Moving Scores - Bluestone Church Arts - 3 & 4 Oct 2013

3 Shades Black presents: Moving Scores

Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th of October, 8pm.

Bluestone Church Arts Venue, Hyde st, Footscray (Near Napier st)

$20/15
 

Moving Scores is an exciting collaboration between new music ensemble 3 Shades Black, and moving image artists. New films made by composers and visual artists will be screened and performed live as graphic scores.

Moving Scores is taking experimental music notation and putting it in motion. We’ve taken the map and made it a GPS. Come hear the image and see the music!

3 Shades Black is thrilled to bring their flagship show, Moving Scores, back to the Melbourne Fringe! Since 2011 we’ve been to Beijing and Auckland, and collected new amazing scores along the way. While joining film and music is familiar, this blending of scores and film is taking a new and exciting direction in the melding of sometimes disparate creative worlds.

More Talk, Less Action: "Junk Music" - West Space - 3 Oct 2013

The More Talk, Less Action series of discussion-based events continues with two more instalments in October:

Thursday 3 October 2013 (7:30pm) – $10 entry (Book online)
Junk Music: redundant technology and detourned devices as instruments.
Featuring: Ernie Althoff, Joanne Cannon, Rod Cooper, Bent Leather Band.
Moderated by Clinton Green.
Facebook event


Three of Australia's most respected experimental instrument makers discuss the ideas, techniques and inspirations behind their use of recycled materials and redundant technologies to create new instruments and sonic situations. From gutted laser printers to gramophones and cooking pots, the discussion promises to be a veritable trash'n'treasure of musical innovation. Includes performances by Ernie Althoff and Bent Leather Band on music machines of their own making.

The next instalment in the series follows later in the month:

Wednesday 23 October 2013, (7:30pm) – $10 entry (Book online)
Our Ears are now in Excellent Condition: sound in the gallery and online.
Featuring: Alice Hui-Sheng Chang, Helen Grogan and Rosalind Hall.
Moderated by Rowan McNaught and Kelly Fliedner.

New on Shame File Music mailorder

Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh “Stations” cassette - These recordings were made in preparation for the live performance of a piece of the same name, but in this excerpted/recording context it is the sound of a deep curiosity / fascination with the lives of objects. Metal, ceramic, wood are subjected to scraping, bowing and clattering. organic percussive movement emerges and retreats along with prepared / broken turntable accompaniment. Acoustic chamber concrète. Limited edition of 25 numbered copies.

Bogong Electric Festival - West Space - 2 Oct & Nov 2013


Bogong ELECTRIC Festival Launch

02 Oct 2013

Festival Launch
West Space at 7PM
Level 1, 225 Bourke Street
 Melbourne, Vic, 3000
Featuring performances and artworks by Rod Cooper, Madelynne Cornish and Philip Samartzis comprising images and sounds of the Kiewa Hydroelectric scheme.
----------------------------

Bogong ELECTRIC
01 Nov 2013 — 01 Dec 2013
Festival Launch at West Space
October 2, 7.00pm
Bogong ELECTRIC is a free site-specific exhibition and performance program focusing on the Kiewa Hydroelectric scheme. Curated by Dr Philip Samartzis and Madelynne Cornish, Bogong ELECTRIC is designed to investigate the relationship between the natural and constructed environment using artistic practices that thematically reference electricity within the process of production and presentation. The interplay between artworks and site will provide a diverse range of encounters and experiences for audiences. Bogong ELECTRIC will take place at Bogong Village and features a broad range of national and international artists.
First developed in the 1930s, the hydroelectric scheme is the first of its kind, and the second largest overall in mainland Australia. Since its inception it has evolved to comprise four power stations and attendant infrastructure including dams, rail sidings, substations and networks of tunnels and aqueducts for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The scheme begins at an altitude of 1800 meters at Rocky Valley and Pretty Valley reservoirs where snowmelt is periodically released into an interlinked series of power stations and dams distributed along the Kiewa Valley starting with McKay Creek and followed by Bogong and Clover, concluding with the West Kiewa power station before its eventual release into the Kiewa River, a major tributary of the Murray River.
The Australian Alps produces 80% of Australia’s fresh water supply yet only comprises 1% of its landmass. While the bulk of it is designated as a national park, the Australian Alps are also the site of quite complex industrial and commercial enterprises including alpine resorts and hydroelectric power schemes. Hydroelectricity is posited as a sustainable source of renewable energy. Through massive earthworks and complex technical infrastructure, pressurized water is mobilized to generate the electricity required to power the everyday spaces that we inhabit. The range of infrastructure used to exploit the gravitational force of falling or flowing water including turbines, pumps, sub stations, dams and aqueducts and the manner in which they inhabit the natural environment provides a rich source for investigation for a wide range of artists.
The relationship between the natural and constructed environment used to collect and exploit this water supply is quite complex and variegated, providing a compelling subject for consideration given the current discourse surrounding sustainable methods of energy production. Bogong ELECTRIC seeks to expand understanding of the environmental effects of hydroelectricity by direct and indirect encounters of the scheme through installation and performance works, soundscape composition and Internet connectivity.

