Relativity/Only Album Launch Thursday 25 March 2021, 8:30pm Avalon Bar, 387 Brunswick St, Fitzroy $10
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!
Music Under Lockdown: Melbourne 2020is a new digital compilation album I’ve compiled, collecting recordings made by Melbourne musicians over the recent months of COVID-19 lockdown.
Included is a new duo recording with myself and Nick Ashwood:
This was the last time I played music with another person (July 2020) in the same room at the time of writing. Nick was visiting Melbourne and we quickly teed up a jam, just as the second lockdown was rolling out. My suburb was in lockdown, but my studio was nearby in a non-lockdown postcode. We met there and played for a couple of hours. This was the first time we’d played together as a duo. Nick was staying in North Melbourne, and it was announced that evening that suburb would be locked down at midnight. Within a week or two the whole city was as well.
