Tuesday August 27th @ the Make It Up Club

This week at MIUC we exhibit three gatherings of soundmakers focussed on a very direct approach to their instruments and performative styles, filtering their technical and cerebral prowess through the visceral nature of improvised music. A first-time grouping (that should have eventuated years ago) featuring three of Melbourne's most well-regarded Makers of It Up, vocalist Carolyn Connors, bassist Dave Tolley and trumpeter Scott Tinkler will pluck sonic potentials from the aether into blissful auditory existence. Joel Stern and Rod Cooper deal directly with their source of sound production, their musical implements, by devising handmade creations with subtleties and tonal possibilities simply not possible with standard instrumentation. And percussionist James McLean investigates the vertical and horizontal texturhythmic prospects of his drum kit with a variety of objects to strike and excite, applied to invoke vast columns and rows of transcendental aleatoric euphonies.
