Experimental Music: Audio Explorations in Australia (book)

Experimental Music: Audio Explorations in Australia is written by artists, producers and participants in alternative music-making, and including a companion CD, Experimental Music explores the development of forms, ideas and scenes in Australia from the 1970s to the present. It brings together a wide range of musical experimentation, from post-punk, noise, appropriation, electronic dance and listening music, to free improv, computer process music, experimental radio, instrument building and audiovisual fusions -- practices that have formed an integral part of Australian creative culture. Experimental Music illustrates how these forms have influenced each other to create a fertile and diverse culture, and highlights why it is vital to question, experiment and break the rules.

A SHIMMY SHAKIN' NIGHT OF LIVE ELECTRO/DANCE-POP WITH SUPER MASSIVE & YEN

A SHIMMY SHAKIN' NIGHT OF LIVE ELECTRO/DANCE-POP WITH SUPER MASSIVE & YEN

Award winning Sydney dance/rock band Super Massive team with fellow electro-funksters Yen for a very special night of electro/dance-pop at the Excelsior Hotel Surry Hills on Saturday 7th March. Newcomers Life Bitter Soul support.

The night showcases three of Sydney's best up and coming electronic/dance rock bands. With all bands on the bill sharing a love of deep rhythm, shimmering synths, poetic pop, not to mention lights and lasers, it's set to be a spectacular, shimmy-shakin' night, if not an outright dancing frenzy, if both Super Massive and Yen's previous shows are anything to go by.

The show is at the Excelsior Hotel, 64 Foveaux St, Surry Hills. The night starts at 8pm. Tickets are $10- at the door.

Greg Jenkins - composer and performer

greg jenkins - composer and performer

greg jenkins composes directly with the inherent musicality of sounds, making harmony, melody and rhythm subservient to sonic texture and spatiality. He will often extrapolate sonic minutiae into whole compositions for example by "zooming in" on a tiny fragment of recorded voice then using this as the basis of a droning musical weft.

greg also likes to hit things; things such as suspended arrays of inverted flower pots; things such as beer kegs; and things such as midi percussion controllers which allow him to subversively remap non-percussive sound objects to percussive performance gestures. He frequently makes use of "micro-gestures" - subtle physical manipulations of computer hardware which control software synthesis engines allowing him to perform directly on the software in real time. greg is also known as "cactusman" due to his penchant for using a cactus as an amplified acoustic instrument.

Uber Lingua @ Abercrombie Hotel (Sydney)

Sunday arvo-evenings at the Abercrombie Hotel

LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 19

As of Sunday December 19th, Uber Lingua is back with a weekly thing at the Abercrombie Hotel in Ultimo... arvos from 4pm in the Beer Garden thru summer, nice n close to our core mob...

and this time it's different... two house bands are melding with the crew of DJs to form a Sound System of Systems... Does that make sense? Well yes it does... coz the acts are the funked latin Dub-Hop crew SOCIAL PROGRESSION SYSTEM and Trevor Brown's electronics meets skankin' brass and strings ensemble the GYPSY DUB SOUND SYSTEM...

Both acts have impro woven within their genetic makeup and week by week they'll loosely form alongside the selectors and provide continuous Jazz-esque spontaneity across multi-hour sonic brackets... Wild card MCs, percussionists, instrumentalists and even whole other acts will be brought into this equation to add to each week's uniqueness... People like Black Symbol, Wire MC, Wei Zen Ho and Morganics... just to name a few.

Joining Mashy P, Sheerien and interstate interloper bP as a resident DJ is another leading figure of trans-lingual musical happenings in Sydney, Stu Buchanan... presenter of the legendary Fat Planet Radio show on FBi.

Alongside these are a league of culturally active DJs who will be rotated thru the place like there's no tomorrow. Individuals such as Prince V, Ollo DJs, James Locksmith, Spex, Man About Town, sakamoiz, Hezekiah and the like...

There'll be food to be had with once again a rotated list of international food caterers booked for the event so that each week a different culinary delight awaits... with the occasional Roo & veggies BBQ (when bP's in town)...

It all starts on Sunday December 19th with all residents bar Sheerien (who's overseas) playing... Both house bands will be in affect with Social Progression System appearing in their more cut back form SPS Crew.

It's free to get in before 7pm and $5 after that so mosey on down and join in on the opening night...
