Barnaby Oliver and Clinton Green use aluminium bowls and strings to create a combination of shifting resonances, coalescing into other-worldly music that at first appears static, yet constantly shifts and re-grounds itself.
Spring features Tim Catlin and Rod Cooper playing their own newly-invented instruments – Vibrissa and Steel Keys.
I’ll be playing my first gig for nearly 12 months, and first solo performance since 2019, on Saturday 26 February 2022. From 7pm at Sunshine Art Spaces, 2 City Place, Sunshine. This is part of Mito Elias’ Nefelibata exhibition. Admission is free, also performing are Jonathan Sinatra and Monty.
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!
This work features some new tools I’ve been playing with of late, including improvisatory use of cassettes, walkmans, 4-track and video. The stream begins 8pm AEDT, and will be online for canned viewing afterwards.
