Kinds of Lights 5

Sewn From Asters

Kinds of Light is a concert series for creative music at PS Art Space. Curated by composer and improvising musician Josten Myburgh, Kinds of Light celebrates ambitious experimentation, careful musicianship, and sounds that are relevant to this place and time. It is programmed across style and genre, excited by the love and rigour that goes into music that defies categories.

NIKA MO - Of Cloven Hoof in Honey
DALE GORFINKEL (Naarm) - Air Drums

For this concert, Nika Mo will present a rare live performance of her astounding Of Cloven Hoof in Honey, a queer retelling of the Brother’s Grimm fairytales. Foregrounded by Nika Mo's effortlessly virtuosic voice, this project's backing band is a cast of pop mavericks and avant-garde improvisers collaborating to make fantastical sound-worlds, vividly setting the scene for dark and intruiging storytelling.

Sharing the bill is Dale Gorfinkel, no doubt one of the most inventive sound-makers living in Australia. Based in Naarm/Melbourne, his creative practice is a process of continual discovery of new ways of making sound, and new ways of listening informed by what he creates: from modified vibraphone, automated sound-sculptures and masked theatre performances to producing and playing percussion with in East African band Chik Chika. At Kinds of Light 5, he’ll perform on his Air Drums: an instrument powered by pressurised air which creates phenomenal bass rumbles out of the droning of taut rubber skins on drums.

Doors and bar open at 7pm, with music starting from 7:30pm. Tickets are pay-what-you-can, with a suggested price of $25 or $15 depending on your means. There is a post-concert discussion at the end of the event for those who'd like to stick around and join in discussion about the music over a drink.

Accessibility: The venue is wheelchair accessible, with accessible bathrooms. There is ample seating available and the space is very spacious.

Kinds of Light is presented by Tone List and PS. Tone List and PS operate 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.
