A showcase of Melbourne instrument builders – new, developing and established – performing with their creations in three duos:

Clinton Green & Ernie Althoff – perform their back-to-back prepared turntable work ‘Blindfold test’ – https://shamefilemusic.bandcamp.com/album/blindfold-test

Tina Douglas & Michelle Nguyen – Michelle builds reactive audio sculptures and sound-triggering slime pots. Tina uses conductive painting and objects to trigger sound – https://www.tinadouglas.net/sound-video-performance/. This is their first time playing together.

Jen Tait & Zela Papageorgiou – Zela is a percussionist who has been mentored by Speak Percussion in instrument building and worked with a variety of unconventional objects. Jen (of Squirrel Pancake, Is There a Hotline? and many more) builds electronic thumb pianos and makes music with odd household items – https://squirrelpancake.bandcamp.com/album/mental-detective . This is a first-time duo as well.

There will also be an opportunity for informal discussion about the instruments used, approaches taken, etc.
