New stuff on Shame File Music


Ernie Althoff "Colour Chart" CD - 18 recordings of Althoff's solo music machines that are intimate in the sonic detail and delicate percussiveness, as they gently beat away like they were right next to your ear. Limited edition of 100, with unique handmade covers by Althoff

Ernie Althoff "For Two on Blue/Saturday Stories" cassette - Side A is a duo with Warren Burt for environmental sound, found objects and Althoff's unique music machines. Side B was conceived as a radio piece in which Althoff takes us on a journey through Melbourne's Victoria Market and his thoughts about adapting some of the toys he sees there into instruments. Recorded in 1987, only a handful of this classic Althoff tape still remain.
Various Artists "Best Seats in the House! Melbourne Improvisors' Association at the Limerick Arms Hotel, 1991" cassette - This live document of the Melbourne experimental improv scene from the early 1990s includes Graeme Leak, Puppenspiel, Ernie Althoff, Warren Burt and many more. Only a couple of copies left.
Chris Mann "A Machine for Making Sense" cassette - Mann's extraordinary textual/speech performances are rarely available, and this recording from the late 1980s/early 1990s is a compelling example of his "compositional linguistics", where his rapid fire speech creates textures full of cadence and idea-upon-idea that is Joycean in scale. Only one copy left.
Various Artists "Artefacts of Australian experimental music" volume II 1974-1983" double CD - special pre-order deals available for a limited time - out in November.

WAR MACHINE Richard Pilkington performing with the War Machine effects the output of a no-input mixing desk through a customized Max/MSP patch. The sonic results can vary from subtle ambience to harsh brutal noise. The performance is improvised live in response to the inner and outer conditions of the performer and the conflicts and harmonies that arise"

Tuesday October 26th @ the Make It Up Club

The Australian free improvisation tradition would be a poorer place without David Tolley, one of the motivating forces behind the MIUC, and a mentor of great stature for so many radical musicians from the last century. This week, the MIUC is honoured to welcome him back to performance duties, and with a legendary group, no less. The ReMOVALISTS feature some of Melbourne's most dedicated exploratory improvisers who have been refining their craft and inspiring the rest of us for decades. Adam Simmons needs no introduction, as one of the many masters of woodwinds in all their complex variation. And further masters in Chris Young and Tom Fryer, in a very rare duo performance.

SABBATICAL PRESENTS 241010

Sunday 24 October, Melbourne based advocates of buried sound Sabbatical present a fascinating lineup of local explorers at The Workers Club (Cnr Brunswick and Gertrude Streets Fitzroy). Opening the evening is the duo of Mitchell Brennan and Fjorn Butler, pursued for a Melbourne outing after an excellent set centred on junk instrumentation and digital signal processing at Vox Cyclops in Newcastle over the TINA weekend recently. Judith Hamann follows with a solo cello performance, exploring the timbral and sonic possibilities of the instrument through preparations, alterations and alternative methods of physical engagement. The duo of James Rushford and Joe Talia then offer works that are part instrumental concréte, part ambient drone. This accomplished duo uses prepared viola and tabletop percussion to create sounds more akin to a modular synthesiser than acoustic instruments. Closing the evening is the Dead Boomers industrial harsh noise duo of Mark Groves and Leith Thomas, accompanied in this instance by Dan Crow of local grindcore unit Odiusembowel on drums. A virulent close to proceedings is assured, ideal when bracing for an impending Monday morning. 7pm / $6.50

undue noise bendigo october 16


Undue Noise
Sat 16th October 2010, 8pm $10

Old Fire Station, View St Bendigo

Enquiries: jacques@cajid.com; 0421786595


An exciting program this time, with films by Daylesford based Richard Touhy, who had a superb film shown at this year's Melbourne International Film Festival, the return of two Bendigo sound artists from the earlier days of undue noise, and a new local collaboration


The films of Richard Touhy

Situated in the materialist film tradition, Tuohy’s films exhibit a fascination with both the power of the mechanical cine camera, as well as the possibilities of experimental laboratory processes, frequently using natural environments and nature-scapes as the ‘gorund’ for his experimentation and abstraction. This selection includes two multi-projector expanded 16mm works.

Rotteur

Rotteur has been an ongoing project since first inception in 2000. Initially a studio-based melange of noise and industrial influences, it has developed to encompass live performance, focusing primarily on the domain of dark ambient. Sometimes abrasive, sometimes meditative, Rotteur makes cold, desolate soundscapes, haunted by droning machinery and sparse abstracted electronics. It’s intention is to explore the deepest abysses and undercurrents of the psyche; to dissolve all illusions. A hymn to the sub-terrain of emptiness, isolation and decay inherent in modern civilisation. (Darcy Long, using the names sig.int and rotteur was a regular in the early days of undue noise)

The Lonely Drone
The Lonely Drone is the alias of former Bendigo guitarist Jesse Lynch, from the band Pioneers Of Good Science. The Lonely Drone sound is a unique balance of lofi guitar drones & effect pedal manipulation cooked up into a dense fog of sound. Incorporating multiple layers of ambience, melody and texture.

