Disruptions - Corner Hotel - 4 Dec 2013

Wed Dec 4 – Corner Hotel
Presented in conjunction with Melbourne Now at National Gallery of Victoria

Once a year these artists get together to play a show on Melbourne’s best sound system. Robin Fox, Marco Fusinato and Oren Ambarchi, three of Australia’s most recognised experimentalists and doyens in their respective fields, come to together on Wednesday December 4th at the Corner Hotel to present an earth shattering mix of deeply sculpted tones, wild chaotic noise and blinding audio-vision. This year the show is part of the Satellite program of the National Gallery of Victoria’s ambitious Melbourne Now exhibition, in which each is participating. Their involvement in the show’s Now Hear This project, together with the Satellite concert, provide a fitting snapshot of three artists whose work has been hugely influential on the Melbourne and Australian experimental scenes for well over a decade.

Fusinato, best known for his incisive work in the visual arts, performs his unique brand of analog infused guitar noise. Akin to standing in the centre of a sonic tornado, his dynamic range is massive, hurling the audience through time and space as he navigates his chaotic machines.

Ambarchi, the undisputed master of the hypnotic drone and blissful bass bomb, will present his duo version of ‘Knots’ featuring Joe Talia on drums. The duo will stretch the Corner’s wide spectrum PA reaching for the edges of perception where the sonic becomes physical.

Fox, whose Laser show has been developed and tested on Melbourne audiences for years returns with a now rare Melbourne appearance featuring new material developed in Glasgow and Mexico guaranteed to redefine your understanding of sound and light and transport you neurologically to a synaesthetic plane.
