I had a great time this Tuesday at the Make it up club in fitzroy, Michael and i used our sounds from Menindee and the fed bells we still have mixed with live looping, harmonica and nylon guitar for the performance.
The blurb below describes it all with typical Lloyd Honeybrook gusto.
“This edition of MIUC is another delectably variegated evening awash with subtleties of sonic shading and tonal tints, blended together by three duos of textural chisellers into a vibrant auditory rainbow arcing through ears and brains. Ryan Granger & Michael O’Dwyer fuse the pure tones of Melbourne’s Federation Handbells with relocated sounds from the plains of country NSW via both digital and analog means, tinting the air with ecstatic post-locational ambience. Ben Kolaitis introduces his sculptural electroacoustic assemblages to Jon Smeathers’ metaphysical guitar blasts with the intention of collectively transcending sonic abstraction and evoking afferent smiles with sounds. And string caressers Tim Panaretos & Aaron Wallace make it up together for the first time on the mainland, exploring the complex harmonic properties of the vibrating string for the benefit of your auditory cortex.”
