Tone List presents

Tone List presents the third concert in our ad-hoc series for experimental music, upstairs at PS in Walyalup/Fremantle.

The collective MG create work reflecting a shared interest in world building, alternative cosmology, experimental lorecraft, and situated transgression. They have integrated video, musical improvisation, drag performance, noise, light, wet materials, spoken word and written word, and embodiment practices.

Guylaine Cosseron is an animalistic singer exploring a 'total voice' where all components of vocal sound are part of musical expression. Diemo Schwarz is based in Paris and an active contributor both to improvised music practice using computers, and to emergent research on concatenative synthesis, a technique where tiny particles of sound are re-assembled algorithmically into new sonic realities. Their duo folds exploratory voice and fragmented electro-acoustics in strange communions. Might remind hardcore Tone List fans of James Bradbury and Sage Pbbbt's collaboration on one of our earliest releases, Biomimicry.

Accordionist Kirsten Symczycz & drummer Ben Greene (orphans, Dez Cartez) return for their first on-stage duo collaboration in some time. Both jazz-trained but influenced by post-rock, doom and improvised musics, they've a precise control of both delicate and dense textures in improvising.

Doors and bar open at 7:30pm, live music starts a little after.

Tone List events work on a pay-what-you-can principle: you are welcome to pay any amount. For this gig we suggest $25 or $15. These prices help us to pay the artists something reasonable. Paying more will support the artists, and may also in effect subsidise those that are unable to afford to pay. We encourage carers, companion card holders, Indigenous people and people in difficult financial situations to enter for free.

Accessibility: This event is held upstairs at PS, which is only accessible via two flights of stairs. Gender-neutral accessible bathrooms are located on the ground floor. The music will at times be very loud or very quiet. No flashing lights or strobes will be used.

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.
