in-Stability: Ernie Althoff

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.

Ernie Althoff has been building experimental musical instruments for nearly four decades. He has been a key influence on my work with kinetic sound sculpture, both through Althoff’s own turntable-driven machines, and as a mentor and advisor. Althoff will perform in duet with my sound sculptures.

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.

Winter Railyard Event II – Monday 10 June 2019 (evening)

Winter Railyard Event is a site-specific exploration featuring performances that engage with place. The event occurs at a secret location, audience numbers are limited and bookings are essential.

I think it’s fair to say that last year’s event was memorable for all who attended.

This year’s event will take place on the evening of Monday 10th June (Queens Birthday public holiday) in the vicinity of Tottenham Station (details will be provided to attendees prior).

Featuring:

  • Jim Denley
  • Clinton Green
  • radio cegeste
  • Michael McNab

INTERSECTION4

Corner of Swanston and LaTrobe streets, Melbourne

 

The fourth roughly-annual GAIP event/happening of Intersection. Ren Walters ‘explains’ below:

 

Please join in for a wander around together for part or all and invite whomever may be interested. SOUNDING, sitting, STROLLING, conversing, TRAVERSING, processing, obsessing, STARTING, stopping, observing, draping, SKATING, voicing, running, CRAWLING, stalling, jaywalking, SKULKING, SILENCING, mumbling, bumbling, INTRODUCING, intersecting, WHISPERING, breathing, ARRIVING, LEAVING, fumbling, tumbling, huddling, falling, REVERSING, INTERSPERSING and so on . . .

 

To quote a past participant; “I came along, couldn’t see nothing so I went home”

And; during the performance I received a text from a co-performer “where is the music, where is the performance?”

 

The following is the original “score”;

INTERSECTION – (a point or line common to lines or surfaces that intersect.)

Participants continuously cross at the four traffic lights on each corner of the intersection, for one to two hours duration.

The dream is to be invitational through practicing/embodying openness and generosity toward the environment and fellow pedestrians. Taking the uncontrived opportunities that arise through this immanency.

This mode of being may be enhanced or facilitated by particular movements, gestures, appearances, sounds, props etc., when understood as ‘enabling strategies/techniques’ to generate momentum, to supplant self-consciousness, to stimulate a ‘performative frame’.

In circumnavigating this space, our attentive presence and movement will charge an energetic field in the vicinity.

 If for some reason you become diverted from this prescribed activity (by engaging in conversation, missing the green light because you were staring at the sky, taking a tourist to the nearest bus stop, etc.), this can be considered fortuitous. Then just return to your activity.
