Clinton Green (bowed metal bowls) and Barnaby Oliver (struck and bowed strings)
Spring (Tim Catlin and Rod Cooper)
Thursday 25 August 2022 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM
34 Breese St, Brunswick VIC 3056

Spring features Tim Catlin and Rod Cooper playing their own newly-invented instruments – Vibrissa and Steel Keys.
New track composed and recorded for this themed percussion compilation from Italian label tsss tapes Free Percussion/Water. The compilation also features Ted Byrnes, Jeph Jerman and other exploratory percussionists of note.
I’m also looking forward to releasing a collaborative album with Ian Andrews (Astasie-abasie, Cut With The Kitchen Knife, The Horse He’s Sick, etc) on tsss tapes later this year.
On the recent occasion of my 50th birthday, Nat Grant put together this radio special on some of my collaborative work for her Let Your Freak Flag Fly show on 3CR.
