Clan Analogue’s Gear Shift monthly electronic music jam session continues onwards like an inexorable sine wave. Prepare for the next session at Loop on Wednesday the 30th of July. Whether you play a laptop, smartphone or piece of hardware, old or new, whether you’re a seasoned performer or complete novice, anyone can come and join the sonic mayhem.
This month Gear Shift sees a rare confluence of legendary figures from Australian music with the debut performance of Feverstone. Featuring technological iconoclasts John Phillips (Not Drowning Waving) and Renn Barker (Skrewtape) with special guests in tow, Feverstone will bring theremin, treated guitar, feedback walkie-talkies and other sonic apparatus to the mix. Their set commences at 9pm following the jam session and is guaranteed to be an inspiring misuse of electricity.
The Gear Shift jam starts at 7pm at Loop, 23 Meyers Place, in the Melbourne CBD. Arrive early for participant registration. Video artists Object_State provide a live behind-the-scenes projection mix of the knob-twiddling action.
Anyone is welcome to join in at Gear Shift. Just bring a synth, laptop, drum machine or any kind of electronic music-making gadget. The night is a great opportunity to play electronic music with other people, learn different techniques and try out new gear.
Gear Shift is supported by the City of Melbourne through its 2014 Arts Grant Program and takes place at Loop on the last Wednesday of each month.Share on Facebook
