Refraction Sound night at the UTS studio. Bon Marche Studio, 755 Harris St, Ultimo, Sydney. Curated by Emily McDaniel.
7pm, 2nd September 2009
So far it’s me on horns and loops and Yavuz Uydu – on Turkish Bendir & Oud and Mark Francombe on guitar live from Oslo paying in pre set keys based on previous improvisations. The boundaries it imposes are quite severe but there are still so many possibilities. Simple and minimal is just so nice !
Anyway we are on at 20.00 and you really have to be at the venue to get all three performances together. it also features :
Cleptoclectics is Tom Smith – channelling sonic detritus, playing various instruments, Tom Smith uses granular synthesis to create dense, idiosyncratic music. Warm textures, a distinctive tonal range, and staggered rhythms develop into a subtle form of reverie.
Morgan McKellar began writing music under the name Morning Stalker in 2005 as a home-recording project. Using heavily-effected instrumentation and crude recording methods to create lo-fi soundscapes of layered guitar loops, synth drones and fractured vocals. Since then Morning Stalker has become three, recruiting fellow Underlapper members Marc Chomicki (drums) and Matt Furnell (samplers) for live performances based around improvisation, texture, and progression.
Live Internet improvisation session featuring Roger Mills – trumpet, Yavuz Uydu – Turkish Bendir and ex Cranes guitarist Mark Francombe performing live from Oslo. The performance will integrate live streamed guitar textures, trumpet and semi determined tonalities and structure. Roger Mills is currently an HDR student at UTS whose practice focuses on networked collaborations, Internet performance and experimental radio.
Currently completing a Master’s degree in Audio Production at UTS, Genevieve has recently returned from a year abroad in San Francisco. Genevieve offers an intriguing sound with inflections of jazz and alt-folk. By incorporating experimental looping techniques into her performances she is able to achieve a full band sound as a solo artist.
