Friday, October 5 at 7:30 PM – 11 PM
A showcase of Melbourne instrument builders - new, developing and established - performing with their creations in three duos:
Clinton Green & Ernie Althoff - perform their back-to-back prepared turntable work 'Blindfold test' - https://shamefilemusic.bandcamp.com/album/blindfold-test
Tina Douglas & Michelle Nguyen - Michelle builds reactive audio sculptures and sound-triggering slime pots. Tina uses conductive painting and objects to trigger sound - https://www.tinadouglas.net/sound-video-performance/. This is their first time playing together.
Jen Tait (Gwenhwyfar) & Zela Papageorgiou - Zela is a percussionist who has been mentored by Speak Percussion in instrument building and worked with a variety of unconventional objects. Jen (of Squirrel Pancake, Is There a Hotline? and many more) builds electronic thumb pianos and makes music with odd household items - https://squirrelpancake.bandcamp.com/album/mental-detective . This is a first-time duo as well.
There will also be an opportunity for informal discussion about the instruments used, approaches taken, etc.
