PROTEM at SAC

Pro Tempore logo

Protem is an exciting new performance and art project presented by Salamanca Arts Centre.


Protem explores experimental and avant-garde sound, movement and art in temporary space. In a pentamerous series of curated events, Protem will bring innovative and luminary artists to the attention of an intrepid audience, creating and sharing a transformative experience through music, poetry, dance and art. Arguably ambitious, Protem is for an audience with open ears and minds, and probably long attention spans. If you’ve made it this far into reading this blurb, I’d say Protem is definitely for you. For a tacitly tectonic evening, join us as we come together to celebrate the effervescent community of musicians, performers and artists that call lutruwita / Tasmania home. Don’t forget to bring your good concentration hat.

LUCIEN SIMON & KOKO FLOW
Lucien Simon, the enigmatic front man of seminal 90s Tasmanian band DUST is back. Dust was a bands “band” and because so many bands on the mainland loved Dust they were able to tour regularly. Dust played with legendary acts such as Roland S Howard and these Immortal Souls, Wild Pumpkins at Midnight and Lunacide; Indie darlings Augie March, Melbourne sweethearts The Dead Salesmen, Droplet and Paradise Motels and JJJ darlings Sidewinder, Drop City and the Daisy Grinders… Oh, and not to mention the then massive Tea Party.  At their heyday Dust was headlining packed crowds in Sydney and Melbourne attracting A&R reps from Major Labels who had been taken to the gig by members of bands signed to these majors who were convinced that Dust were destined for great things.

A lone scratching of their EP ‘Detroit Fucking Blues’ can be downloaded here:

However no definitive recording exists of this near mythological beast and this, after all these years, is Lucien’s mission, to create a recording that captures the heart-breaking beauty and the self-destructive implosion that was, is and always will be DUST.

This Friday Lucien will be joined by fellow provocateur Koko Flow on vocals, percussion and harmonium  and long time collaborator Cameron Healy on bass.
