This week at MIUC we present seven uncompromisingly adventurous Gen Y creators engaging with the improvisatory arts, and though it may be tempting to refer to them as emerging to do so would undermine their already vast achievements and make the author to appear to not be paying attention. Three of the brightest young Australian improvisers, Sam Dunscombe,Aviva Endean and Vilan Mai present some spontaneous music based on material for Sam's Tokyo Duo/Trio for 2/3 clarinets, in a much-welcome return to terra australis for Dunscombe. In the 46,656,000 or so seconds since NoFukwitz played their Melbourne debut at MIUC they gained a member, learned how to spell fuckwit and decided their bandname looks better in caps…Volcanic Tongue reckons they'd make Moondog wince - 'nuff said. And Simon Charles makes his first saxophonic foray into the digital world, hybridising the palpable vulnerability of his woodwind instrument with the unassailable transmutative powers of Max MSP.
