Recent jams with the homie @masonspictorial for an as-yet-unnamed project where we both play @cooperengineering instruments with pedals… sounds a bit like walking thru an industrial zone late at night or something… atmospheric machine noise vibes 🏭 #noise #machinenoise #noisemachine #handmadeinstruments #diyinstruments #mrputin #atmosphericnoise #factorynoise #drone #fxpedals #pedalboard #noisemusic #cooperengineering #australianinstituteofnoise

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)
