Superimpose: iMprov Workshop

January 27, 1:30pm-3:30pm.
Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
Free (RSVP essential)


Join us for a participatory workshop featuring the German-based duo Superimpose (Matthias Müller and Christian Marien) as guest directors. Bring your instrument and collaborate with Superimpose and a host of local improvisers on developing skills for creating music spontaneously together.

All ages, levels of experience and degrees of involvement in experimental music are welcome. This is a place to meet others who are enthusiastic about exploring and creating spontaneously with sound.

Attendance is free and open but please RSVP to if you intend to be there or to make any enquiries.

Co-presented by Tura New Music and Tone List as part of Tura New Music's iMprov program within Audible Edge. See for more details on the full program.



Superimpose (Germany) is ONE sound – Matthias Müller (trombone) and Christian Marien (drums) have been developing their collaborative research into sound since 2006 – incorporating concerts in Europe and the US, and an intensive rehearsal process that forms the basis of a clarity, depth and connectedness in their playing. Their improvisations are the result of two independent voices – acting, fusing, diverging and shifting, and cutting their own ways whilst moving in the same direction – this symbiosis redefining boundaries and roles, and creating one distinctive sound.

Tone List is a Perth-based label for exploratory music.

Tura New Music is a not for profit music organisation based in Perth, Western Australia. Tura is a producer as well as resource centre and advocate for New Music.
