pianos, minimal, IN/EX: recorded live at Noizemaschin!! in the Perth Artifactory
Thursday the 27th of October saw the return of Noizemaschin!! to Mandurah for the fourth time. Along with being the MC for the evening I performed a piece exploring weather data in a musical context (unfortunately I forgot to press record until after my set).
This will be the fourth Noizemaschin!! event that I have brought to Mandurah. This time I will be performing as myself instead of tilde~ since that project is taking off on its own trajectory. I have not started on the piece that I will be performing for NM Mandurah but I have some ideas.
I want to learn how to use research data in Max to create or manipulate music. With this I may utilise the wireless controller apps on iPad as the user interface. It may turn out to be quite different to the ambient stuff that I have been performing at previous NM gigs, but hopefully it will be just as (if not more) interesting.
I am also pleased to have the young local artist Navana on the set-list for the show. She is well known around Mandurah for being a proactive singer and songwriter with an acoustic guitar. I’m hoping that for Noizemaschin!! she can broaden the already fairly wide repertoire of art that she can create.
After many months of planning and application writing, Noizemaschin!! Mandurah finally happened. I have to give a huge thanks to John Lambrecht at RDA Peel, Kim Jameson and the City of Mandurah, Karen Lyons and Rhys Williams from Make Place, and all the performers. Also those who helped in other ways, namely Skot McDonald an Meg Travers.
It’s been a grueling process trying to get things happening in the scarce downtime I’ve had, but I have finally brought a franchise of Noizemaschin!! down to Mandurah. This event will feature really great artists who graciously will be coming all the way down from Perth to perform and make noise at Make Place, Mandurah’s co-working space. It’s happening all thanks to the Creative Mandurah Grants Program from the City of Mandurah and RDA Peel.
