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).
Here are some photos from the night.

Huge thanks to everyone who was there, and to the City Of Mandurah for their contribution to advertising. Photos courtesy of Sandy McNab and Calum Carty.
I got to the Pillbox Studio after midday and had lunch before I got stuck into it. The band who were in the studio previously weren’t courteous enough to tidy up after themselves, so I spent a lot of my time tidying up cables and such. Eventually I got everything where it needed to go.
I arranged all of my own gear and cables before placing microphones.
Then I was finally ready to go into the control room and check the signals.
The patch leads are very colourful.
Happy with day one.
Days two and three will be recording tracks and starting the mixdown.
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.
