Expanding the invisible void with a silent glow, 'Hyper Transmission' is a sonic and visual performance by legendary Taiwanese sound art pioneer Fujui Wang. Through kinetic hypersonic speakers, tightly-controlled audio beams strafe the space, threading through audience ears like lasers refracting between mirrors, a phenomenology of spectacular perceptual exchange.
Artists Dylan Martorell and Nathan Gray have been making improvised electro-acoustic audio as Snawklor since 1996. Their unique sensibility constantly shifts it’s instrumentation while retaining a character based around a shimmering palette of metallic percussion, tones, accidents, interruptions and animal noises.
Taking inspiration from Tuvan and Mongolian overtone singing, Inuit throat singing, sound poetry, feminist, queer and trans praxis, insight meditation practice, industrial shamanism and more, Sage Pbbbt performs an ongoing exploration of extra-normal vocal techniques.
Maria Moles explores the electronic manipulation of rhythmic structures played on the drum set, focusing on blending both acoustic and electronic instruments and objects.
Kinetic interactions with collaborators, objects and site form the improvisational material of Melbourne-based percussionist Michael McNab. He is interested in human and non-human presence as impetuses for sound making, and in spatiality and anti-virtuosity (walking around and dropping things) as ways to shake up audience-performer relationships.
Josten Myburgh is a Perth-based musician, influenced (mostly) by early music, fluxus, footwork, hip-hop, Wandelweiser, free improvisation and folk music, and interested (broadly) in gentleness, silence, repetition, counterpoint, juxtaposition and nonsense.
Hammers Lake is a trio comprising Judith Hamann (cello) and Carolyn Connors (voice), who are joined by a different percussionist/drummer for each show. For this performance Hammers Lake will be joined by renowned Melbourne drummer Rama Parwata.
