techniques. Klammer‘s drums and subtle electronics bring expressive punctuation and a huge range of colour, providing the musical glue to the ensemble.
PLUS local support acts: Cray (Ross Healy’s amazing Buchla Synthesiser) and Jacques Soddell’s electroacoustic degeneration of everyday sounds.
