Surface Noise (series)

Surface Noise is a new series of limited edition (50 copies), hand-numbered CDRs documenting live performances of experimental and noise artists. Each volume features live performances from two different artists; the first initially invited by the curators, and the second then chosen by the first artist. Co-released by Melbourne labels Iceage Productions and Shame File Music, the series will consist of ten volumes.

cleaninglady/Klunk - Surface Noise vol. 1 CDR The Surface Noise series kicks off with a Melbourne double, featuring the modular synthesis noise of cleaninglady and a subterranean performance of unique handmade instruments and electronics from Rod Cooper’s Klunk.

Cat Hope/White Drummer - Surface Noise vol. 2 CDR "Fetish 25" sees Perth's Cat Hope in bass guitar noise mode, screaming into pickups and coaxing deep frequencies from the strings with radios and whips. White Drummer takes subterranean noise literally, playing solo drumkit whilst being lowered into the icy waters of the Derwent river at MONA FOMA in 2013, not missing a beat as she continues to play assisted by breathing apparatus, all recorded live here.

Joe Musgrove/Makro & Hetlev - Surface Noise vol 3. CDR A double header from a selection of Brisbane masters of drone and electronic abstraction. Musgrove has long been a master of all things drone, with both his solo work and as part of Biffplex. On his track we hear the last part of an 8 hour overnight performance, as it all grinds to an entropic end. Makro/Hetlev are Lloyd Barrett (Diaspora, Secret Killer of Names) and Paul Forbes Mitchell (Hetleveiker) in live electronic dialogue.
