La Musica - La Mama - 25 Jul 2016

La Musica @ La Mama Theatre

Clinton Green (turntables, remote-activated percussion)
Michiko Morita (piano)

"After moving to Australia, I discovered the joy of composition. People, places and feelings inspire me to paint with sound." Japanese pianist Michiko Morita is a wonderful musician whose beautiful 'sound-pictures' are a joy to hear - as are her modest explanations of her pieces. After a few years break due to injury, we're thrilled to welcome Michiko back to Musica for a solo set.

Clinton Green joins us for a solo set of turntable-based sounds. He makes something akin to music. Clinton has been active in Australian experimental music since the 1990s as a recording and performing artist, curator, facilitator, writer and researcher. He has worked with unconventional approaches to guitars, turntables and found... objects as tools for new forms of musical expression. He also works with dancers, theatre and performance artists in improvised collaborative situations. For this performance, Clinton will present a multiple turntable and remote-activated percussion spatial piece that will bathe the audience in the microscopic sonic details of shattered vinyl, melted flexidiscs, stressed turntable mechanisms and the secret aural lives of objects.
