  • Ren Walters & Clinton Green – perform a duo with sheets of metal recently retrieved from the bush north of Mildura.
  • Derek McCormack – solo performance from recent Improv Idol finalist!

This year, Tilde New Music Academy and The Channel at Arts Centre Melbourne hosts three discussion events centred on contemporary art and experimental music practice. 

Tickets are available from the Arts Centre Website (please note the dates and times below when booking your ticket). $15 full/$10 conc.

In Depth #1: On Improvisation and Spontaneous Collaboration


Sunday the 15th of January, 2pm to 3:30pm

Aviva Endean and Mohamed Kubbara (or Gary Butler)

In Depth #2: On Audiovisual Performance and Composition

Monday the 16th of January, 7pm to 8:30pm

Brigid Burke

A performance of TRANSIT Plus by Brigid Burke followed by a discussion of contemporary audiovisual performance and composition.

TRANSIT Plus is series of performance works that consists of Instinct and Episodes, Green Skies….Moments and TRANSIT for Bb/Bass clarinet, electronics and live video. These compositions reference the environment, architecture of the surrounding areas, sonic and visual improvisation/composition with the creation of multi-layered juxtapositions. These three compositions create linkages between location, audience, artist, and cultural/conceptual space. They explore the roles of visual and sonic representation, communicating with the audience in creating a shared surreal/hyperrealism space with tangible moments.

IN DEPTH #3: On Commissioning, Collaboration, and Solo Performance

Tuesday the 17th of January, 7pm-8:30pm.

Phoebe Green (viola), Ben Opie (oboe), Hannah Reardon-Smith (flute)

New on Shame File Music/mailorder
 
Ren Walters/Clinton Green/Michael McNab "At the Salt Museum" CD/digital - In December 2015, these three Melbourne musicians camped at Murray Sunset National Park in northern Victoria, Australia, sounding various sites and performing ritualistic actions. This album documents our interactions with rusted salt harvesting machinery discovered at the outdoor 'salt museum' on the shore of the Lake Crosbie saltpan.
 
 
 
Two tracks available for free streaming. Download the complete 5 track album for $7. Limited edition CD in four panel digipak coming in February, pre-order now for special price of $10+postage (includes full album download) -  https://shamefilemusic.bandcamp.com/album/at-the-salt-museum
 
Splinter Orchestra "Mungo" 3CD - In March 2016 a 21-piece Splinter Orchestra (featuring the likes of Jim Denley, Laura Altman and Peter Farrar) drove from their native Sydney to Adelaide, to perform as part of the Tectonics Festival. Midway they spent 3 days recording in the vast desert recording studio that is Mungo National Park. The new 3 CD set, ‘MUNGO’, their first release in 10 years, presents an argument for a creative collective, sensitive to time/space — one that treats all the participants, be they performers, other species, or the wind, as equal players.

Launch: Todd Anderson-Kunert's 'Almost there' with supports, Aeso Studio, Fitzroy.

Please join us in the release of 'Almost there' by Todd Anderson-Kunert, produced over the last two years. Here is a video that explains the work, but note that it contains material that may offend. It was constructed using vibrators that are sonically controlled, and some very trusting contributors.

For more information please see:

facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/385934651758429/

NOTE: 'Almost there' is currently not able to performed live, and so Todd Anderson-Kunert will be playing a different solo electronic set on the night.
