It’s a bit dark…. but hurray UT and HB together! This was really cool for me cause UT played our first shows as “Holy Boner with Yuka Discobeans” until we gave it a new name and made it a different band, and subsequently HB became less experimental and more strict noisecore/noisegrind. And now here we are, exciting yeah?
Huge cheers to everyone who came to DISCO MULTIVERSE last week and made KOO*NEE feel welcome. It was heaps of fun and one of our most well-attended shows so far!
Had another excellent rehearsal in the Spatial Studio at Magnet the other night with the group. We’re playing an immersive multi-channel live score for the event using a variety of conventional and DIY instruments and effects. It’s all very technical and fancy and sounds bloody good! If you wanna check it out get a ticket ASAP because there aren’t many!
This instalment of MIUC features nine sonoversal shredders in three cacophonously kaleido-audic displays of uncontrived auricular conception, forging frequential realms of existence and fortuity far beyond the reach of more orthodox reverberant renderings.
We welcome kinetically-endowed electroshredder Kooni of Kyoto with some of the finest purveyors of shitcore brutality Melbourne currently has to offer, laying out the spontaneity-stained red carpet for some derangedly dense extreme noise terrificness.
Freya Shack-Arnott favours the Club with another serving of her sublime string-based sonics on a brief Melbournian junket, magnanimously introducing us to consummately gifted guzheng extemporiser Mindy Wong for some synergetic electroacoustic ecstasies.
And Muddy Lawrence, an entity the curator stumbled upon over half a decade ago via a free recycled cassette in a record store and adored immediately, which he has great pleasure in presenting for your post-punk-is-over-so-what-now anti-virtuosic convalescence.
• Kooni (Being Amazing), Yuka Mikayama (Being Fabulous), Ove-Naxx (Being Beats/Samples), Rod Cooper (Being Sounds), Nik Kennedy (Being Noise/Processing) & Brad Smith (Being Drums/A Maniac)
• Freya Schack-Arnott (Cello) & Mindy Wong (Guzheng)
• Muddy Lawrence aka Reece Prain (Electronics, Voice)

What/who is the benefit for?
Unscene Artists Inc. is an Australian non-for-profit organisation, established by all Australian artists that promotes inclusion and diversity in extreme, experimental, eclectic and other original alternative music forms.
Our goal is to obtain Entertainment Sponsor status to enable members to tour likeminded overseas artists in Australia – o/s bands who would otherwise be prevented by high immigration costs, unreasonble union requirements and commercial agent’s commissions and local bands that would be otherwise be denied the opportunity to tour and network with them.
Proceeds will go to immigration application fees and the purchase of backline for touring. Get your hands dirty, Get involved!
