5:15pm - Peon

Sam Price – drums, laptop, synths, voice
Ronny Ferella – drums, melodica, ngoni, analogue effects

Straddling the worlds of jazz, electronica and ritual music, Peon’s musical excursions utilise hi-tech gadgets and folkloric instruments creating an enthralling, transcendental experience of music made in the moment – a double drummer electro improv two man festival of exploratory sound. Peon came together in 2009 initially as a “research project” exploring the challenges of realtijme improvising between man and machine. Sam was at the time undertaking post-grad study in this field, at the Victorian College of the Arts and asked Ronny to play the skeptic and to find holes in his musicmaking theories.

Peon

Fabric is an improvised ensemble. Devised by drummer Ronny Ferella, saxophonist Shaun Rammers and bassist Mick Meagher, the group plays on the idea of stretching, bending, reshaping the practice of group improvisation- sometimes meditative, sometimes explosive but an always in motion real-time compositional unit.

Fabric were the recipients of DEV RES II in 2016.

DEV RES V: Music Is Sport // Dissolutions

Doors at 5pm
$10 full // $5 concession
{ CASH ONLY }

The DEV(elopment) RES(idency) program is an initiative from Lebowskis, designed and presented in the spirit of fostering creative growth in new and established ensembles. Now entering its fifth series, this residency is available to two applicants and comprises three performances over a six-month period. The intent of the program is to allow ensembles to develop a creative concept and showcase its growth with a performance every two months, culminating in a live recording at the final show.

The recipients of DEV RES V are Atienne Bakker and Timothy Franklin, and the second performance of their projects will take place on April 29th.

Music is Sport.jpg

5:15pm - Music Is Sport

Atienne Bakker - guitar and musical direction
Joel Trigg - keyboard
Cameron Sexton - drums

This project is built on integrating several interdisciplinary and conceptual subjects in order to create a new and unique form of performance and experience. Firstly it combines the traditionally separate fields of sports and music, secondly it combines electronic improvisation with acoustic improvisation, and finally it aims to combine musical improvisation with visual improvisation. Throughout the residency these concepts will be combined with the aim of creating a cyclic performance method in the final concert. This cyclic performance works because the elements are designed to influence to each other in during the process of their creation.

Performance 1: Football
The first performance is most traditional performance of the three. Using acoustic instruments to improvise whilst reacting to visual cues from sporting events. The cues may initiate the playing of pre-composed material. If possible the video reactions will be limited to occurring from direct audio which will alter two potential clips to be blended with each other and altered based on sound. The first sport will be football.

Performance 2: Boxing
The second concert will use electronic instruments which will be more directly mapped to the visual component; the signals used to create sound will alter the video parameters such as RGB, image position, pixilation, etc. The second sport will be boxing.

Performance 3: Chess
The final performance will be using live footage of a chess game being performed in the room itself. Live footage will be altered by both electronic instruments and acoustic instruments. The influence of the music and visuals has potential to influence the game itself creating an entire loop of sport and sound.

Tim Franklin (Dev Res).jpg

6:15pm - Dissolutions

Timothy Franklin - saxophone and musical direction
Joe O'Connor - piano
Isaac Gunnoo - double bass
Hugh Harvey - drums

This project aims to develop ground first broken by Keith Jarrett’s European quartet in the mid 1970’s. The ensemble aims to marry the thematic, harmonic, and melodic sensibilities of music of the European art music tradition with free improvisation and the rhythmic and textural approach of the jazz tradition.

Performance 1: ‘Chamber Jazz’ Quartet
This performance will present a number of short pieces utilising a modern jazz style and formal structures. Thematic material will draw on classical gestures and contemporary harmony. See Theme and Variations, and The Declaration within the accompanying playlist for early examples of this concept. 
The ensemble will consist of saxophone (likely the rarely heard tenor in C), piano, bass, and drums.

