White Woods - Tote - 31 Mar 2011

(forwarded from Kieran Hegarty):


-------------------

White Woods with Angel Eyes, Super Star and Actual Holes

Thursday 31st March at the Tote Hotel, Collingwood, Melbourne

Facebook event

White Woods are the harshest prism of pop sounds going round. The white light being their pop smarts, while their sturdy, tumbling rhythm section, mixed with dual rust knifed guitar playing, droning keys, leave a trail of sounds bursting out in that spectrum that is just damned right. Comparisons kicking around of White Woods to some of the jingle jangle examples of flying nun are vaguely valid, but there is something a little more unnerving here in that dilapidated, back street, alley way, night walking, by yourself kinda way.

Synth and guitar duo, Superstar profess their music stylings as ‘floating’. Beneath, a synthetic drum machine eerily keeps this thing creeping along while drawn out synth chord progressions turn back into themselves, while stealthily uncovering variations as seconds turn into minutes and a single minute into ten. A constant drizzle of elegant and affected guitar ‘licks’ echo out, and softly hit the mark every time. And if you listen carefully, languid vocal melodies will blow bubbles up your spine. Floating City!

Another lone creator of the Melbourne sort is Angel Eyes. His heavily refracted guitar lines twang and echo in the foreground while tranced keyboard tones shimmer like the northern lights above a plodding, rusted minimalist drum machine march. Eventually stepping to the mic, the vocals boom out, low and somber and smeared across a shadowy reverb chamber dome.

The trio, Actual Holes is made up of duel saxophones and drums. These are hell for leather improv faux jazz workouts – at their extremes the sonic equivalent of a well-dressed barfly or some high speed street violence. They can seduce and they can scare. Don’t be surprised however, if you find yourself humming some jagged melodic motif as you head home – not knowing quite where it came from. That would be Actual Holes, in your memory, actual holes.

Tuesday March 29th @ the Make It Up Club

A global night this week at MIUC. From San Diego, Joe Mariglio focuses on the aggressive spectrum of electronic improvisation, though still coming from a collaborative empathy that has seen him perform with the likes of Anthony Braxton. Avant troubadour, Mike Cooper returns, this time in a highly anticipated duo with local guitarist extraordinaire, Alex Garsden. And one of Australia's most versatile and adventurous double bass players, Rory Brown teams up with a longstanding collaborator in Dale Gorfinkel.

Atticus - FortyFiveDownstairs - 28 Mar 2011

(forwarded from Judith Hamann):
------------------------

My latest repertoire project Atticus perform their first concert this March, featuring string quartets from the past two decades. This is a new group formed with three dear string playing friends, who are all dedicated to the performance of new music for string quartet.

In a concert of stark contrasts in both style and intensity, with each member contributing repertoire ideas, Atticus will perform the Australian premiere of Liza Lim's exploration of fragility and instability in 'HELL' (1992) and the world premiere of Shaun Rigney's 'The Circular Ruins' (2004). The concert also features the subtle rhythmic shifting of Wally Gunn's 'Skin and Bone' (2006) and finally, rarely heard in Australia, Helmut Lachenmann’s 'Streichquartette No.3 Grido’ (2002), a visceral and demanding exploration of acoustic concrete that stretches the very limits of the technical and timbral possibilities of the string quartet.

Liza Lim - HELL

Sabbatical presents: Justice Yeldham


(Originally posted on the Sabbatical blog)

Globe-trotting glass eater Lucas Abela has made a career out of exploring the extreme side of sound. First it was with turntables attached to saw horses with sewing machine motors, briefly Freddy Krugger-styled record needle gloves, then it was a contact mic'd trampoline. For the last few years, under the guise of Justice Yeldham, it's been glass.

Starting each performance with a large sheet of glass, a contact mic and an array of effect pedals. Performances last as long as the glass can withstand the pressure of Mr Abela's face.

Sabbatical is proud to present this rare Justice Yeldham performance as Mr Abela stops over in Melbourne on his way to who knows where.

KIPL custodians and all-round excellent gents Wife will kick off proceedings, followed by the interminable noise assault of Fucked. Offering a welcome respite, Miles Brown & Shags Chamberlain will cleanse the aural palette with their theremin and synth explorations.

Finally, Justice Yeldham will perform on a couch. Seriously, that was his only rider request - a couch to perform on.

It's an early start for an early end. It is a Monday night after all.

DEFEKTRO @ The Tote 20/03/11


 "Many in Melbourne first witnessed the power of Defektro Live at KTL (Featuring Stephen O'Malley of SUNN O))) in June 2008. And it has been a long long wait for his return.
In the time between, "Metal_And_Bone_Servitude", a studio collaboration between Defektro and The Bastard Noise was released, selling out almost instantly and becoming a cult hit with lovers of noise worldwide.
Formed in Tokyo, Japan in 1995 as a three piece industrial/noise unit, Defektro is currently the one man operation of Hirofumi Uchino and based in Sydney.
Hirofumi is known and respected worldwide as much for the instruments and effects pedals he builds as the extreme forms of music he creates with them.

