Attractor (Perth Festival) ft. Senyawa

  • The State Theatre Centre of WA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Tickets $36: https://www.perthfestival.com.au/event/attractor

Surrender yourself to a trance-noise odyssey as Indonesia’s tour-de-force music duo Senyawa and Melbourne choreographic luminaries Lucy Guerin and Gideon Obarzanek join forces with two of Australia’s leading dance companies.

Senyawa reinterprets the Javanese tradition of entering trance through dance and music as a powerful, contemporary ritual. As the performance unfolds, their unusual fusion of hand-made electrified stringed instruments with operatic melodies and heavy metal vocals slowly builds to a euphoric pitch while the dancers are propelled into ecstatic physical abandonment. The result is a visceral, empathic experience for the audience – and you can take it even further.

Propan and Josten Myburgh at FAR Festival, Albany

As an extension to their annual festival of exploratory sound in Perth,Audible Edge 2018, Tone List are thrilled to bring the Norwegian vocal duo Propan to Albany for a concert of beautiful, drifting and otherworldly songs. Sounding like a mixture between Björk's complex electronic arrangements and the guttural shrieks of Maja Ratjke, their work is challenging and yet strangely inviting. Their first visit to Australia is a not-to-be missed opportunity to hear one of Norway's most exciting new duos.

Propan will be joined by leading young experimental artists Josten Myburgh from Perth presenting his own improvised work.

iMprov #15 - Sound of the Mountain

Tura New Music's iMprov series presents experimental and exploratory improvisation at bar Four5Nine once a month on a Monday night. iMprov is guest-curated this month by Perth-based saxophonist and composer Alana MacPherson!

Sound of the Mountain (Elizabeth Millar & Craig Pedersen) join us once more from Montreal after an extensive stay in Asia, playing regularly and working alongside mavericks like Toshimaru Nakamura in Japan. Their duo explodes the micro-soundworlds of clarinet & trumpet into something unimaginably intense and detailed.

https://soundcloud.com/sound-of-the-mountain

A new collision of vocal improvisation between Lana Rothnie & Priscilla Gardner opens sound worlds of haunting melodics and unexpected harmonies.

https://soundcloud.com/lanarothnie

Eduardo Cossio, James van de Ven, Dom Barrett & Dan O'Connor unite for double-guitar and double-brass antics of the least predictable variety.

#FEMINISM & #BLACKMETAL

__________

Sage Pbbbt's debut CD release explores an improvisation practice influenced by extreme metal as well as various different shamanic music traditions that have a much more fluid sense of rhythm. Within it she explores a music that resembles a waterfall or fast-flowing stream or busy freeway—a chaotic, overwhelming sound, but with a constant sense of flux and flow.

The release is available as a 2CD in a card gatefold, or as a limited deluxe edition of 5 inside a 3D-printed, laser-cut (and numbered) box, containing a bonus CD-R, zine, poster, uncharged sigil of unknown intent, and a bar of premium single-origin Chuao 80% dark chocolate.

This release was assisted by Tone List's commissioning project for women in experimental music, supported by Tura New Music. (http://www.tura.com.au/)

Sun Down Low

TINA HAVELOCK STEVENS
CAT HOPE

Sun Down Low is a 2 hour long drone duo for drum and bass that turns the listeners expectations of these instruments inside out. Usually linked together in a rhythm section of a band - here the bass and drums become durational soloists in an unusual, exciting and unexpected way - through long form structures, repetition, loops and long, warm drones that explore different textures and intersections. Now and then the two parts lock together, but only fleetingly. The work is at times intense, at other times undulating and punctured by the energy of drumming and the viscerality of bass tones.

High Tide 17 ≈ Sonnenmasse | Leon Ewing

https://www.facebook.com/events/142626176327085/

Sonnenmasse is an ongoing project by vocalist and bass soloist Leon Ewing. Drawing upon doom metal, drone and shoe-gaze, he composes his music according to the acoustic and aesthetic quality of the spaces he performs in. Working around the resonant frequencies, reverberations and standing waves of the built environment of the Shipstores, Ewing’s site-specific sonic experience will shift and heighten your awareness of time and place. A deeply sensory experience for an audience of one.