Tanin-e Melbourne - Wesley Anne - 26 Sept 2013

Every year, Melbourne’s thriving music community comes together to celebrate music in all its forms at the Darebin Music Feast. This rich and diverse collection of musical events of all genres is built on the philosophy that music brings people together. It is a joyous means of engaging and uniting the community. As part of this years Feast Gelareh Pour and Anatman will grace the stage at The Wesley Anne with beautiful and melodic sounds from around the world.

Gelareh Pour's Tanin-e Melbourne...
Gelareh presents her soothing and hypnotic group Tanin-e Melbourne as seen at this years Festival of Slow Music. Playing acoustic versions of tracks from her debut album of the same name, Tanin-e Melbourne create beautiful rhythms and haunting sounds where east meets west and becomes as one. Fronted by Gelareh Pour's angelic voice and Kamancheh (spiked fiddle), this performance will feature Adam Simmons on Shakuhachi/Bass Clarinet, Brian O'Dwyer on Percussion and Ashkhan Shafeie on Guitar.

Anatman...
Anatman play folky, yet experimental music incorporating tabla, classical guitar, melodica, glockenspiel and the looping of these and various other instruments. Without knowing where the inspiration comes from, or where the music is going, Anatman is on a comprehensive search to find their sound, with the sincere hope that they will never find it.

Doors: 7:30

Anatman: 8:30

Tuesday September 24th @ the Make It Up Club

This week at MIUC we delve deep into the world of circuitry, current and the vociferous amplification thereof with three distinctly different approaches to the cover-all term of ''electronics''. Miles Brown makes (up) his way through murky, darkness-drenched soundscapes with his trusty theremin in tow, using heterodyning oscillators to illustrate why his unearthly auditory weapon of choice was originally knows as the aetherphone. Ceri Hann is a public-embracing artist whose practice is rich in the sublimity of the quotidian, with little regard for delineations between the importance of the audible/tangible/visible/gustatory and high/low dichotomy, and he will create sounds for listeners. And spontaneous string-slaughterers Be Nice To Us play guitars like Adolph Rickenbacker destroyed everything they've ever loved in flurries of MPC-driven plodding noisecore bliss. And the symbiotic trio of Reuben Lewis, Geoff Hughes and Ronny Ferella take to the Bar Open stage again for some free jazz sonics ranging from intimately delicate to all-out firebrandism.

Tuesday September 17th @ the Make It Up Club

This Tuesday at MIUC is another diverse demonstration of the liberated state of modern music, a bumper four-act celebration of the sonodemocracy that we are lucky enough to live in where no texture or tone colour is discriminated against. Extreme free jazz clashes with extreme free noise as Sam Dunscombe pays homage to one of the most intense reed-abusers to ever have lived, Japanese saxophonist Kaoru Abe, by hyperextending his clarinet with electronic means and attempting to top Abe's signature abrasiveness. Using a couple of pads, microkeyboards and a netbook or two, legendary electroacoustic microtonalist Warren Burt indulges in sonic construction, exploring the inner workings of teeny-tiny tunings without the least hint of sonic destruction or mechagodzillian teddy-bear dismantlement. Hammers Lake is the indeterminate trio of cellist Judith Hamann, vocaliser Carolyn Connors and a different percussionist each performance, in this case VCA's Head of Percussion Peter Neville - but whilst their membership isn't always the same the marvel that is their masterful improvisation and interplay most certainly is. And Perth-based digital data doyen Kynan Tan further explores the potentialities of the computer as a transporter to transcendence, a strategy to the sublime, an audible interpretation of Gysin's dreamachine.

If you are coming by car there is no parking on Bell Street, but you should be able to find some in York Street which is just around the corner. The last stop on the 55 tram at Bell Street will get you nearby. Holdings is about a 5 block walk west from there. If you can get to Bell or Coburg Station the 513 bus will take you pretty much across the road. Just ask to get off before Reynolds Parade. Holdings is across the road from a 7-Eleven (which is on the corner of Reynolds & Bell) if you need a landmark.

