Nellie Bell: From Dawn Till Dusk

From Dawn Till Dusk
Singer Nellie Bell will be taking the Play Me, I’m Yours event in Melbourne by storm by creating one of her biggest jam sessions to date! On the 12th of January she’ll be playing every piano in less than 24 hours, picking up musicians along the way and producing a different song each time, culminating in a 25 piece band and some amazing music.
Nellie Bell is set to be next year’s most talked about singer song-writer. She has spent 2013 touring and recording in Europe, and with an ever growing fan base she is set to unveil her debut single Only the Lonely in spring 2014. On the 9th of January Nellie will be back on native soil to perform at the event ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’ in association with The Arts Center Melbourne.
From the 10-27 of January 25 street pianos will be scattered across Melbourne, giving everyone the opportunity to indulge in live music. The Arts Center Melbourne will be hosting the opening night on January 9th where the public will get their first chance to experience all of the pianos in one place; the night will also include live musicians and creative talents.

HAARK - SHOPPING

...tis the season! 

on this release, HAARK recreates his sociophobic terror of shopping, through distorted free-noise feedback, exploratory guitar loops, grinding chaos, and fragmented glitches.   all improvised and recorded live.  enough music about death and violence... experience the horror of SHOPPING.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

first movement:
ONSLAUGHT
(bright colours, flashing lights, manipulative aromas, a million slogans. unrealistic body propaganda, agoraphobia, claustrophobia, sociophobia.)

second movement:
HYPNOSIS
(promises of sex, promises of success, promises of acceptance.)

third movement:
CHOICE PARALYSIS
(fear of missing out. absolutism, identification, the closing of possibilities into one single concrete reality.)

fourth movement:
PURCHASE
(the word 'purchase' also means 'grip'. holding on.)

'I Yennisi sou, Khriste' - Monkey - 18 Dec 2013


Dr David Brown and Nick Tsiavos are back! And they have brought Deborah Kayser and Peter Neville with them - and it is the week before Christmas!

What happens to these 'way out' exploratory dudes as Christmas comes upon them? Well this - the passionate, sublime beauty of Ancient Chant colliding with the energy and instability of contemporary culture.The Ancient becomes Modern, as the languages and anarchic energies of Modernism mix freely with the rapturous beauty and potent danger of Sacred Text. Merry Christmas!

 

Monkey Bar, 181 St George's Road

North Fitztroy. 8PM. 

 

Nick Tsiavos: Contrabass

Peter Neville: Percussion

Deborah Kayser: Voice

David Brown: Guitar

If you are coming by car there is no parking on Bell Street, but you should be able to find some in York Street which is just around the corner. The last stop on the 55 tram at Bell Street will get you nearby. Holdings is about a 5 block walk west from there. If you can get to Bell or Coburg Station the 513 bus will take you pretty much across the road. Just ask to get off before Reynolds Parade. Holdings is across the road from a 7-Eleven (which is on the corner of Reynolds & Bell) if you need a landmark.

METALKUNST @ MUSIKUNST - 3pm Sat 28.12.2013


* NOTE: EVENT STARTS AT 3PM SHARP, 1 HOUR EARLIER THAN USUAL*

This month MUSIKUNST presents METALKUNST, a special event incorporating extreme metal with improvised and experimental music.

Curated by Daniel Tucceri, this event will feature members of the Melbourne metal and experimental scenes combining their distinct and unique approaches to take themselves and the audience into unfamiliar territory.

For anyone even remotely interested in either style, this is not an event to be missed and is a must for those who wander on the sparsely populated periphery where extremes meet.

PLASMODIUM VIVAX

DAV BYRNE: sub-dirges
ROB HANSEN: hell-vocations
DANIEL ‘FANZA’ O’GRADY: 666strings
MATT ‘SKITZ’ SANDERS: mezzerschmitts
DANIEL TUCCERI: pianicide

Featuring members of Terrorust and the Rev Kriss Hades, METALKUNST hosts the debut gig for PLASMODIUM VIVAX, a realm first invoked upon the full moon of November 2013. Entirely improvised ritual based extreme metal, think Gnaw Their Tongues and Blut Aus Nord with keyboards straight out of 70s-80s era horror films. Not to be missed.

MELBOURNE DRONE ORCHESTRA
 
LIAM BREWER
DAV BYRNE
CIARAN GEOGHEGAN
BONNIE MERCER
PIERS MORGAN
DANIEL TUCCERI

Six guitarists. Six strings. Six half stacks. 6.6.6. Possibly 666 decibels. Playing a set entirely consisting of guitar drones and feedback, prepare to have your innards liquefied by the sheer voluminal pressure conjured by these six merchants of noise. Featuring members of Agonhymn and Grey Daturas, this promises to be a performance either that will either invoke ear plugs or ear bleeds.

HAARK
A DEMON SHEEN (MAT BLACKWELL)
with special guests
SHANE VAN DEN AKKER
CHRIS NYLSTOCH

The demonic solo project for demented genius MAT BLACKWELL will materialise in the form of a three headed entity channelling the corrupted soul of DONKEY MUTHERS OF ARSE madman SHANE VAN DEN AKKER and the divebombingly shredgasmic death riffery of CHRIS NYLSTOCH. If you ever wondered what it would be like to throw Autechre, the Locust and Burzum in a blender, this is the smoothie the government doesn’t want sold to children.

3-6pm SHARP - $5 conc / $10 full
Saturday 28th December
GB Hotel BASEMENT 447 Church St Richmond

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephen Richards (Cleaning Lady) on baritone and soprano sax, Ian Wadley (Mad Nanna, Bird Blobs and more) on drums and David Palliser (The Charles Ives Singers, Donkey's Tail) on alto sax.

Media Lab Melbourne CODE party fundraiser Sat 7th December

On SATURDAY 7th December at a brand new warehouse venue on Flinders Street in the CBD

Showcasing Melbourne's BEST homegrown electronic talent while also raising some much needed funds for MEDIA LAB MELBOURNE!

For the past year Media Lab Melbourne have been putting together events that encourage creative sharing in the realm of new media art. Ranging from thought provoking talks and exhibitions that allow us to peer into the creative processes of some truly amazing artists, together with organising workshops that provide a hands on approach to technology for art, Media Lab Melbourne is working hard to provide events where people can connect with each other to discuss the latest in creative technology.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Media-Lab-Melbourne/183550608358171?ref=ts&fref=ts

2014 is going to be a BIG year and we need your help and support. After talking to people at every OpenLAB and MLM event we realise how important it is for there to be a dedicated space for everyone to connect, create and hang out. For this we want to get the necessary council permits as well as begin construction and pay for admin of a medialab hacker space where we can provide equipment such as 3d printers, arduinos, raspberry pi's, LED's, cnc routers, desk space, storage, internet, materials and the list goes on...

How can you help? Buy a $15 ticket on the door, drink some tasty beverages and come and enjoy a selection of some of Melbourne's best live electronic artists:
