A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes
 
A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes is a blank slate, heavily informed by work in radio making (Radio National, Paper Radio, Better Off Dead, Wiluna Remote Community School) and music (Speed Painters, ii, Aleks and the Ramps). Curious about the parameters set by a live performance (time, amplification, contained space, physical activity, assumptions of attention), A Jetty Lined with Brightly Painted River Canoes will (probably) be a sounded response to a handful of questions:
Is it valuable to sound nice? What is entertaining? Are stories distracting? How do performers manage audience attention? What do we all wish to achieve by being present, and to what extent can we satisfy all parties?
 
Kawai Yoshitake
 
Kawai Yoshitake is visiting Melbourne from Japan, while he is here he has been listening to what the city has to offer and making some beats of his own.

Performer details:

Alex Garsden

Alexander Garsden (b. 1987) is a composer, guitarist and electro-acoustic musician, working across multiple exploratory musical disciplines. He is based in Melbourne, Australia.

Recent works include commissions from the Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, Speak Percussion, Michael Kieran Harvey, Jessica Aszodi, Eugene Ughetti, and Golden Fur, alongside performances with Slave Pianos (Melbourne/Yogyakarta), Erkki Veltheim, and
Rohan Drape.

He performs as a soloist of both notated and improvised musics, and in a range of other contexts including True Strength (with Ida Duelund-Hansen), Francis Plagne, Ned Collette and Wirewalker, Yuko Kono, and Forth Impact (with Sam Dunscombe).

Alexander is co-director of the INLAND Concert Series, and has taught through the RMIT and the University of Melbourne.

Amanda Terry & Tim Green

Violin and percussion duo from Brisbane.

Matthew Revert

Matthew Revert is an author based in Melbourne, Australia. His work tends toward the indescribably unusual and patently absurd and defies easy genre classification.

His first book, ‘A Million Versions of Right’ was released in July 2009 by Australian-based press, LegumeMan Books. It has been very well received by those kind enough to read it, which to be honest, isn’t that many people.

Outside of writing, Matthew also works as a graphic designer. He tries admirably to record music, however he’s not very good at it. His only area of vague aptitude is in writing.
