'A serene yet blue drift ... Highly recommended.'- Boomkat.


'Rushford and Cole create evocative miniatures ... Here, memory is fragmentary and irruptive: bursts of noise break through the murk in extreme close-up; melodies are imprint-like, dying away soon after appearing.' - Wire.

New titles on Shame File Music mailorder

Shame File Music
New titles:

The Rik Rue Cassette Archive

For composer/audio collagist Rik Rue, environmental sounds have always provided abstract and subconscious pleasure and an inner understanding of the physical. Since the early 1980’s, he has been involved in composing with environmental and found sounds. Utilising analogue and digital technology in a variety of recording techniques through a wide range of natural settings from bushland to urban areas, he transforms these recordings into soundscapes that have eventuated into radiophonic works, sound installation compositions and live performances. Rik Rue has also used ‘live tape’ and digital manipulations in various performance projects with Jon Rose, Mind/Body/Split, Social Interiors (with Shane Fahey) and as a member of the contemporary Australian music group, Machine For Making Sense, using sampling and the recording medium itself as an instrument.

Rue released numerous cassettes on his Pedestrian Tapes label throughout the 1980s and 1990s, now mostly unavailable. Following on from the successful Ernie Althoff Cassette Archive, Shame File Music presents here online reissues of some of Rue's cassettes, complete with cover art and remastered by Rue's longtime collaborator Shane Fahey, all for free download/streaming. 

So far we have:

Rik Rue & Shane Fahey - Murmurs (originally released on cassette 1986):
The recordings on this cassette were sourced from field recordings made along the New South Wales coast, including rainforests, hinterlands, coastal bays and creek beds. Murmurs was the second collaborative release between Rue and Fahey, who had combined previously under the moniker of Social Interiors (self-titled cassette released on Rue's Pedestrian Tapes, 1985); although Murmurs was not specifically credited to Social Interiors, Fahey very much thinks of it as a Social Interiors release. 

Rik Rue - The Pre Glasnost Tapes (originally released on cassette 1991):Whilst visiting a shop in Melbourne specialising in Russian paraphrenalia, Rue came across a book of Soviet-era flexidiscs, containing Soviet propaganda recordings (Western music was hard to come by in the post WWII Soviet Union, although bootlegs flexidiscs of jazz and rock music pressed onto discarded medical x-rays, colloquially known 'ribs' or 'bones', were sort-after on the black market from the late 1940s to the 1960s). Rue used these flexidiscs as source material for 'The Pre Glasnost Tapes'. Rue overlayed and juxtaposed patriotic workers songs with orchestral music, spoken Russian and natural sounds, altering pitch and timbre by adjusting record speed.

Originally released on Rue's Pedestrian Tapes in 1991, 'The Pre Glasnost Tapes' has been reissued on several different occasions (on tape and CDR) with different covers; the one used here Rue views as the definitive cover. 

Stream/download for free from , or order your CDR version.

Dale Gorkinkel - Switches & Hose LP Debut major solo release from Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and instrument builder lovingly documents recent contraptions made from materials such as foot pumps, irrigation hose, vibraphones, bird cages, and modified trumpets. Highly recommended. Limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies. 

Jim Denley/Cor Fuhler "Truancy" LP/CD
Jim Denley and Dutch musician Cor Fuhler first met in the early 1990s and Cor's frequent visits to Australia over the years gave them the opportunity to occasionally play. In 2012 Cor moved to Sydney, allowing them to ramp up the duo — this is their first release together. 
 Frans de Waard writing in Vital Weekly says: 

"It's a great record in which we recognise the acoustic alto saxophone by Denley and the acoustic piano of Fuhler... In the early bit of 'Wag' it sounds like they use electronics to generate a mild wall of feedback... It's hard to believe that it's just these two instruments. Of the two pieces 'Wag' is the more intense... Even when it paces down it still has that menacing quality of a noise piece. 'Skive' is perhaps quieter and subdued, but here too Denley plays some shrieking notes.... But 'Skive' has more air, more space to breath and both of these pieces, although different, complement each other very well, and offer a truly rich album of improvised music." 
LP is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. 

Anonymous - cassette A leading, longtime noisician returns to recording via this strictly anonymous 90 minute tape, consisting of lowercase noise, field recording, turntable damage and more. Very limited copies.

Jon Rose "rosenberg 3.0: not violin music" (paperback book + CD) A pseudonymous violin arcana compiled by Jon Rose from an extremely diverse array of musicians, fans and eccentrics, all deriving from the activities of the late lamented virtuoso Dr Johannes Rosenberg. A satirical yet thought-provoking cultural critique of music in the 21st century (comes with audio CD of Rosenberg performances from 1981). 

