This week at MIUC we showcase another three divergent musical projects engaged in the improvisatory arts in our fair city. Born and musically trained in Iran, Gelareh Pour represents a fairly unique voice (both metaphorically and literally) in the Melbourne avant scene, on this occasion accompanied by the tripped-out tabla of Phil Coyle and erhu of HakGwai Lau. Maka Khan rip loose with their fiery brand of free jazz, denoting a much yearned-for musical insanity in the emerging generation of VCA-moulded jazz practitioners. And The Secret Tomb, with the self prescribed aim: try to create a vision of 'what music and sound /noise are define', an evocation of some darkness in our universe in a very much synthesised world.
• Maka Khan feat. Mitch Mollison (Electronics), Sarah Galdes (Drums) and Paris Favilla (Voice)
• Gelareh Pour (kamanche, voice), HakGwai Lau (Erhu) and Phil Coyle (Tabla)