Performance 2: The Suite.
Performance 2 will further develop the concepts explored in performance 1, but will take a more formally ambitious approach. The performance will see the premiere of a new work written specifically for the occasion. This work will take the form of a longer suite consisting of several connected movements loosely grounded in the baroque suite, and utilising contemporary classical harmony. The heavy improvisatorial focus of the earlier performance will be retained, but the formal context will be further removed from those commonly used within the jazz tradition. ‘Echo’, within the accompanying playlist, provides some insight into what is intended.
Again the ensemble will consist of a saxophone-led quartet.

Performance 3: Counterpoint
Performance 3 will utilise the larger and somewhat unconventional ensemble of saxophone, bass clarinet, alto flute, viola, cello, and rhythm section. This ensemble will enable exploration of textural and contrapuntal ideas within an interactive improvising ensemble. The new works to be played at this performance will attempt to weave a line between group improvisation, intricate counterpoint, and organic formal structures, and will showcase the unusual textures possible with this diverse and flexible instrumentation.

“Cooper was forging connections between folk and experimental musics long before America got New or Weird…”
- The Wire

English guitarist Mike Cooper has been a musical explorer for over 40 years, in various genres. Initially a folk-blues guitarist and singer songwriter his work has diversified to include improvised and electronic music, live music for silent films, radio art and sound installations. He may be the only guitarist who has performed with both John Lee Hooker and Keith Rowe (not at the same time, that would be weird!).

His 1969 l.p. “Oh Really!?” on Pye records is widely acclaimed as one of the best acoustic blues albums of the period. In the late 1970’s he began to develop a parallel career and establish himself on the avant-garde and free-improvised music scene, forming The Recedents with saxophonist Lol Coxhill and drummer Roger Turner- a free improvising trio now in its third decade. In 2007 he released Hipshot Guitars – a 3CD compilation of 37 avant garde guitarists which opens with Melbourne based guitar torturer Gary Butler.

Cooper and Butler get together with Warren Burt, Houston Dunleavy, Rod Cooper and Rafal Kaczmarek for two nights of musical exploration, improvisation and miscellaneous noisemaking. It will be weird – but interesting.

Scandinavia’s Greatest Hits is a collaboration between alto saxophonist Holly Moore and pianist Jarrod Chase. They draw inspiration from the popular European record label ECM and ambient electronic music. Melding the sounds and ideas from these influences the two play freely and lyrically over original compositions and those of some of their favourite musicians.

Scandinavia's Greatest Hits were the recipients of Dev Res III in 2017.

Bianca Gannon - piano, gamelan, & electronics
Elliott Hughes -trumpet & electronics

Having met at the Australian Art Orchestra’s 2016 Creative Music Intensive, Gannon and Hughes have continued working together, developing a language around their mutual interest in traditional Korean Hohup rhythms and Pansori. The duo aims to combine this language with their individual electro-acoustic projects. The imagined aesthetic is one of broad and resonant textures, with an ancient or ritualistic feel generated by the gamelan instruments and cyclical rhythmic cells. Although only a duo, the possibilities of timbre and colour are vast, with the electronics used to elongate sounds, repeat phrases from the past, or add depth and complexity to the live instrument.

Bianca Gannon & Elliot Hughes were the recipients of Dev Res IV in 2017.

Led by trumpeter-composer Reuben Lewis, I Hold the Lion’s Paw (IHTLP) is an eight-piece collective that features some of Melbourne’s most exciting musicians. The music is born out of an organic cross-over of afro-beat, jazz and outré electronics. Expect to hear as much as electro-acoustic noise, slowly evolving soundtracks, afro-beat inspired grooves and psychedelic free jazz.

The band was formed in 2016 and was the first recipient of the Lebowskis' DEV(elopment) RES(idency) program. They continue to perform regularly, locally and nationally, and this year released their first LP, 'Abstract Playgrounds'.

