TL Birthday, Gigs

Tone List has turned 1! Thanks to everyone who bought a CD, caught a gig, or played a show. So far we’ve released nine works from Perth and Australian artists, with the 10th out tomorrow (see Highgate Continental at a 6pm tomorrow). Big plans for the year to come.

Gigs tonight with orphans and ßß at the Flytrap, 7:30. It’s been a while since we’ve hit together, so I’m looking forward to it. Then plenty of stuff throughout July with Tchake, James Bradbury, and all the regulars.

Recording sessions coming up for Lee/Jacobs/O’Connor and ßß and almost definitely orphans, if all the moons align.

Checkout IN/EX too, it’s a year old now, but if you’ve never heard it it’ll be so, so fresh.

Music today and everyday

I’m playing tonight, down at the ol’ Swan Lounge. 6:30 start with Lee/Macpherson duo followed by eszetts and orphans. This will be a nice evening of creation.

Perth has welcomed Keith Tippet to the city and rehearsals are underway for the Mujician Mosaic, iMprov and WAYJO performance at the State Theatre Centre. I’m working with both the Mujician ensemble and iMprov which is proving very exciting and educational.

And here’s some music from Josten Myburgh’s ‘Breaking Waves’ ensemble. Though not obvious, my sound is somewhere in this interesting blend. Check it out:

 

 

 

New music.

Last month I worked with Perth composer James Bradbury on his piece inside in-ness never inside out. Here’s what James has to say about it:

In this work, the computer assess levels of activity on varying time scales. This information is used to create both localised gestures and to influence structure and form. In a sense, the computer seeks to find its place in the musical environment by both reacting and influencing the two live performers.

And here’s the track, recorded live at James’ Recital in the Callaway Music Auditorium, University of Western Australia.
