DEATH BY CONES is a quadraphonic/surround-sound noise bath with rotating line-ups which I’ve done a few times over the last few years in a few different venues. Speakers face in, audience goes in the middle for maximum vibrations! Massive thanks to Annalee Koernig and Ari Sharp for cooking this one up!

WANKOSLOP @ MIUC 26/04/2017

To wring out the final, spluttering bursts of warmth in Melbtown’s April summer and ease us into the sonic bleakness of winter 2017, MIUC hosts some fittingly abstracted and chaotic atonal improv this week. Intrinsic Light are a long-standing, yet occasional collaboration of two trailblazers of the no-core, break-bruit, anti-tonic, darklight Melbourne scene, fusing the grim and the hopeful in a maelstrom of riffblasting transcendence. The similarly inspired duo of Yuka Mikayama and Nik Kennedy deliver intense blasts of post-grind-noise-improv madness. And, kicking things off, the ultra-digital and the ultra-analogue combination of intrepid A/V artist Vijay Thillaimuthu with MIUC curatorial alumni, theremin-core protégé, Kerrie Farnsworth.

• Intrinsic Light feat. A Demon Sheen (Tantric Riffage, Blackened Throat) & Zen Tait (Pranic Percussions, Benevolent Blast)

• Wankoslop feat. Nik Kennedy (Electro-Oral Noise) & Yuka Mikayama (Voice)

• Xenosine aka Vijay Thillaimuthu (Synths, Electronics) & Phantom Graveller aka Kerrie Farnsworth (Theremin, Sax, Electronics)

COLOSTOMY BONER? @ MIUC 17/01/2017

miuc-logo01

This week at MIUC we embrace bombastic brutality for the midpoint of our month-long birthday festivities, featuring four fierce frequential factions fixedly fascinated with tinnital fuel efficiency.

Two of the most awe-inspiringly aethyreal duos to ever bedeck the Bar Open stage on a Tuesday, namely organ-ic bombinators Lisa MacKinney & Roman Tucker and euphoric free jazzinators Maria Moles & Adam Halliwell, combine their impeccable processes at summoning sonic splendours.

Two of the most hypervariegatedly spontaneous shredders to arise from the pullulating pits of Hellbourne, namely amazing everythingist James Rushford and everythingcore percussive provocateur Sean Baxter, abstractedly discoursing on the intersectional potentialities of Xenakis, Les Légions Noire and Mark Hamill reading Trump tweets as The Joker.

And two of the most vociferously visceral cacophonous wrecking crews in town, namely Colostomy Baguette? and Holy Boner, unite to usher in an unholy new age of textural terror, handmade horrors, augmentative atrocities and cloyingly crasscore combinatorial bandnames.

– Lisa MacKinney (Organ), Roman Tucker (Organ), Maria Moles (Drums) & Adam Halliwell (Guitar, Electronics)

– James Rushford (Strings) & Sean Baxter (Skins, Things)

– Colostomy Boner? feat. John Stevens (Voice, Electronics), Wayne Donovan (Voice), Nik Kennedy (Handmade Noisebass, Voice), Brad Smith (Drums) & Rod Cooper (Handmade Shreddery, Voice)
