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.

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!!
Massive cheers to everyone local and interstate who has helped get this tour together! Great line-ups, I wish I could be there for the interstate gigs!
Seeing Kiyasu play solo was a highlight of my Japan trip last year for sure. He’s one of the most dedicated grind/noisemakers I’ve ever met, and this tour is entirely self-funded, so go give him the support he deserves!
