We also have a super special performance by performance and sonic artist Lucas 'Granpa' Abela!
*****We ask for a $10 donation for the artist, much appreciated! ******
From his website:
"Today these turntable roots have became almost unrecognisable, evolving into his infamous glass instrument, the shards being nothing more than a giant diamond tipped stylus you vibrate with your mouth. He has been perfecting the instrument since it's invention in 2003, perfroming internationally as Justice Yeldham and with his glass/ drums/ piano trio, Rice Corpse and now simply as Granpa. He also founded the irreverent dualpLOVER organisation, promoting, touring and releasing stark music from Australia and abroad.
After a long performance career his ideas have morphed into participatory sound installations, or more accurately he builds large-scale instruments for musical play devised to switch roles between audience & performer. To do this abela uses situational aesthetics to engage people to inadvertently perform his music."
