Mono6
Atsuhiro Ito and Robbie Avenaim plus Guests

As Optrum, Tokyo-based artist and curator Atsuhiro Ito explores an intense almost coma-inducing haze of flickering light and noise using his self-designed amplified fluorescent-light instrument. He teams up with Australia’s most unusual rhythmic force Robbie Avenaim, for an all-out sensual assault. Presented in conjunction with Audiopollen, Mono6 plays host to the launch of Audiopollen’s Ready, Fire, Aim festival, a culmination of all things underground. MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 26 March at 7pm.

Marco Fusinato, James Rushford, and Joe Talia

Fresh from his inclusion in Sonic Youth’s Sensational Fix exhibition, Melbourne-based artist and musician Marco Fusinato heads to Brisbane to debut material from his forthcoming Ripping Skies album, on American label No Fun Productions. An exploratory guitarist, he creates massive washes of caustic vibration. Joining him are electro-acoustic scouts Joe Talia and James Rushford who seek out the exotic and erratic terrain of their instruments. They are purveyors of stasis: part instrumental concrete, part alien drone. MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 9 April at 7pm.

Mike Cooper

Italian-based post-everything musician Mike Cooper creates a live soundtrack to Paradjanov’s lauded film The Colour Of Pomegranates. Cooper writes, ‘This ravishingly beautiful film was originally refused an export license, and banned by Soviet authorities for religious sympathies and lack of conformity to the strict socialist realism of the former Soviet Union. Paradjanov was arrested in December of 1973 and sentenced to five years hard-labor camps, charged with rape and homosexuality. His extraordinary film traces the life of eighteenth-century Armenian poet Sayat Nova (’The King of Song’), but with a series of painterly images strung together to form tableaux corresponding to moments of his life rather than any conventional biographic techniques. Pomegranates bleed their juice into the shape of a map of the old region of Armenia, the poet changes sex at least once in the course of his career, angels descend: the result is a stream of religious, poetic and local iconography which has an arcane and astonishing beauty.’ MONO: Expansive Sonic Environments, Intersecting Audiospheres, Singularity Of Sound, curated by Lawrence English (::Room40::). Thursday 23 April at 7pm. [image: The Colour of Pomegranates]
