Avantwhatever Monthly – September 2016 
 Adam Nash A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes Kawai Yoshitake 
 The Alderman 134 Lygon St Brunswick Wednesday September 14 Entry $10 | 7pm for a 7:30pm start 
 Performer details: 
 Adam Nash 
 Adam Nash makes playable media. He’ll be playing his art music game Pure Absence live. 
 A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes 
 A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes is a blank slate, heavily informed by work in radio making (Radio National, Paper Radio, Better Off Dead, Wiluna Remote Community School) and music (Speed Painters, ii, Aleks and the Ramps). Curious about the parameters set by a live performance (time, amplification, contained space, physical activity, assumptions of attention), A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes will (probably) be a sounded response to a handful of questions: 
Is it valuable to sound nice? What is entertaining? Are stories distracting? How do performers manage audience attention? What do we all wish to achieve by being present, and to what extent can we satisfy all parties? 
 Kawai Yoshitake 
 Kawai Yoshitake is visiting Melbourne from Japan, while he is here he has been listening to what the city has to offer and making some beats of his own.
