tilde~ album release on Tone List

‘Composed with Max/MSP and Garrahand percussion instruments, Æsthēsis is a foray into glitch-and-noise-based electro-acoustic ambience. Tilde~’s compositional approach forgoes lush, synth-heavy soundscapes and opts instead for close-up electronic crackles and distant metallic arpeggios. Contemplative melodies peeking through the white noise.’

Studio – Day One

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.

Æsthēsɪs – tilde~

Engage all of your senses in a multi-disciplinary performance. Mixed live and set against the beautiful visuals of nature, experience the musical ambience that can be created by electroacoustic instruments and a laptop.

A conceptual collection of six pieces of ambient music set to beautiful visuals, in order to create an experience stimulating multiple senses. The tracks are created using laptop and the input from electroacoustic instruments. Due to the nature of the random number generators used in the processing in each patch, no two performances will be the same.

The layered works of the visualist Lillevan have been extremely influential to the concept of the imagery of Æsthēsɪs. Similarly to his work, there are a lot of juxtapositions between the natural and digital worlds present in both the music and visuals.

Three Rivers brewery will be offering a unique and limited edition beer on the night.

Come and experience this performance with all of your senses.

WHEN:     Saturday, 21 May 7:30pm – 9:30pm

WHERE:  Make Place, 17/38 Mandurah Terrace

Article in The Mandurah Mail

The Mandurah Mail wrote an article on the workshops that Rhys hosted in April, and the upcoming multi-disciplinary performance in May. These are all a part of Mandurah’s Stretch Art Festival, and an effort to broaden the spectrum of art in the Peel Region.
