Mathew Watson - Public Bar - 4 May 2013

Do you like analog sounds, Krautrock rhythms, synthesisers, perhaps even a little ‘noise rock’ and most importantly - indulging your IMAGINATION?! Well then, The Public Bar is hosting a night that will feature 3 bands, all taking inspiration from these worlds, happening on Saturday the 4th of May. Constant Light kick off proceedings bringing their globe-trotting sound that takes in influences from Krautrock (particularly the Neu! beat), Factory Records & OMD followed by Wunderlust, the sonic experimentalists, cosmic jokers, wunderous plot smokers, who make records to melt the wax in your dirty eardrums and headlining is Mat Watson (Other Places), experimenting with legendary Aks synth, loop pedal and analogue delay to create textural, danceable sonic landscapes… hmmm, I’ll drink to that!

 Mat Watson (Other Places)
11:00 - 12:00am

WUNDERLUST
10:00 - 11:00pm

Constant Light
9:00 - 10:00pm

Erewhon Calling: experimental sound in New Zealand

Now available from Shame File Music mailorder:

"Erewhon Calling: experimental sound in New Zealand" edited by Bruce Russell (paperback book) - '...a survey of how a bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents have forged new ways and new reasons to make noise, here at the end of the earth. Edited by Bruce Russell (the Dead C.), in association with Richard Francis and Zoe Drayton; the aim of this volume is to survey the full range of 'non-standard' audio practices in contemporary NZ culture. The book's remit runs from the borders of composed art music, through improvised noise, to deconstructed 'rock'n pop filth'; and every genre, every scene, every permutation of unconventional audio practice in-between'. Contributors include Bruce Russell, Byron Coley, Alastair Galbraith, Phil Dadson and many more.

False Start - Monkey - 28 Apr 2013


(forwarded from Dave Brown)

Tuesday April 30th @ the Make It Up Club

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. 

The Secret Tomb - Carey Knight (Guitar) Ledong Kvelin (Alto Saxophone, Radio Noise Frequency Manipulation, Vocals)
Maka Khan feat. Mitch Mollison (Electronics), Sarah Galdes (Drums) and Paris Favilla (Voice)
Gelareh Pour (kamanche, voice), HakGwai Lau (Erhu) and Phil Coyle (Tabla)

C O P O I E S I S - Bluestone Church - 16 May & 20 Jun 2013

C O P O I E S I S(after Ettinger)

 

“Co-poietic differentiation-in-coemergence is possible only with-in compassionate hospitality and with fascinance. Artworking, like psychoanalytical healing of long duration, is a compassionate encounter-event of prolonged generosity. The artist who is working through the cross-inscribed traces and is worked through by virtual, phantasmatic or traumatic real strings practices her art art that is an aesthetic-in-action – as a healing, healing that is an ethics-in-action. Such is the co-response-ability of artworking and of healing in copoiesis.” © 2005 Bracha L. Ettinger

 
Thursdays 16th May and 20th June, 2013

Doors open 6.30pm and close at 7pm. Reopening at 9pm for second set.

Tuesday April 23rd @ the Make It Up Club

This Tuesday at MIUC we present four artists dealing with the potentially impersonal nature of electronic music production and proving the cruciality of the id to pleasurable sound production. Norwegian Alexander Rishaug builds on an intimate knowledge of his technological equipment by injecting unbridled curiosity and unprocessed humanity to create richly detailed sonic architectures brimming with eloquent textures and languid melodicism, extending far beyond the usual forensic clinicism of glitch music. NyquistX manifest their spectral perception of future jazz by electronically extending a synth and drum kit in ways that will make you glad you've never heard of Saint Germain. And Robert McDougall revels in his phenomenological approach to electroacoustic music, asserting that sometimes monitoring rather than controlling one's instrument provides maximum levels of absorption. 

Alexander Rishaug (NO) (Laptop, Modular Synthesiser)
NyquistX feat. Vijay Thillaimuthu (Modular Synthesiser, Electronics) and Sam Price (Drums, Electronics)

Tuesday April 16th @ the Make It Up Club

This edition of MIUC draws focus to three idiomatic local groupings that feature some of the Generation Y-sters who are turning to aleatoric means to express their atypical visions for the potentialities of live music. Alice Hui Sheng-Chang and Nigel Brown extend their lush textural duo with the addition of the unpredictably angular rhythms of My Disco's Rohan Rebeiro. The Cross Brothers invoke and recontextualise the slacker minimalist approach of the trans-Tasman noisy drone aesthetic of the 90s with their fraternal guitar abuses. And Stre4m celebrate the lamentations for the passing of the fertile seasons into the inevitable cold depths of a Melbournian winter with their spiritually electroacousmatic pagan devotional music. 

Alice Hui-Sheng Chang (Vocals), Nigel Brown (Modified Accordion) & Rohan Rebeiro (Drums)
Dan Cross (Guitar) & Patrick Cross (Guitar)
Stre4m feat. Paddy Gordon, Scott McCulloch & Conor O'Hanlon (Guitar, Bass, Voice, Dictaphones, Drum-Kit & Fiddle)

Tuesday April 9th @ the Make It Up Club

This week at MIUC features a cavalcade of industrial-strength noise bruitistes keen on inflicting frequency punishment whilst simultaneously promulgating textural wisdom. For their first public performance since 1995, Sooterkin Flesh will revive the volatile beast that is their aethereal industrial experimental dark isolationist noise ambience on the advent of their 25th year since inception - skulls will collapse. Christopher LG Hill's Porpoise Torture is exactly as the name implies: the sonic extract of Atlantean horror, murky sub-surface din, suffocatingly drenched power electronics, red mist at full saturation. And sax pest Lloyd Honeybrook makes a rare solo appearance to commit some saxual abuse in public, filtering the acoustic architecture of the space and general sonic revulsion through the chamber of his feedback-extirpated woodwind-death knell.

Sooterkin Flesh feat. Troy Norfolk, Jason Van Den Boogert & Kristian Schäfer (Synthesisers, samples, tape loops, cassette players, turntable, toys, radio, television, bells, metal pipes, drills, strings)

Avant Noise Duet 'GNAUMGN' - new Bandcamp, new Album

Melbourne avant post-punk necro-noise free-improv duet 'GNAUMGN' have finally hitched themselves to the Bandcamp wagon, using their new Bandcamp presence to release their first new album proper since 2012's 'METANOIAC' release.

The new album, "CNIDARIAN", combines their typical free-metal-noise-punk ethos with a series of field recordings / minimal acoustic improvisations the duet performed at the beaches and rockpools of Eagles Nest in south Gippsland, sometimes layered with studio pieces, sometimes left to speak on their own.  And, like many releases sponsored by the IWML, the album is as free as you want it to be (Bandcamp's "pay what you want" policy includes zero dollars).

Also of GNAUMGN-related interest is the free release of their Remote Hearing experiment of 2012, finally available now on archive.org, or click here:Remote Hearing (Time and Space)

GNAUMGN play their first gig since 2011 on May 28th at Bar Open.  All are welcome.