Live performances from this truly unique artist are all too rare. It is with great honour that WeEmptyRooms is able to present this event with such a quality lineup at one of Melbourne's greatest live venues.

Also WeEmptyRooms will be doing some killer deals on all label stock and distro at the mercy desk so vinyl lovers bring ya dosh."

I'd like to introduce myself to all the other scientists out there by sharing a couple of recent mixes.

The first is called Nonlinear Dynamics and is a selection of immersive, ambient soundscapes. These tracks have been close to my heart during my travels through South East Asia; making sunsets, airports and strange locations all the more interesting. I've now been settled in Melbourne for the last six months and hope to get involved with the scene and meet some like minded people who share the same passions.

Breath and the occult art of the ancient XYZ coordinate radiomap feature in this week's concert. Sydney voice artist Tony Osborne returns with his extended, jumbled and reconfigured explorations of the possibilities of vocal enunciation and (in)communicative action. RCKTSURGRY make a rare appearance that expands the limits of the space/time/sound intra-dimension. And the raw power of really smooth screeching/howling by local voice-master, Shane Van Den Akker.

Polemic – 'Drone is not good enough anymore'

Earlier on in the lifespan of this blog, I wanted to have discussion topics on relevant issues (like this one), but this idea didn’t go very far, mainly because I didn’t want to post topics just for the sake of it. But this one has been bugging me a for a while. And inspired by this recent much-overdue tirade against Harsh Noise complacency, I've decided to open my big mouth.

I don’t think I’m alone in being privately critical of the amount of noise/improv/sound art performers currently who offer live performances that consist of droning tones/noise and little else. I’m going to step up now and publically say that this is no longer good enough to justify me seeing your live performance.

I don’t know if it is my age and the fact that I’ve been seeing a lot of noise gigs for a long time, but it is all getting very old and uninteresting.

We’ve all been there, including myself - ‘People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’ but I’m not throwing stones, I’m issuing a challenge.

Can we make an attempt to make these performances more interesting? Like, more structure than the usual soft/loud or slow to fast oscillations? If you are relying exclusively on drone/noise that does not vary in any other way, your drone better be tonally/texturally a thing of great beauty. Dare we suggest the taboo word ‘composition’? It doesn’t need to mean dots on paper in this sense, just a bit more thought into planning a performance so it isn’t this same old thing.

It is debatable if a straight up noise/drone performance can even be considered experimental music anymore, even in the broadest sense of the term, unless ‘experimental music’ is becoming a genre in itself.

Partly this may be due to the burgeoning live scene over the past few years, as this blog is testament to; a development that is fantastic in itself. But it is time to develop, not stagnate.

Love to hear what people think about this – please post your comments here.

Steve Law/Zen Paradox

Steve Law has been producing electronic music in Australia since the early 1980′s. During that time he has gained a reputation as one of Australia’s foremost electronic artists, creating and performing music in almost every sub-genre that has been spawned over the past couple of decades.
After exploring many areas of electronic experimentation with the groups Guild of Fire, Foil and various solo projects, Steve formed the techno project Zen Paradox in 1992. The debut album “Eternal Brainwave” was immediately signed to Ollie Olsen’s new Psy-Harmonics label, and licensed to KK/Nova Zembla in Europe and Restless in the U.S. to critical acclaim, and was a huge success. Steve went on to release further material under the Zen Paradox banner during the nineties, backed up with extensive and successful overseas tours. He was named best live electronic act at the 2000 Australian Live Music Awards.
In the meantime, Steve Law continued to explore other areas of cutting edge music, and was awarded the inaugral ABC classic FM computer music award in 1996 for his electro-acoustic composition “Urbania”. He has composed music for film, dance and various multi-media works, and has contributed to the Fringe, Next Wave, Experimenta, Electrofringe, Liquid Architecture, Articulating Space, Make it Up Club and Melbourne International Animation festivals.
Steve has collaborated with many other local and international artists, both live and in the studio, and has continued to release music on various labels around the world. He is an inspired live performer, regularly doing impromptu live improvisations with many of Melbourne’s underground musicians. He is also a member of the Melbourne band Black Cab.

Tuesday March 8th @ the Make It Up Club

This week, we focus on the humble turntable as an instrument of endless improvisational possibilities. Detourned, prepared, extended and plunderfied, the performances tonight exemplify the avant garde tradition of the record player, eschewing the popular creation-myth that it's origins as an instrument lie in hip-hop and techno, and re-instilling it's modernist roots and contemporary deconstructions in postmodern noise practice. Clinton Green's Undecisive God emphasises creation through destruction, manipulating broken records and cracked systems. Riki-Metisse Marlow and Gabriel Carazo premiere their new turntable duo, which focuses on the record player as a mechanism for spontaneous sound sculpture. Ryan Cockburn deconstructs the machine to display it's inner sonic logic. And, the enfent terrible of the Melbourne no-noise scene, Lloyd Honeybrook, reminds us of the visceral beauty and volatile nature of the turntable as a postmodern version of the intonorumori.