"Reuben Lewis, I think we were flirting or maybe it was just me flirting with you?  Ah well, ah well, ah well.  Ah well it’s all for the promotion of my band.  And, you know, any press is good press and any mess is good stress.  It’s all good.  No worries.  I’ve forgotten already what you even said.  Nah. It’s in the past, it’s whatever.  Oh, don’t even worry about it."

Reuben Lewis, from the popping psychedelic jazz collective I Hold the Lion’s Paw, and Emily Bennett, from the landscaping surrealist improvised trio Great rack and an empty club reverb, clash in the meta-named duo, I Hold The Great Rack.  Lewis hustles on trumpet through an outboard of effect pedals as Bennett speaks her mind via an outdated Korg multi-effects rack.

Bennett's project Great rack and empty club an reverb received DEV RES II in the second half of the 2016.

Tam Vantage // Soft Power (single launch)

5:15 - Tam Vantage

Following up his 2015 release ʻLife in High Definitionʼ, ʻShow Me To The Sunʼ enters our musical sphere as the second full length album by Melbourneʼs own Tam Vantage. After an inter-album period of sunken emotions, band leader Tam had utmost faith in band members Chris (guitar), Rowan (bass) and Jack (drums) to help conceive and father his brain child. They booked a weekend with producer John Lee (Lost Animal, Hollow Everdaze, Free Time) and tracked all the core instrumentation. Further writing of lyrics and overdubs followed, with these finishing touches being captured at Chrisʼ home studio. This album presents a more immersive and shoe-gaze influenced sound than that of Tamʼs previous work with T.V. (and further back, his work with Pop Singles). The album is at times conflicted about its focal point; it balances an obsession with negativity, death and low expectations with a fragile human sensitivity and a desire for something more fulfilling than that which is at hand.

6:15pm - Soft Power (single launch)

Matthew Roche - guitar
Oscar Neyland - double bass
Chris Cameron - drums

Soft Power is a long standing musical project by guitarist Matthew Roche that is undoubtedly jazz-tinged but also (more importantly) vulnerable, genderless, dorky & kitsch, unshowy and meditative. After a sold out album launch early last year with ‘A Breath Is Like a Swinging Door’ and with new band members and many successful shows later, they return to launch a new single ‘Getting Out of The Way of Yourself’. Taken from their upcoming album which is due for a mid 2018 release, the new single marks a radical shift in direction for Soft Power as they dig deep into slow tempo instrumental pop jams exploring themes of self-awareness and personal growth.

Emily Bennett is a brazen contemporary vocalist, accordion player, sound artist and educator. Melismatic, insistent and infectious. A graduate of Theatre/Media from Charles Sturt University, the Australian National University School of Music and Honours in Jazz and Improvisation from Victorian College of the Arts. She’s performed with the First Baboon Cilivization, Nyash! Afrobeat Collective, Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde, Sunburnt Soul Collective, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus and been commissioned to compose and design sound for the You Are Here festival, Short + Sweet Dance Festival, Bogong Centre for Sound Culture, the Young Music Society, Going Nowhere festival and live art company Big One Little One. Her trio, Great rack and an empty club reverb, were the recipients of the Lebowskis Development Residency and also curated in the Critical Animals Symposium to present at the opening for the This is Not Art festival in Newcastle. They perform and collaborate regularly in Melbourne.

Michael McNab is a drummer, improvisor, electronic musician and interdisciplinary sound/performance artist from Melbourne. Listening with an unfixed body and open eyes, his kinetic interactions with collaborators, objects and site form the material of his work. He is interested in human and non-human presence as impetuses for sound making, and in spatiality and anti-virtuosity as ways to shake up audience-performer relationships. Michael makes solo and participatory percussion performances, modifying, deconstructing and spatialising different parts of the drumset and combining them with found objects and microphone feedback to build abstract sound worlds. He also releases surrealist collage-based electronic/hip hop music and makes experimental performance under the alias “Wumpy”. He has performed around Australia and in France, Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Norway and the Netherlands. Collaborators past and present include Rebecca Jensen, Shian Law and Geoffrey Watson in the dance world, and Mick Douglas, Josten Myburgh, Jenny Barnes, Shani Mohini-Holmes, the Phonetic Orchestra and THIS ensemble in the music/sound world.!!

