Third edition of the Australian Open series, the conjoined concert series by Sound in Motion/Oorstof and KRAAK exploring the vivid Australian underground. Whereas last edition highlighted the garage and noise scenes, this edition will be bringing over the current wave of overtone and minimalist compositions, turning those holy traditions upside down.
Adam Cadell is violinist en composer who is specialized in dissident fiddle music. He explores the boundaries of an instrument once forced in a romantic outfit and sound by the classical masters. He blends folk, minimalist and outsider traditions of violin music into one research project for which he composes new pieces and reinterprets traditions. The fringes of the violin are his playing field, where Henry Flynt, Laura Cannell and Katie Hernandez meet.
Kraig Grady is a minimalist composer, reinventing exotica by creating an imaginary island for which his music is the ethnological documentation. To imagine a completely unique world called Anaphoria, he uses microtonal organs and marimbas improvising his way into a beautiful realm with softly resonating and floating overtones.
Tim Catlin is Melbourne based extended guitar player, composer and instrument designer. With the Vibrissa — made out of resonating metal bars — he creates high frequencies overtone pieces. As if Lou Reed’s metal machine music is disembracing the holy church of spectral music. He collaborated with many roaring legends like Otomo Yoshihide, Phill Niblock and Mike Cooper.
