2006: ARCHIVAL TWITCH FOOTAGE
Tuesday May 13th 2014, 7:04 am
Filed under: News

In 2003 I wrote a piece entitled Twitch for 5 of my friends, which briefly became an ensemble of the same name. The group went on to perform some very special concerts, including the Melbourne Festival and Gaudeamus Music Week, but none quite topped our very last one in 2006 at South Melbourne Town Hall, in which each member of the group wrote a piece for everyone else. Archival footage has surfaced, and has to be seen to be believed.

APR 23RD: SYNERGY PERCUSSION PREMIERE BEAUTY WILL BE AMNESIAC OR WILL NOT BE AT ALL
Thursday March 06th 2014, 8:05 pm
Filed under: News

sixxen_beauty

April 23rd is the premiere of a new 60 minute work for Synergy Percussion – they are turning 40 this year and I’m honored to have been asked to write this work for them as part of the celebrations.

Using the same instrumentation as Xenakis’ 2nd percussion sextet Pleiades, the players surround the audience, except I’ve added a 6-channel electronics part to be diffused from a speaker between each player. The electronics are derived and edited from electro-acoustic improvisations with Jérôme Noetinger, and I will be there diffusing the electronics live.

The title of the piece comes from an essay from Sylvère Lotringer (used by permission), entitled The Dance Of Signs, originally published in the Semiotext(e) anthology Hatred of Capitalism.

The concert will take place at Carriageworks in Sydney, April 23rd, 2014. On the preceding night April 22nd, the group will perform the Xenakis.

Tickets can be purchased HERE

Please do not miss this special event if you are able to make it to Sydney, or if you are already there!