More Talk, Less Action - West Space - 19 Sept 2013

Laptops, Costumes, Pedals and Projections: issues for live performance of experimental, drone and noise music




"Music can you take you somewhere. Lots of music takes me nowhere at all.
Sometimes, it is interesting to hear, but I’m left wanting more. I want an experience, to be in a zone that is fluid, unpredictable and inclusive, shaped by the audience, with an element of risk." - Paul Kidney.

Laptops, Costumes, Pedals and Projections: issues for live performance of experimental, drone and noise music – Thursday 19 September 2013, 7:30pm, at West Space, Level 1, 225 Bourke St, Melbourne

Is it enough for musicians to hunch over a laptop or a bank of effects pedals and let the sound speak for itself? Do audiences have the right to expect to be entertained? Does an undue emphasis on movement and visuals detract from the music? Our panel includes musicians who push the boundaries of conventional performance. Short demonstrations by the Hi-God People and Michael Pulsford will explore the possibilities for performance of experimental music.

On the panel are:

Julian Williams (has been involved in experimental music and theatre for 25 years, and is known for his performance group The Hi-God People and a series of indie bands, solo recordings and plays/movement pieces)

Paul Kidney (mild-mannered nurse by day, by night freaksound DJ of Ear Of The Behearer and front thing for improv/psych/noise collective The Paul Kidney Experience)

Michael Pulsford (teaches performance and live art at RMIT's School of Art, and is an improvising drummer)

Moderated by More Talk, Less Action co-curator, Greg Wadley.

More Talk, Less Action is a series of events incorporating both discussion and performances on specific themes of relevance to contemporary practice of experimental music, noise and sound art.

Ernie Althoff: the concept of organised sound (article in Overland magazine online)

In a shopfront gallery on Brunswick Street experimental composer and performer Ernie Althoff sets up his homemade music machines on a table. The machines are simple structures that are designed to simultaneously be played, play by themselves, and respond to the vagaries of a spinning pendulum, the wind, or any number of other external elements. It is mid-winter and some of the audience have gone out in the freezing wind to smoke, others are poring over stands of CDs and records for sale. Leads are plugged in; tiny motors begin to rotate, sending the fragile self-playing instruments into motion. The crowd are still conversing, but slowly, attention turns to the machines. Vertical strips of sheet metal twist like leaves in the wind, catch on suspended nails, or touch the inside of an empty tin can. The turning and spinning create a pleasantly arrhythmic series of chiming tones. He places a golf ball in a large flattened bowl, moving it around, producing a kind of rolling bass. He adds a shaker to the mix, waggles metallic clapping sticks, taps a toy drum. Irregular yet synchronized. He is constantly adjusting, shifting, and varying his devices. The effect is an intimate sound experience.

Tuesday September 10th @ the Make It Up Club

This week at Make It Up Club the audial barrage does not stop, as we offer up three doses of sonic punishment for improv diehards with a penchance for all-out brutality. Three gentlemen who have absorbed much inspiration from the aesthetic ferocity of grindcore and extreme metal, Sean ''Blaster'' Baxter on percussives, Pete ''Howler'' Hyde on vocal abuse and Chris ''Shredder'' Nylstoch on six-string mangling, together should prove for a truly terrifying trip into the sonoverse. Two druids of Melbournian drone, Bonnie Mercer and Toby Matthews, evoke dense, viscous chunks of tone from their guitars to transport listeners into a world of disorientatingly blissful psychedelia. And Brian O'Dwyer, Gelareh Pour and Mick Trembath draw from a wide range of musical catalysts including free jazz, traditional Iranian music and southern-fried blues, but just in case that's not sufficiently diverse they will be joined by butoh dancer Shiro Mu

Tuesday September 3rd @ the Make It Up Club

For this edition of MIUC we are thrilled to play host to some of the finest improvisers Australia has ever produced, in a veritable feast for the cerebrum guaranteed to set synapses firing and dopamine levels spiking. Golden Fur get back to their improvisatory roots for their first show together in over a year, exciting the auditory cortex to make sense of tonal textures both unfamiliar and stunning. Marco Fusinato and Robin Fox barrage cerebella with thick tumultuous waves of electronic cacophony, eliciting emotional extremes from the nucleus accumbens without purveying a shred of literal meaning. And post-folk wunderkind Francis Plagne makes his first solo foray into the realm of spontaneous music, variously satisfying and violating sonic and cultural expectations to the point that your prefrontal cortex won't be certain if he's comfortingly customary or anomalously alienating. Certainly one not to miss.
