Tone List Presents: Josten Myburgh & Daisy Sanders, Kelsey Diamond & Soph Kruse, Mute Care Unit
Tone List presents is our new ad-hoc program of experimental music concerts. We're opening a space to be more responsive to artist's whims, exciting new developments from emerging artists, and the presence of national and international visitors. The first of these is a program of experimental performances that play with stillness or quiet in brave ways.
The occasion here is a homecoming show for the duo of contemporary dancer Daisy Sanders and alto saxophonist Josten Myburgh. Having explored rest-as-performance through dance and music together for over five years, the duo recently completed a tour of Aotearoa, refining their practice to be more and more sensitive to the bristling intensity of silence and stillness. Marked by sudden changes in emotive state and intensity and a palpable trust, its a powerful, patient (and occasionally very playful) project.
Kelsey Diamond and Soph Kruse have been collaborating together as musicians, interdisciplinary artists, hosts of experimental dinner parties, and considered event curators for many years. This new duo project explores a subtle, droning ambient soundworld using modular synthesis, found objects, violin and other materials in striking and unusual assemblages.
The first live performance of Dylan Terranova's project Mute Care Unit explores amplification of tiny acoustic sounds, sparse twitches of analogue synthesis and electroacoustic feedback, and silence. Better known for his stark and brutal electro-acoustic works and punishing harsh noise in other projects, Mute Care Unit sends the extremity in the other direction towards the threshold of audibility.
Doors at 7:30pm, with music starting shortly after (around 7:45pm).
Tone List events work on a pay-what-you-can principle: you are welcome to pay any amount. We usually suggest $25 or $15.
This gig is all ages. Non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.
Accessibility: The Maylands Yacht Club is a wheelchair accessible, via a ramp at the exterior of the space, and a wheelchair lift on the interior. An accessible all-gender bathroom is located in the hallway on the ground level. ACROD parking is available outside the space. The music will often be very quiet, and may also have moments of sudden loud volume.
Tone List is a Boorloo-based exploratory music label, operating on the lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation. We pay our respects to custodians and elders of this boodja past, present and future.
