Big thanks to Father Midnight and Paul Kidney for recently playing SPASMOSLOP and all sorts of other noisemusic flavours (including plenty of locals!) on their radio shows on PBS 106.7FM in the early hours of the morning. Paul even plays SUPER FUN HAPPY SLIDE and other grindcore stuffs too sometimes, what a legend!
You can stream past shows on their sites, chockers with interesting sounds… check ’em out!!
INTERSTELLAR OVERDRIVE with Father Midnight
EAR OF THE BEHEARER with Paul Kidney
After touring Australia twice with SETE STAR SEPT, Tokyo noise/grind maniac Ryosuke Kiyasu returns for a solo tour to fuck up snare drums, sticks, mics and your wretched ears!!
March 31st @ The Tote Upstairs with Asbestosisis, Umbilical Tentacle & more
April 1st @ Spatial Studio, Magnet Studios with Octave Pussy, Ari Sharp & more
PLANET/ARIUM is a regular gathering of sound-lovers/noise-makers/improvisers in the SPATIAL Studio at Magnet Studios – www.magnetmelbourne.com.au
Perform / Collaborate / Listen
A communal vibe where people can come and share their sounds, perform, jam & collaborate, organise a sonic happening or experiment, or just listen and enjoy the amazing acoustics of SPATIAL.
Each installment will have a basic theme or structure so it’s not a complete mess (unless that’s the theme).
A communal exchange, not a curated event. Get involved!
If you’ve got an idea, chuck it around, make it happen! Use the Facebook event page or the page on letsnoise.com to discuss stuff, or talk about it on the night.
First voyage: Monday 19th Dec
Spatial Studio, Magnet Studios
11 Roosevelt St. North Coburg
We’ll keep it simple for the first one:
6:30-7:30 Set-up/sound check/show & tell
7:30 “Open PA” and/or jamming
After that: More Open PA and/or jamming until everyone’s had enough or we run out of time
There’s a good PA but you might want to bring an amp if you have one. We also have a couple of spare amps that people can use.
IMPORTANT: BRING LEADS!!! Whatever “utility” stuff you need to connect your stuff to other stuff. People often forget this!
There will also be a $-donation box-$
Please contribute $5-$10 or whatever you can to help with Magnet’s ongoing explorations! For your input you get access to one of the best-sounding rooms around, a PA or amp to plug your stuff into, a recording of the session (uploaded later), and of course that special warm feeling that you’re helping a good cause. Chur.