NMA Magazine - last copies of some issues (ever!)

For the past few years, Shame File Music has been selling the remaining copies of editor/publisher, Rainer Linz's stocks of his seminal NMA magazine, which covered new music in Australia throughout the 1989s to the early 1990s. Some issues have completely sold out, and with what remains we are beginning to get to absolute last few copies. For instance, we only have one copy left of NMA#2, #7 & #8, so you really need to get in quick to get these in particular. The NMATAPES, compilations with accompanied each issue, were reissued online and on CDR by Shame File in 2006 and are still available from

Everybody Talks About The Weather - Corner Hotel - 3 Dec 2014

Robin Fox, Marco Fusinato and Oren Ambarchi

The Corner Hotel Wed Dec 3
IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN! Robin Fox, Marco Fusinato and Oren Ambarchi return to the Corner Hotel, presenting Everybody Talks About the Weather... Every year the Corner PA is put through it’s paces by a trio of Australia’s most uncompromising artists. It’s an irresistible chance for FoxFusinato and Ambarchi to showcase where their sounds are at another year into this thing we call ‘being alive.’ It’s also a great opportunity for audiences to see and hear these world class acts in an environment where every frequency get’s a hearing.

Experience a slice of Marco Fusinato’s noise-guitar continuum (just in case you missed the epic Spectral Arrows at this years Dark Mofo). It’s a window onto a sound plane where fracture is normal and turbulence is re-defined in a new abstracted physics of contingency.

Hear the one and only Oren Ambarchi with fresh new releases on Editions Mego, Drag city and Black Truffle. He’s now a globetrotting nomad who's works and performances in Australia are getting rarer and harder to catch. Somehow this man keeps refining the unrefineable.

Robin Fox has been rolling out his new mind-blowing RGB laser show globally with recent shows at Tramway Glasgow, the Barbican London, Vivid Festival, Mona Foma and the recent Melbourne premiere at Liquid Architecture. RGB won’t fit in the Corner, so this show will be a return to the original format of his laser show MONACHROMA.Fox will step off the plane from Banff and onto the Corner stage. What happens when you mix noise, lasers and jet lag? Only one way to find out……be there.

Good Improv/Bad Improv returns to Musikunst - Edinburgh Castle - 29 Nov 2014

"Good Improv/Bad Improv" explores both negative and positive behaviours in group improvisation. Performers are arranged into trios, then each musician draws an instruction from a hat, which they then follow in the subsequent improvisation, without revealing the instruction to their fellow performers or audience until afterwards. Instructions include:

- Play softer than everyone else
- Completely disregard what the others play
- Be the star of the trio

Can you pick which are the good or bad behaviours?

"Good Improv/Bad Improv" premiered at MUSIKUNST earlier in 2014, and returns for an encore performance with a new half dozen of skilled, brave (and slightly nervous) improvisers:

Jim Denley
Jenny Barnes
Mat Blackwell
Llara Goodall
Carmen Gar Man Chan
David Prescott-Stead

Performers will mix-and-match into 4 different trios throughout the afternoon, with multiple 'rounds' of the game.

Cake Industries - Jesse Stevens
Media Artists Jesse Stevens & Dean Petersen have worked under the collaborative pseudonym of Cake Industries since 2006. They are artists, tinkerers and futuristic dreamers. Their practice uses electromechanics, handmade electronics, and robotics to create anthropomorphic and autonomous objects that embrace retro-futurism. Heavily influenced by 1950s science fiction dystopia, Cake Industries’ installations, performances, and sculptural objects anachronistically portray society in order to investigate narratives, culture, reality, and future.

Open LABs is here to share and explore the wonderful world of creative makers. Each talk allows artists, musicians, engineers, performers, and designers to come together and share their work and creative passions with the public and other creatives.

The Birds Conference - La Mama 7-9 Nov 2014

Perhaps this story starts from this phrase: “I am the Truth”

A faith that embraces nothing more than the one Living Truth, animating the hearts of mystics through the ages and across the world.
The story of this performance is based on the 4500-line Iranian epic poem The Conference of the Birds; its captivating poetic style explores the fundamental nature of truth (God, wisdom). The birds of the world, each of which holds special significance, seek out the Simorgh - a mythical Persian bird much like the phoenix. 

Brook’s stage adaptation of this 12th-century Persian poem first came on stage in 1979.