Scott Sanders & Simon Howard

a new local collaboration - guitar, electronics, keyboard

  • TOMUTONTTU (Jan Anderzén from Kemialliset Ystävät - Finland)
  • MUD BRICK COUCH (Jarrod Zlatic solo)
  • SIMON TAYLOR
  • TIM COSTER
  • DJ THE CRUSHER
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • TOMUTONTTU
    Tomutonttu is the solo project of Jan Anderzén, a visual artist and musician from Tampere, Finland, whose pivotal role in Kemialliset Ystävät and collaborative raids in Avarus and Anaksimandros has - alongside Fonal label colleagues, Es, Paavoharju, Kuupuu, Islaja, Fricara Pacchu, Lau Nau and Shogun Kunitoki - elevated the Finnish experimental underground into a Renaissance-like state, its cross-pollinating telepathy producing some of the most acclaimed records and performances since the mid 2000s, while setting a universal example for communal musical exploration.

The most prolific of the Fonal stable and its related tributaries, Anderzen’s music has also appeared on labels such as Ultra Eczema (Lucky Dragons & Yacht, Orphan Fairytale, Wolf Eyes), Fat Cat (Animal Collective, Black Dice, Múm), Dekorder (Richard Youngs, Xela) Lal Lal Lal (The Skaters, Javelin, Keijo), Jewelled Antler (Skygreen Leopards, Steven R. Smith) and Imvated/Taped Sounds (Christina Carter, The Futurians, Ignatz, Thurston Moore, Magik Markers). In 2008, Anderzén toured and recorded on the Approximately Infinite Universe Tour: A Caravan of Raw Sound Magic from Finland and the US, with Blevin Blectum, Axolotl, Sumara Lubelski, Fursaxa and members of The Skaters and No Neck Blues Band. He has also held workshops and played a series of concerts for school children at the planetarium of his hometown.

Anderzen’s wraithlike powwow, weirdo choral ascents, elated bleeps, bubbly glossolalia and poltergeist thumps coalesce in a captivating sylvan kaleidoscope of psych hyperbole in all his projects, but it is live, in his solo incarnation as Tomutonttu that these magnetic qualities are best articulated. As unassailable blog, Mutant Sounds has described, Tomutonttu is a 'delightful traipse through a verdant forest of ergot poisoned art brut psychedelic deconstructionism; all wobbly string fumble, lobotomized key wheeze and detuned flute toot that’s wonderfully right in it's ungainly ''wrongness'''.

  • MUD BRICK COUCH
    Debut performance from Jarrod Zlatic's (Fabulous Diamonds, Free Choice) Mud Brick Couch. Expect slowed down inverted Womack & Womack vocal loops with radio static, FX/EQ processing etc.

  • SIMON TAYLOR
    Rare solo set by member of Collapsed Toilet Vietnam, Good, Krystoffkrvstoffiston, & Gauntlet. Possible guitar, reverb, drum machine epic beautifulness.

  • TIM COSTER
    Momentarily stepping away from local band Vogue Forums to knit a carpet of slowly unspooling almost-melodic textures and drones.

  • DJ THE CRUSHER
    Emma Albury from Catacomb Carousel & Eko Eko Azarak DJing the best music in the world ever.

New stuff on Shame File Music

Tangerine Nightmare - "Synthicide" On a winters night in Melbourne, 2009, three long-time practitioners of drone and noise music came together for an evening of exploration of analogue synthiser sound. Lloyd Barrett, Clinton Green (Undecisive God) & Andrew McIntosh (Screwtape) used a variety of analogue synthiser units and plug-ins to form several long improvisations that ranged from deep drones to roaring waves of oscillator noise. The results were edited down into Synthicide, available on CDR or for free download from Shame File Music - AU$10ppd or download for free

M.A.N.K./Screwtape "Eating Shit for Breakfast/They Hate Us" cassette - M.A.N.K. is Casey's (Ebola Disco, etc.) new Harsh Power Electronics project. "Eating Shit For Breakfast" is an unrestrained and uncontained expectoration of crashing and hissing distortion laced with layers of gut-wrenched shouting and screaming - apparently Taoist affirmations calculated to the Chinese year. The Screwtape side, "They Hate Us", was recorded late last year and is based around samples from Hitchock's "The Birds" combined with heavy, static synth tones. The sound of an unoffending, seaside town of nice, normal people being attacked to death by the nature, red in beak and claw, itself. - AU$7ppd
John Sangster "Marinetti Soundtrack" CD - To celebrate the 40th anniversary screening of the UBU film Marinetti, the music by John Sangster is finally seeing a soundtrack release. Drawing heavily from French Musique Concrete as well as the Avant Garde of Sun Ra and Moondog, Sangster creates a whirling mass of psychedelic mayhem. Marinetti is an amazing and rare insight into the Sydney underground of the late 60s. Twisted jazz and field recording fused with primitive sampling & film dialogue; all echo the motley sound of the acid-stained Down Underground. - AU$24ppd
Coming in November - Artefacts of Australian Experimental Music: volume II 1974-1983 double CD. Special pre-order deals and much more at Shame File Music.
