Thylacine has been reviewed in Vital Weekly 1158
This is a very fine release, showcasing what Green does with his kinetic constructions, both out and about and inside the house. Quite different approaches at that and that is great.

Everything Is In Motion is a new multi-turntable installation/kinetic sound sculpture that will be debuting at next week’s One Night In Footscray Festival.
The work is driven by four turntables underneath a series of suspended objects, striking items placed on each turntable. The suspension itself is sympathetic to the action below, it’s course and sway influenced by each strike on the objects circling underneath. Everything is in motion, nothing is stable.
The installation will run from 5-10pm on Friday 23 November, inside the MetroWest shopping arcade, accessible from entrances at 47 Paisley St, and the corner of Paisley and Albert Sts (near the Millennium Clinic). The preparations will be altered throughout the evening as part of a compositional structure I’ve written. Feel free to sit with the work and experience it’s rhythms for an extended period, or just drop in for a minute. It would also be worthwhile returning through the evening at different times to check in with how the work develops/decays, in between exploring other events as part of the One Night In Footscray festival (which are all free).
CURRENT, the interdisciplinary improvisation festival, returns for it’s second instalment of the year on 10-11 November. This time it is curated by Michael McNab and Candice Boyd.

Another new release, hot on the heels of Thylacine. Some intensive recording work over the past year is starting to emerge.
Clinton Green “If Good Fortune Follows A Fellow” cassette/digital (Chemical Imbalance, 2018) Two different sides of recent turntable manipulation/output. Side A uses audio signal output noise from a misplaying “How To Be A Ventriliquist” LP found in Auckland, agitated by layers of cardboard and a suspended fingerdrum. Side B changes stride to a meditative percussive work generated by four turntables arranged with overlapping acoustic preparations. The cassette is a limited edition of 25 numbered copies, each individually packed with a Merz assemblage/lucky dip of objects/detrius collected/constructed by myself and Chemical Imbalance label overlord, Mitch Soden (includes download code).
An excerpt is also featured on the new Chemical Imbalance Label Sampler #10.
Fielding is a new installation at RMIT that I’ve contributed a sound work to. Spend some time with it when you are in the area.
Text from Catherine Clover and Jordan Lacey:
This art/science collaboration has been a long time coming and it’s so rewarding to finally have it installed. The project addresses the role of sound in the greening of our cities and how sound is integral to a rich biodiversity in the complexity of the urban environment. It works as a prototype for potential applications across cities, and its impact on the site in terms of human well-being will be monitored throughout its installation (three months minimum).
Working with Jordan Lacey and Kim de Kretser we collaborated with scientists Sarah Bekessy and Freya Thomas. Through RMIT’s Landscape Architecture department via Jock Gilbert and Holly Hein, the structure was designed by students Meyrick Buchanan, Lewis Rosin and Winthur Fernandez, and realised by RMIT’s property services contractor Programmed. With audio contributions from Viv Corringham, Kathy Hinde, Leanne Waterhouse, Clinton Green, Sarah Edwards, Michael Graeve, Josh Wodak, Martin Kay, Camilla Maling and Angela Clarke. The soundscape was designed by MA student Sophie Gleeson using the compositional approaches of Pascal Amphoux and the interactivity by Industrial Design student Edward Rossi. A catalogue will accompany the launch (early November date tbc) which will include drawings by Jake Clover
Location: RMIT University Melbourne city campus in the Sunken Courtyard, close to Russell Street and borders the north wall of the old Melbourne gaol.
