The World Tree exhibition of paintings by Tim Parish

from The World Tree exhibition page on undergowth.org :

Protestors gather under the tree of life as bulldozers approach. Televisions vomit endless waterfalls of information. A disembodied totem of animal, vegetable and mineral world stares at you in profile. The city speaks in confusing angles where we lose perspective. The world tree is burning while man meditates under its shade.

"The World Tree" is an exhibition of new paintings by Melbourne artist Tim Parish, co-founder and art director of Undergrowth.org at Open Studio

The opening night will include music from Kafka and performance artist Si on Sunday the 15th of June at 7pm.

IMAGE RADIO 2008 - Eindhoven - New media in public space - Call for artists

C a l l f o r A r t i s t s - Exploring Your Invisible Paradise! 30-10 till 02-11-2008

DEADLINE EXTENDED - Submit your work until 9th of June 2008

Take this opportunity to participate in the 2nd edition of Image Radio – a young festival for new ideas in digital culture, taking place in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

The festival is also an experiment, critical reflection, and preview of how new media in public space impact our cultural, social and physical surroundings. The increase of display devices, data clouds, sensor networks, particularly in urban centers, provides a new medium. Public space becomes a playground in which dynamic and manipulative data influence our perception. Potential applications are shown in experimental installations. Theory, discussion and exchange on these topics are facilitated in the seminar program and symposium.

BLACK METAL - a documentary

Black Metal was originally a term that described the music of Venom, so it is only fitting that Cronos, the great forefather of this style, speaks his mind.

Frightening attitudes clash as the truth is sought. Determine what is real and what is mere fabrication with the help of Gorgoroth, Immortal, Darkthrone, Celtic Frost, Gloomy Grim, King Diamond, Dark Funeral, Enslaved, Mortiis, and myriad others who have shaped the music.

Location Mu-Meson Archives, Crn Parramatta Rd & Trafalgar St, Annandale

Time Doors 7.30 for 8pm start

Cost $10 with supper

JUSTICE YELDHAM : BIRTHDAYS LP Launch : 25th May : Toff In Town (Melbourne)

Fresh from North American tour and LOAD records showcase at SXSW Lucas Abela is launching his new JUSTICE YELDHAM LP; BIRTHDAYS. The record consists of two live sets by the maverick amplified-glass player recorded during his & Keg's recent tour of Europe.

Side A was captured in Marseille on the eve of Justice's 35th birthday while side B was recorded on Kegs birthday in Porto, and to top off the birthday cheer Keg also drew the cover illustration as a gift for Justice's Birthday. The record has been collaboratively released in an edition of 600 copies across the world by Anarchymoon Recordings (North America), Turgid Animal (Europe) & All Thumbs Press (Australia). Of which only 25 or so are in the country as All Thumbs copies practically sold out during the aforementioned tour and will only be available at the show.

His sets have been described as "a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe". By pressing his face and lips against the glass whist employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries, he turns disguarded household windows into crude musical instruments. Resulting in a wide variety of cacophonous noises that are strangely controlled and oddly musical.
