Soundscapes is a monthly music night showcasing acts somewhere in the alternative / experimental / sound art / other / uncategorised zones. Our featured acts for September:
- EMILY FISHPOOL with visuals by JESS WADE
- S AND M ELECTRO ACOUSTIC ENSEMBLE
- SHOEB AHMAD.
EMILY FISHPOOL and JESS WADE
Emily Fishpool is a Yuin person residing in Ngambri/Ngunawal country. She experiments mainly in creating pictures / telling stories through sound. Key to the work is the attempt to map the vast expanses of learning and forming cultural identity through place — and distance from place.
Jess Wade is a media artist who moves between photography, film, and experimental video work. Her experimental video work is a cathartic process that manifests as rhythmic, colour-saturated montages that explore landscapes that linger between dream and memory.
S AND M ELECTRO ACOUSTIC ENSEMBLE
Simon and Matt have been playing together in various contexts for more than 10 years, and will be performing their own special blend of electro-acoustic improvisation and composition.
Simon Milman — electronic drums
Matt Lustri — electric guitar.
SHOEB AHMAD offers a rich and extensive background in Australian music, creating idiosyncratic music over the last decade, using guitar, keyboards, voice, and electronics. Shoeb works as singer/composer and improviser and has performed throughout Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the U.K., and the SE Asian region as a solo artist and with groups such as Sensaround, Spartak, Tangents, and the Australian Art Orchestra. Shoeb has released a diverse range of original music while also working on sound design for dance/theatre; installation pieces; and contemporary chamber composition, inspired by 20th-century avant-classical works, Indian ragas, and minimalist electronic music.