Reuben is also a co-leader of the international new-music groups The Phonetic Orchestra and SVELIA as well as a being member of the trad-jazz band The Grubs, free-improv groups Palaver and Infinite Ape, contemporary-jazz ensemble The Unfix Orchestra (formerly The Bennetts Lane Big Band), cross-medium improv collective THIS Ensemble and nu-soul outfit 30/70. Reuben has independently released five albums under his own name as well as several others as co-leader, both in Australia and Europe. He has toured in Australia, Europe and South-East Asia and appeared at prestigious festivals such as Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Melbourne Jazz Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, WOMADelaide, MAP Malaka, Sound Out, You Are Here, Canberra International Music Festival, Capital Jazz Project, Sydney Fringe, AsiaTOPA and MAP Melbourne.

David Brown has been involved in the Melbourne avant-garde, art rock/punk rock scene since the mid-seventies with such groups as "False Start", "Signals" and "Dumb and the Ugly". The first two of these groups began from associations made around the time he was completing a diploma of fine arts in the mid-1970s. In all his subsequent projects Brown has continued to develop a vocabulary that runs the gamut from rock bassist through experimental guitarist to sound artist. In addition, his activities as a solo improviser and composer have been consolidated by a return to education, with the aim to research the relationship between digital recording technology and improvisatory techniques, concluding in an M.A. completed at RMIT in 2001. Following this Brown undertook a PhD research project at RMIT University investigating the use and benefits of electroacoustique compositions and field recordings within a hospital Emergency Department. This doctorate was completed in late 2012 and a book providing an overview of the project was subsequently published in 2013.

Ronny Ferella first established his reputation through four critically acclaimed CD releases with his group, IshIsh. He has toured nationally and internationally including a performance at the Umbria Jazz Festival in 2001. His musical endeavours cover wide stylistic ground and include groups such as WAYFINDERS with Mark Shepherd and Jon Hunt, PALAVER with Geoff Hughes, Miroslav Bukovsky and Reuben Lewis, OMELETTE with Stephen Magnusson, Jordan Murray and Mark Shepherd, electro acoustic duo PEON with Sam Price and NORTH/SOUTH with Lloyd Swanton, Jess Green and Aaron Flowers.

Mark Shepherd is a double bassist and electronic musician from Melbourne, Australia. Mark has collaborated with a wide range of Australian based musicians, particularly from the jazz and avantgarde music scenes. Mark has also established himself as a soloist having performed solo at venues and festivals in Australia and Europe. Mark's unique approach to the double bass is a result of his interest in a broad range of music from around the world, including avant-guarde and experimental music, and in particular minimalistic music, both traditional and modern. Mark's solo electronic work typically utilises sampler, analogue synthesiser, percussion, analog effects, and is often drone based. Mark’s solo double bass performances explore microtonal pitch, use space/silence and are occasionally accompanied by drones.

Adam Halliwell has been a constantly active musician in Melbourne since 2008. After finishing studies at the VCA in 2013, he moved on to work in performing and improvising with left of field Disco group ‘Mildlife’ and Ethiopian/Melbourne collaboration ‘The Lalibelas’, in which they released a self-title album through Vision 8. 2015 saw the release of ‘Sun Ghost’, a collaboration with drummer and percussionist Maria Moles. They spent the year performing around Europe and Australia, receiving the opportunity to perform with the Sicilian Improvisers Orchestra, directed by Lelio Giannetto. In 2016, Adam released ‘The First Baboon Civilization’ on Moontown Records, a free jazz record using only a Shure PG48 microphone, predominantly used for Spoken Word or Karaoke. Critics called it “A cultural gift that makes jazz spicy and fun again” – (Kai Nobuko, Yeah I Know It Sucks) and, “There's not a great deal of music in this vein being made this good” – (Keith Pettinger, Awkward Movments). The record gave birth to the collective ‘The First Baboon Civilization Orchestra’, which Adam directs, composes for, cooks for and performs in. They have performed live to air at Triple R’s performance space for Dan Dare’s show ‘How High The Moon’, and to a sold out crowd at Howler for the Moontown Showcase. In 2016, the group performed as part of the ‘Lebowskis Development Residency’.

