ANDREW TUTTLE – SLOWCATION ALBUM LAUNCH
SCALE FREE NETWORK – MICROSCOPIC VISUAL EXPEDITIONS INTO BLUE NOISE
+ WARM WINTER TREATS
BANANA SUNDAYs are a new monthly social sound series on Sunday afternoons as The Walls presents sound artists, artists who play with sound and projections, VJs and noise makers. It’s your chance to go a bit bananas before the start of the working week, and to indulge in some delectable delights as audio and visual currents flow in tune with the Coral Sea on our doorstep.
For June 21, our special guests are:
ANDREW TUTTLE, based in Brisbane, Australia; creates music and sounds that explore the relationship between instrumentation, structure and genre within electronics and acoustics. Tuttle, usually solo, although occasionally in semi-regular and ad-hoc collaboration, creates a synthesis of electronic/acoustic instrumentation and genre, and improvisation/composition performed on computer, banjo, synthesiser, acoustic guitar, electronics, organ, voice, etc. Prior to 2013, Tuttle primarily recorded and performed under the moniker Anonymeye, releasing three albums, appearing on two dozen other recorded releases, and performing over 100 times in Australasia and Europe. Under his own name, solo and in collaboration, Tuttle has performed at venues and festivals including Gallery of Modern Art (Brisbane), St Jerome’s Laneway Festival (Brisbane), Melbourne International Jazz Festival (Melbourne), Judith Wright Centre (Brisbane), Sound Klub (Hobart), Metro Arts (Brisbane), Sonic Masala Festival (Brisbane), The Hi-Fi (Brisbane), The Bird (Perth), and Make It Up Club (Melbourne). Tuttle has shared lineups with with Matmos (USA), Forest Swords (UK), The Soft Pink Truth (USA), OM (USA), Omar Souleyman (Syria), Prince Rama (USA) and Marihiko Hara (Japan) – amongst others; and has collaborated live and/or on record with artists including Matmos, Mike Cooper, Lawrence English, Blank Realm, Heinz Riegler, Qua, Kris Keogh, Feet Teeth, and Pale Earth.
It’s the Gold Coast launch of Slowcation, Tuttle’s first long play under his own name. Andrew will be bringing his signature mix of chilled and otherworldly sounds derived from acoustic instrumentation, electronics and signal processing, deftly but insistently warping and blurring those old genre boundaries until they dissolve into a puddle of hazy, sunlit half-dreams. No promises as to what this music does to your mind…! Why don’t you drop by on Sunday the 21st and find out?
SCALE FREE NETWORK (SFN) is an Australian art-science collaborative made up of two artists (Briony Barr & Jacqueline Smith) and a microbiologist (Dr. Gregory Crocetti). Their interdisciplinary workshops and interactive installations focus on observation of the micro-scale as a source of inspiration and wonder, combining drawing processes, sculpture and microscopy as tools for visualising, exploring and learning about ‘invisible’ worlds.
