PERFORMANCE #5 / 5
Sunday 18 June 2017, 7:00pm – 11:00pm
Nasty, nasty men doing bad things to electronics from Cash Converters, Moonah.
More rock than was left in the rivulet wall, and as drenched in reverb as Hutchinson’s excavators.
Art Ensemble formed 2016, is a large-group ensemble that explores collective spontaneous music through improvisation and instruction-based compositions. The compositions focus on site specificity and performer/audience relationships to space.
The resulting music is, stark, fragile, succinct and is barely (in)audible that plays on the listener’s perception and challenges traditional methodologies of music making.
The lineup is always in flux. For this iteration, it will include performers, Julius Schwing, Alf Jackson and Alethea Coombe.
Matt Warren is a Hobart-based electronic media artist, musician, curator, radio presenter and writer.
His music practice has a basis in both composition and improvisation. He is interested in the results of chance combination and random actions, referencing processes and ideas of John Cage, William S. Burroughs, Brian Eno and at times utilises nonsensical or portmanteau texts. The works investigate memory, transcendence, liminal spaces and suspension of disbelief and Warren considers his practice as part of a greater context currently aligned to neo-psychedelia, digital abstraction and hauntology.
He records and performs live solo and with collaborative music projects and has performed as part of the Damo Suzuki Network and the Hobart Improv Collective. He also regularly produces sound works, installation and video as part of the Unconscious Collective.
He has undertaken sound-based residencies with Jean-Yves Thériault in Montreal, Canada and with Damo Suzuki in Köln, Germany and produced sounds works that have been presented in Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and the USA.
