in-Stability: Michael McNab

 

 

in-Stability is a performance series running Thursday nights through August and September as part of my Stability exhibition, where artists from a variety of disciplines are invited to perform with my kinetic sound sculpture and projection works.

Michael McNab is a percussionist and interdisciplinary sound/performance artist. Listening with an unfixed body and open eyes, his kinetic interactions with objects, collaborators and site form the material of his work. He is interested in states of play, human and non-human presence as impetuses for sound making, and spatiality and anti-virtuosity as ways to shake up audience-performer relationships.

Allanah Stewart describes her music as ‘punk music for dust mites and church mice’. She is a drummer/percussionist (who plays in local outfits Snacks and Propolis) who extends her practice into sound sculpture and instrument building. Allanah is one of the most subtle and deft percussionists I know, I’m excited to hear how she duets with my sound sculptures.

The series continues this week with my duo with Barnaby Oliver. Barnaby & I have been playing together for several years, most recently creating minimalist long-form pieces with violin and bowed metal bowls. This Thursday we will be improvising soundtracks for my video projections in the space.

Kicking off the series is one of Melbourne’s best improvising drummers in Maria Moles. The exhibition’s sound sculptures are percussive in nature, and Maria is the first of a number of percussion-based guests invited to weave her music into the automated polyrhythms of my pieces.
