Walters/Green/McNab “At The Salt Museum” now available in full digitally

At The Salt Museum is now available in full on Bandcamp for streaming and download.

The tracks that made up this album were originally recorded on 4 December 1995, at the Murray Sunset National Park in North West Victoria. That will be 7 years ago on Sunday 4 December 2022, when Clinton Green & Michael McNab will be playing a duo in support of a rare Melbourne performance from Astasie-abasie.

A small amount of the original CD are still available.

Sounds from Shame File’s everlasting vault of exploratory musicians, performed on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong peoples’ land.

Astasie-abasie is a project of Ian Andrews which evolved out of a long running performance collaboration with Garry Bradbury. The project focuses on the amplification of small sounds (following the approach of John Cage, Gordon Mumma and David Tudor) through the capture of sounds generated by small objects by way of contact microphones, home constructed cartridges, miniature piezo microphones and conventional microphones. Various devices are used as constraints in order to distance any performing gesture of the artist from the compositional process.
Two albums “Elliptical Gamelan” (2022) and “Molecular Gamelan” (2021) have recently been released on Shame File Music –




Clinton Green & Michael McNab share a long history of improvised work in various contexts, arising out of the multi-disciplinary group THIS Ensemble and their ritualistic trio with Ren Walters. Each often works with percussive elements, and sometimes incorporate turntables, feedback, and movement, drawing on their shared experiences of sound and creation, always shifting and evolving.
Their 2016 album with Ren Walters, recorded in Murray Sunset National Park, is here –

‘Relativity/Only’ Album Launch

Relativity/Only Album Launch
Thursday 25 March 2021, 8:30pm
Avalon Bar, 387 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

My new album Relativity/Only (Nice Music/Shame File Music) will be launched later this month at Avalon (former site of Polyester Records). I will be constructing the sound sculpture that generated the music for the album (three turntables with suspensions and objects) for the event, and hopefully playing the tracks on Side A of the album on a “loop”, so to speak.

I will also be joined by Nick Ashwood and Michael McNab, and we’ll then play a “quartet” with the sound sculpture.

This will be my first live performance since September 2019!

Rehearsing with Nick & Michael

Relativity/Only is available now from Shame File Music and Nice Music.

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.
