LMC's 16th Annual Festival of Experimental Music
"International in its sweep, uncompromising in its substance" - Time Out
Two dozen performers from around the world are given free reign to
redefine music. Over three days they coax incredible sounds from all
manner of instrument, in every conceivable manner. Performers include
the elder statesman of Japanese sound-art Yasunao Tone; mesmeric
minimalist legend Charlemagne Palestine;
and Norbert Möslang, enigmatic torturer of household electrical goods.
Group improvisations, drawing on diverse talents thrown in at the deep
end of spontaneity, feature Tony Buck, superlative drummer of
Australia's best export, The Necks; brilliant Belgian string virtuoso
Julia Eckhardt; and sensational American trumpeter Peter Evans.
And to surprise ourselves, some players at the very edge of audio
arts: Taku Sugimoto, whose guitar playing is so restrained as to
stretch the laws of time; Bob Levene, who uses turntables as audio
sculpture; and Helena Gough, who reveals the laptop as a landscape
teeming with twittering life.
Take an example from Eve – and Experiment.
