Massive line up of outatowner-collaborations and a solo:
* Kim Kerze (melb) – tabletop banjo/objects
Kim Kerze is a polymath who has been known to work with drawing, painting, folk music traditions, poetic language and is currently preoccupied with the banjo. Using metal, stones, ebows, butterfly clips goblets, magnets, the banjo is reformulated as a generator of contingent textual patterns in flux and mutation.
* Wardenburger (bris) – ft. Henry Mills, Alex Cuffe, Adam Park, Dylan Jefferies, Jule Small, Nicola Morton, Skye McNicol, Rohan Bridge
* Cycle~ 440 (perth) – semi-improvisational electro-acoustic duo of Sam Gillies and Kevin Penkin that fuses acoustic piano with extensive laptop sampling and processing to create alternating soundscapes of extreme fragility and overwhelming density
* TÃ© (berlin via perth/syd) – the improvising electroacoustic duo of Kynan Tan (computer) and Andrew Brooks (saxophone). The group formed in 2011 while both Australians were undertaking research periods in Berlin and has since developed into an expression of electroacoustic and interactive language. TÃ© explores the grey area of sound between organic and electronic, the language of communication that has been developed allows both parties to take turns in the creation of noisy, expressive or dense gestures. Here, the computer takes on multiple roles as a synthesiser, manipulator and sampler through grid routing of personalised Max/MSP patches, while the saxophone is pressed into performing textural, harmonic and abrasive sounds, filling the spectrum and creating obvious links to the synthetic glitches, whirs and noises of the computer synthesis.