Maria Moles performs extensively around Melbourne both solo and with various ensembles, including performances at festivals such as Women’s Jazz Festival, Falls Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Tilde New Music Festival, Sugar Mountain Festival, Mona Foma and Dark Mofo. In May 2015, Maria toured Europe with Melbourne-based guitarist Adam Halliwell for the release of their debut album titled 'Sun Ghost'. In the same year, Maria toured Australia with alternative rock band Jaala, supporting grammy nominated neo-soul band 'Hiatus Kaiyote' for their Australian tour. The band since then has supported The Internet (USA), Methyl Ethel (PER), Polica (USA), and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizzard (MEL). Maria's solo project 'Mondo Flockard' explores the use of layering sounds/rhythms played on either drum kit/percussion which are then electronically manipulated through the use of filters and pitch modulators. Her self-titled EP was released in 2016 through Tonelist, and was listed on Avant Music News under Best Albums of the Year 2016. Ian Parsons described it as "drumming taken into a new territory, hovering somewhere around sharp-edged electroacoustics and unsettled ambience".

Georgie Darvidis is one of Melbourne’s most versatile and adventurous young artists. Beginning her musical study exploring theatre and classical vocal technique lead to major roles with The Melbourne Theatre Company and The Victorian Opera Company. After completing a Bachelor in Improvised music at The Victorian College of the Arts, she began to investigate more traditional jazz styles as well as free improvisation and cross disciplinary compositional forms. This lead to overseas study with acclaimed practitioners Shelley Hirsch and Theo Bleckmann in 2013. Upon her return to Australia, Georgie began to focus on producing original multimedia works independently, playing the role of composer, performer, film maker, and editor.

Jenny Barnes’ current work is a rigorous investigation into sound as meaning and the absence of sound in meaning. Her work follows a larger trajectory across creative practice and empirical research into language and community engagement. Barnes’ work as an improvising vocalist embodies the spontaneity, expression and empathetic experience of language and language acquisition. Employing unconventional vocal techniques, thorough understanding of phonetic and phonological patterns both sonic and silent (Auslan) and a deep respect for others, it is a creative work that unfolds and reveals sonic and energetic peculiarities in various environments with attention and devotion to the process itself.

Rafal Kaczmarek - Drums & Trumpet

Tim Hilton - Trombone, Melodica & Percussion

Gary Butler - Guitar, Toys & Stupidity

 

A trio. Fools in a Forest. Will Anybody hear them?


 

6:15pm - Soft Power

 

Matthew Roche - Guitar

Peter Bouwman - Bass

Cameron Sexton - Drums

 

Music for your subconscious to dance to, gently created by humans. Although not averse to the great jazz traditions of yesteryear, guitarist/composer Matthew Roche formed Soft Power to pare down and simplify his compositions to a basic natural impulse: the human desire to communicate through sound. Joined by good friends Peter Bouwman (bass) and Cameron Sexton (drums), at the heart is a strong folkloric element of simple pop-like melodies and fluid rock orientated grooves that keep everyone honest. The music is spacious, open and instinctive and was inspired by a period of intense meditation practice at a silent Zen retreat resulting in a Dark Night of the Soul; a personal journey into the minds undertow where one attempts to find meaning in a world that appears to be on the surface meaningless.
