THIS MONTH
Machina aux Rock (drums & electronics post/kraut rock - Melbourne)
resi-quat (cassette tape collage - Brisbane)
Camilla Hannan (surround sound composition - Melbourne)

The improvised performances of Melbourne experimental musicians Nat Bates
(electronics) and Stephen Masterson (drums) come under the name "Machina aux
Rock". In simplistic terms, Stephen plays drums that trigger Nat's noise
gates, which in turn pass bursts of electric guitar and bass textures, the
overall sound being processed and shaped live by Nat. The
result is something akin to Post-rock Krautrock. "It's 'rock' Jim, but not
as we know it." Nat is a co-director and founder of Liquid Architecture, the
only National Sound Art Festival, and is currently undertaking a Masters
degree focussing specifically upon the use of appropriation, quotation and
assimilation in contemporary sonic art.

resi-quat (aka Adam Park) performs sound collage using a number of cassette
players mixed together each playing tapes of various cutups, sound effects
and computer and/or totally analogue produced loops. Thus returning music to
its true meaningful state, as noise.

Camilla Hannan is a Melbourne based sound artist working primarily in
gallery installation and surround sound composition. She is primarily
interested in the psychological sonic narrative and the physicality of sound
in space. Her most recent solo exhibition was Hedgeburner, a surround sound
installation involving 30 metres of synthetic grass at first site Gallery
Melbourne in July 2002.
