Tuesday May 13th @ the Make It Up Club

This Tuesday at MIUC we showcase a selection of the fine young aleatoric talent nurtured by the sonically vigorous city we live in, focussing on the pulchritudinous parlance borne of Melbourne's long-standing post-jazz idiom. For the past year since last gracing the Bar Open stage The Phonetic Orchestra have further evolved their sonic possibilities through personnel progression, further diasporic research and on this evening a special guest in Danish percussionist Christian Windfeld. Windfeld will also have a chance to improvise toe-to-toe with two of our most excellent endemic audial-equilibrists-of-aleatory, double bassist and Phonetic Orchestra director Jonathon Heilbron and dependable Make It Upper Reuben Lewis on trumpet. And Michaela Davies presents her involuntary approach to extemporisation, whereupon electric muscle stimulation will be applied to herself and Jonathon Heilbron to invoke an externalised rampancy and challenge their string-sonifying improvised intentionality. 

  • The Phonetic Orchestra feat. Jonathon Heilbron (Bass), Callum Moncrieff (Percussion), Reuben Lewis (Trumpet), Brett Thompson (Guitar), Jenny Barnes (Voice), Jon Smeathers (Electronics), Michael McNab (Percussion), Aviva Endean (Clarinets) & Christian Windfeld [DK] (Drums)
  • Jonathon Heilbron (Bass), Reuben Lewis (Trumpet) & Christian Windfeld [DK] (Drums)
  • Jonathon Heilbron (Bass, Electronics) & Michaela Davies [SYD] (Violin, Electronics)
