The Sounds Unsound Presents #21
07/11/2018 @ 07/11/2018 - 07/11/2018Free
Number 21 in the resurrected series of improvised, experimental or just plain weird yet beautiful music nights. Still blending the acoustic with the electric, the subtle with the bombastic.
5.00pm Doors and Happy Hour(s)
A clarinetist, improviser and composer, born and based in Sydney. She has been an important young voice on the Sydney improvised music scene since 2007, playing with groups such as The Splinter Orchestra and Prophets, and collaborating with Australian improvisers including Jim Denley, Dale Gorfinkel, Monica Brooks and Peter Farrar. Laura has toured Australia and Europe with a range of projects including the trio Great Waitress, featuring Brooks on accordion and Berlin-based pianist Magda Mayas.
Act For Birds (Subespai/ Sebastian Sequoiah-Grayson)
Ambient noise created from the combination of Sebastian Sequoiah-Grayson‘s prepared guitars and Subespai‘s electro-acoustic manipulations. A duo in their second appearance together, Act for Birds plan to deliver emotional soundscapes both raw and considered. A performance for all types of birds, night owls, woodpeckers, and hummingbirds alike.
A best-kept secret of the Australian underground. A composer, improviser and collaborator who has shared stages with Matmos, Julia Holter, Forest Swords, Steve Gunn, OM, Deradoorian and many others. Tuttle dwells in a between world of ambient and folk genre that feels like a community all of its own. Holding a space that is tropical, abundant and generous, Andrew Tuttle makes outsider music that turns its listeners into insiders — beckoning a journey inwards which unfolds many heart-opening moments along the way.
The new project of Australian drummer/producer Nicholas Meredith. His sound-world, although wet through with electronic and digital elements, draws significantly from the natural world: monolithic structures, human biology, water. Working with themes of uncertainty and environmental change.
Founding member of Sydney groups Forenzics and Syntax Error, Matthew has an eccentric and unusual approach to the guitar, using multiple effects, delays and looping to build complex improvised sonic textures informed by noise, post-rock, industrial and soundscape music. Here he plays an optical theremin, open jack and contact mic to create subtle textured soundscape interludes between sets.
