A very exciting performance at EMU next week featuring Simon Whetham (UK), Tarab (VIC), Christian Haines (SA) and myself.

Simon Whetland (UK)

From working with field recordings to exploration of the acoustic qualities of a space and resonances of objects, Simon Whetham composes and performs immersive collages, both meditative and thought provoking

Tarab (Melbourne)

.. explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees.

+ Christian Haines & Tristan Louth-Robins

Doors 8:15pm, Start 8:30pm
Friday , 1 August

New live recording: TLR Live at the Wheatsheaf Hotel

I performed a solo set on Monday night at the Wheatsheaf Hotel with live renditions of the teapot work, Infuser; a new drone/vocoder work, Goyder’s Line; and a live preview of the upcoming album, The Door Into Summer.

I made a recording via my mixing desk to the Olympus LS-100, and following a bit of cleaning up and general mastering the end result sounds good. The live album (sequenced as a continuous series of individual tracks) is available for streaming and donation purchase on Bandcamp.



Following a brilliant Fleurieu road trip earlier this week, I’ve returned with a bunch of new field recordings for the Fleurieu Sound Map. The first couple of these recordings come from the Hay Flat region of the Second Valley Forest – moderate to strong winds, finches and groaning trees feature prominently.

Lauren Playfair: Seeing The Sights

Lauren Playfair: "Shifting Panorama" (2013)
Lauren Playfair: “Shifting Panorama” (2013)

My partner, Lauren Playfair is exhibiting new work at CACSA this month. Louise Vodic and Joe Felber are also exhibiting at the gallery.

CACSA (Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia)
14 Porter Street
Parkside, South Australia

OPENING: Friday 13th June 2014; 6-8pm
EXHIBITION DATES: 13th June – 13th July 2014; Tuesday to Friday 11-5pm; Saturday to Sunday 1-5pm

SEEING THE SIGHTS is a convergence of photographs from different places and times, re-addressed, the images are seen altogether differently than by their first audiences. The truths of the images shift with time and context, each reading changes with circumstance, and they are no longer the same images as when they were freshly printed, published and circulated.

Lauren Playfair is a visual artist from Adelaide. She completed her Masters degree by research (Visual Arts) at The University of South Australia in 2013. Her work has been exhibited at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in Hatched ‘10, in group shows at FELTspace, The SASA Gallery, Light Square Gallery and at the Australian Experimental Art Foundation with the Shoot Collective.
