NoizeMaschin!! #84 - Chip Tune June

A celebration of all things under-specced & retro, vintage computers, Beta and VHS, distressed & broken electronic toys and household gadgets repurposed for noise-making. If you have a few lines of code that can make a beep and you can spin it out for 10 minutes via pedals, or a fully fledged masterpiece for VIC20, we want to hear from you.

Of Broken Trees and Elephant Ivories

Pianist Gabriella Smart takes the audience on a journey inspired by the narratives of two pianos from colonial Australia: Percy Grainger’s childhood piano, and the first piano to be transported to Alice Springs, reputedly on the back of a camel from Oodnadatta. Leading composers Cat Hope and Erkki Veltheim have transformed narratives surrounding these pianos to create works that are inspirationally original and unique. Hope instills the piano with theremin like qualities, inspired by Grainger’s Free Music, while Veltheim morphs history with contemporary culture where morse code is played on colonial piano to spell out the world’s most retweeted tweet of January 2015, reflecting our universal obsession with trivia.

About Jason Kahn:
http://jasonkahn.net/

Jason Kahn is a musician, artist and writer. He was born 1960 in New York and grew up in Los Angeles. He re-located to Europe in 1990 and is currently based in Zürich.

As an electronic musician, vocalist, drummer and guitarist Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which he composes for specific groups.

Kahn has exhibited his installations in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites internationally. These works focus on the idea of space: the conceptual and physical juncture points, its production and dissolution, and our relation to it as a political, social and environmental medium.

Kahn's other activities include sound pieces for radio, film, dance and theater. He has also designed numerous CD, LP and cassette covers. As a writer, his work has appeared in books, magazines and as liner notes to many audio publications.

Performing regularly around the world, Kahn has given concerts throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and South Africa.

In 2011 Kahn started the Editions imprint to publish his own recordings and writings.

Plastic is everywhere: in the devices we use, in our clothes, and increasingly in our bodies in the form of micro-plastics. We are more and more made to accept and deal with its omnipresence in the world, even as we attempt to curb our use of it.

Come walk, play with, listen to and make music with plastic and experience some kind of intimacy with this unusual material. 

Arrive outside the State Library before 2.30pm for a quick pre-walk briefing. Participants of all levels of ability welcome. Make sure to bring drinking water.
