Adam Gołębiewski is an experimental musician, composer and musicologist who uses drums and self-made objects to explore the basic characteristics of sound: volume, timbre, register and time, as well as their relationship to the performer’s body. He has performed and recorded with many artists, such as Yoko Ono, Thurston Moore, Kevin Drumm, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, John Edwards, Sharif Sehnaoui, Mazen Kerbaj, Pierre Jodlowski among many others.
Eva Birch is a poet living in Melbourne on Woiwurrung country. She has published her work in Cordite Poetry Review, Sick Leave, and Un. Magazine, among others, and is the author of three chapbooks: Megalodon (SoD press, 2019), We Eat Out Together: My Heart Cam (WEOT collective, 2020), and Sun’s Window (Eva Birch and Kieren Seymour, 2021). She also runs the Melbourne School of Literature (MSL). J (picnic, etc.) is a dj, musician and founder of the record label and publishing platform daisart. They are currently recording their first EP.
Alexandra Spence reimagines the intricate relationships between the listener, the object, and the surrounding environment as a kind of communion or conversation. Favouring field recordings, analog technologies and object interventions, she holds the belief that electricity might actually be magic.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung as the Traditional Owners and sovereign custodians of the Country on which we practice. We extend our respects to their Elders past and present, and to all First Peoples.
This concert is presented as part of Liquid Architecture's Ritual Community Music concert series, in partnership with Abbotsford Convent. We thank the Victorian Government and City of Yarra for support through the On the Road Program.