Performer, advisor, puppeteer and puppet maker:
Elnaz Sheshgelani

Directors: Lloyd Jones, Scott Mostafa Welsh,
Ren Walters, Rick Evertsz and Kerry Davies

Music and sound by Clinton Green

Vocal: Shani Holmes

BOLT Ensemble - Footscray Community Arts Centre - 23 Oct 2014

Concert 3 features the BOLT Ensemble and sound machines created by Hullick and Richard Allen over the last 10 years. Schizoid No. 1 defies rationalization through constant and erratic change. It contemplates and trickery of the mind, but what is the mind? The highly conceptual Uno Series features special lighting and video in a series of works that frame one action each. Some are less than one second long while others are static drones. The last piece in this concert is Threshold, created in partnership with the Bionic Ear Institute and cochlear implant users for people with and without cochlear implants. The work revels in the excess of sonic materiality where the careful listener is rewarded by hearing the sounds embedded in the fabric of noise.

Deity Sat 25th Oct feat River of Heaven, Miles Cosmo, Suicide By Cop & Abre Ojos

Deity - On the eve of all Hallow’s Eve and under a full moon four diverse acts play a night dedicated to any and all deities. Each musician conjures their own spirits, to their own rhythms with their own machines. Join the cacophony of devotion. 

Tickets $10/$5conc 
Sat 25th Oct - doors open 8.00pm at
Conduit Arts 83 Brunswick St Fitzroy
River Of Heaven: the River of Heaven is culmination of Dase Beard's obsession with aluminium instruments, simple song structures, a frail voice and an abundance of reverb.

Miles Cosmo: Miles Cosmo produces vintage synth sounds as rich and thick as his full ginger beard. 
IDM, chillwave, techno, house and glitch influences mix with rich melodies and catchy hooks in hardware heaven.

Suicide By Cop: Hailing from the heart of Melbourne's industrial west, Suicide by Cop is an audio/visual project with extreme sensibilities, approached with an emphasis on pushing hardware beyond its intended function to create a relentless wall of droning noise and chaotic freeform video.

Abre Ojos invokes the elements of this world and the next through deep frequencies of sound and light. Brutal meditation to match this brutal world. The gates have fractured and the bounty is yours.

Sororal soundtrack - Christopher de Groot

Australian giallo film soundtrack released on Swedish label and receives nomination for APRA Film Score of The Year

Australia's first giallo film Sororal is currently making waves at genre film festivals around the world. The soundtrack composed by Northcote based composer Christopher de Groot features a 10-piece brass section, 16-piece choir, two drum kits, electric guitar, electric cello, a barrage of analogue synthesizers and a Hungarian cimbalom. The score takes inspiration from prog-rock, kraut-rock, as well as Bulgarian choir music, 20th Century avant-garde classical works and classic giallo scores from the likes of soundtrack band Goblin and legendary Italian film composer Ennio Morricone.

This unique and bizarre score has been nominated at this years APRA Screen Music Awards for Feature Film Score of The Year.

The soundtrack is released through Screamworks Records [Sweden]


About Sororal
Shot on location in Western Australia Sororal, a Nakatomi Pictures production, is currently making appearances at genre film festivals around the world, and will be the prelude to a performance by legendary Italian soundtrack band Goblin at Grimmfest 2014 in Manchester, UK. Inspired by lurid Italian horror films, Sororal lays claim to being Australia’s first giallo film.

A diverse and bizarre film, Sororal mixes a heady whirlwind of genetic experimentation, mind control, and telekinetic power struggles with twisted artworks. Sororal’s heroine, Cassie (Amanda Woodhams) is a troubled artist who tries to make sense of her vivid, violent dreams by committing her visions to canvas.

Fundraiser Party - Bus - 11 Oct 2014

Justin Fuller, Asps, Cold Life
Saturday 11 October, 6-9pm

To celebrate and mark the final day of our 2014 Editions Fundraiser, Bus Projects will be holding an evening of solo musical-performances, including Justin Fuller, Cold Life and Asps. All acts are local, providing Melbourne with high-quality electronic output, showcasing a particular sound- austere, catchy and dark. 

When in solo mode, Justin Fuller (current member of Melbourne's ZOND, TÄX and TOL) delivers a Poly-rhythmic audio assault. A multi layered collision of hums, tones and tremolo pulse, phased, flanged, delayed and distorted, shifting over and under sequenced tones and rhythms. 

Asps formed in 2010 as a solo vehicle for Andrea Blake’s (Chrome Dome, Vacuum) experimentations in song-writing and sound design. After the ‘So Long’ cassingle on Nihilistic Orbs in 2011 Asps became a live project with other collaborators including members of Repairs and UV Race. After doing remixes for Miles Brown, Liam Kenny and Multiple Man, Asps has self-released a second cassingle, ‘Swarm’ – a molasses-thick exploration into the elements of dub and dance music.

Cold Life is the new minimal and dark-wave solo electronic project of James Dalgliesh (ex Pro-Life, Slug Guts).
