Upcoming activities and appearances. Oct 15, 2017

It’s more than okay to say Yes, it’s only fair.
There is something important to be said.

Some upcoming appearances and activities.

‘Phenomena’ compilation album

I’ll be appearing on a download compilation from No Records called ‘Phenomena’.
It is due for release on the 2nd of November (I believe). Go here:

Sonic Systematics, Hobiennale – Saturday 4th of November 2017.

I’ll be performing a solo set as part of a series of performances programmed by Phillipa Stafford at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart for the Hobiennale festival throughout the greater Hobart area. This will be a site-specific performance of enhanced field recordings, drone and voice.

Real to Reel – Art+Film – Tuesday, 14th of November 2017.

I’ve contributed a short film/single channel video work to this series of screenings at Moonah Arts Centre, Moonah. Curated by Sean Kelly.

Friday Nights Live – Friday 24th of November 2017

I’ll be performing a solo set, also at Moonah Arts Centre, for their series of events known as Friday Nights Live, sharing the bill with Christopher Leon.
My set will feature voice, guitar, synth and a couple of home-made instruments including the ‘Twang’. It will likely be a electro-acoustic soundscape with droney melodic flourishes. There will be some of my music available at the venue between now and the gig.

The MONA FOMA program has been released:

Evil Goat – sixpointsixsixyears – Saturday 13th of January, 2018

My noisy rock duo Machines Of Indeterminate Origin has been a tad quiet on the live front of late. However, unless something else comes up in the meantime, our next gig will be as part of this mini-fest that is an adjunct to MONA FOMA.
Thanks for having us Evil Goat, we are in pretty amazing company there at the Moonah Arts Centre, Moonah…get along, it’s a free event.

Unconscious Collective – Hypnapod – 16th – 21st of January, 2018.

UNCO have been working on this project for a number of years and my part of it has been the sound design. It’s had a couple of iterations interstate, but this is the first time it’s been shown proper in Tasmania. Each version has had a unique flavour and this one will be no exception. We are excited to be bringing this to Hobart at the Brooke Street Pier during MONA FOMA. Check it out, it’s a free event.

Also, stay tuned for some details of other releases.

In related news, my awesome partner Sally Rees is wrapping up a long gestating PhD degree and will be presenting a ‘closing’ event of sorts at the Plimsoll Gallery below the School Of Creative Arts/Centre For The Arts on Hunter Street, Hobart. It’s from 5:30pm till 7:00pm on Friday October 27th. Go along and show your support. However, an opening/closing is not always the best way to experience work in a gallery and this work should be experienced properly, so I recommend getting along during the week leading up to it (Mon-Fri excluding Tues from 12-5pm), open also on the weekend of 28th/29th too. It’s a fantastic body of work!

Thanks for reading. Take care and look after yourselves and each other.
