“Perform your duties in an unselfish spirit…without desiring any result” – Sri Ramakrishna “Advice to householders”
CURRENT is a communal inter-disciplinary event that has taken place for several years on a roughly-annual basis. Initially forming as celebration of music improvisation from trios who had never played together before, CURRENT evolved to welcome a range of disciplines, including variously focussing on dance, visual art, and domestic ritual. CURRENT as a live performance event cannot take place under the current COVID-19 situation, but rather than see this as a restriction, CURRENT 2020 will be an opportunity to break those barriers previously imposed by being present at a particularly venue on a particular date. The 2020 theme is ‘Householders’: how can we relate, create, collaborate in new ways whilst largely confined to our homes. As in the past new ensembles will be formed to create a new work, but instead of a live performance, the new work will be conveyed via a video on a dedicated YouTube channel. Stay tuned as the results appear online over coming weeks and months.
All the way back from 1994…
This is a free/pay-what-you-feel download, but as Bandcamp a waiving all revenue for 24 hours from midnight on Friday 1 May (that’s from 5pm AEST time Australia), do check out my other Bandcamp releases, as funds from all purchases during this period will go 100% to artists.
QUIET NOISE IX HAS BEEN POSTPONED:
“After some thought and discussion with family, I regret we’ve decided to postpone Saturday’s event. This a conservative response to the Corona virus pandemic that will soon be upon us. It seems to me that these sort of events/gatherings will be discouraged or even banned within a number of weeks, so I have concluded that there is no point waiting for that and to take some prudent action now. Quiet Noise is such a special annual event for me, I’d be devastated if anyone got sick as a result. At worst, this is a silly overreaction; if so, I can live with that. We will have tarab and Chun-Liang Liu again sometime in future (note: this decision has nothing to do with them).”

in-Stability was the performance series that ran during last year’s Stability exhibition, where performers were invited to interact with my sound sculptures and/or projections.
Below is video documentation of some of those performances.
