High Reflections presents:
Dolphins into the Future
is the Antwerp-based, Cetacean Nation Communications and Taped Sounds ambassador, Lieven Martens. Forming his music through a process of â€˜automatic writing instigated by dialogues with the cetacean worldâ€™, Martensâ€™ warbly and effervescent sonic ecosystems abound with the attuned aquatic energies and tranquillity of liquid percussion, echolocative synth gurgle, Polynesian cantata and tape-collage swirl.
is The Skatersâ€™ and Pacific City Visionâ€™s Spencer Clark. His ornate, hallucinatory environments are enacted through a Xerox mirage of celestial horse gallop, mizmar-like horn melismas and avian vocal Interpretation. His live performances have been likened to a mix of temple inauguration and 50â€²s Ethnic Folkways bootleg, and his myriad of recorded artefacts surf from devotional pyramid drone and celestial bamboo ritual to the tropical romance audio novel of his most recent vision, â€˜Make Mine, Macawâ€™.
is an artist, musician, curator, researcher, tutor, producer and writer. He has performed extensively in Australia and overseas, both solo and in various groups, and has just released Disposition on his own label Avantwhatever. His solo performances of visceral improvisation represent a conscious and thorough consideration of the laptop as instrument, focus on the relationship between the musician and his equipment as it plays out in any given space and ask the audience to chart their own path as the music constantly emerges from and disappears into a mess of signals, actions and noise. http://www.avantwhatever.com/
is the recording name of Australian musician Paul Gough. Pimmon has been perfecting his unique mixture of drone- and glitch-based abstract digital soundscapes, which he creates using a variety of sound sources that he manipulates on his computer.
