Auraltered State #5
The performance space in association with dualpLOVER invites you to Auraltered State #5 the fifth in a series of eight free concerts to be conducted across 2010/11 focussing on the music of New South Wales as heard through the ears of Lucas Abela. These performances will cross a wide spectrum of music from the state, focused on presenting evenings of contrasting music’s from some of our more irreverent, innovative, unusual and original artists from now, then and the future. All shows will be held at the new Performance Space Clubhouse, with a limited capacity of 100 patrons so please come early. This series has been kindly supported by the NSW ministry of the arts.
Horse MacGyver (formerly as is now always a ///▲▲▲\\\) is a sound and video artist toying with breakdown and smoked out feedback. Slurring lines between multiple genres of music, none of his live shows have been entirely the same thing twice.Y
Robbie Avenaim and Lloyd Honeybrook are Fucked. In every sense of the word. The two have been playing together in various forms for half a decade, but with both exploring the sheer extremities of their respective instruments - Robbie with his mechanical kick-drum pedals and Lloyd with his feedback sax - this duo is undoubtedly the most fucked thing they've done. Sonically somewhere between Borbetomagus, Napalm Death demos and your unfavourite noisecore band, but so much more antagonistic. These guys take 1600 bpm bass drum blastbeats and hideously loud saxophony to exactly where you would expect it: pure fuckedness. Fresh off their Japan tour where they collaborated with the likes of Optron (Atsuhiro Ito) and Shoji Hano (High Rise), and shared stages with Corrupted, Lasse Marhaug, Otomo Yoshihide and other purveyors of brutality, the two are pushing themselves even harder to levels of devastation. First Sydney show!
Martin, formerly known as DJ Scalpel Chest is considered the 4th sexiest Asian man in Sydney. He was also runner-up in the Dr Hot competition of 1999. As a heart surgeon, an extraordinary musician and experimental sound artist, Martin is at the cutting edge of a new musical genre dubbed 'cardiologycore' (though rival medical teams have also dubbed the genre 'ambient post-heartbreak doom'). He also spent time hitting the skins for The Transplants, keeping the pulse of the band's melodic punk roots alive, in the same vein as Artery Agogo. Martin now divides his interest between twirling the needles in the suture room and twirling the decks.
