This week at Make It Up Club we interpolate into your Tuesday night three intriguing examples of the immediate interaction between speaker, ear, brain and hand for your internal processing, intellectual digestion and personal interfusion. Polish-French composer/improviser/musician/noisemaker Kasper T. Toeplitz's work morphs seamlessly through the 'high' academic and 'low' sound art scenes, dealing with post-Xenakian applications of formalised music and the brutality of unbridled electronic noise - after presenting the soundtrack for Breathing Monster, a dance work with leading choreographer Myrian Gourfink for ISEA 2013, it would not be unwise to expect the latter. We are lucky enough to have two distinct international performers this evening, the second being German soundsmithh Dirk Dresselhaus, perhaps best known for his work as SchneiderTM and with Ilpo Väisänen as Angel. Having sold out all shows at Dark Mofo over the past week, Dirk is traversing across the Bass Strait to present Construction Sound, based on field recordings of construction sites that he resided near, absorbed over a period of nearly a decade, was driven to the brink of mental meltdown by and finally realised was just another source of aleatorically structured ''cosmic music''. And interstate guests Té, the improvisatory partnership of Sydneysider Andrew Brooks and Perthian Kynan Tan, further explore the blurring between organic and electronic sound production, coercing one acoustic and one digital sound source to traverse the same sonic nowhere-land.
