NoizeMaschin!! (NM!!) is a monthly experimental music concert. Running continuously for almost 6 years, each gig packs in 8 artists in a kaleidoscope of styles in a frenzy of short sets. All of the NoizeMaschin!! events are recorded and archived to ensure Western Australia’s experimental art and music scene has a place in the posthumous record (see NoizeMaschin!! on bandcamp). The low-fi, loose, DIY format encourages risk-taking, and a welcoming community of practitioners and enthusiasts of Weird Sound has built up around the show. The NM!! format has been successfully exported to Mandurah and London, which now have NM!! series of their own.

This month’s show, NoizeMaschin!! #71: WAModular May Madness, focuses on the fast-growing local modular synthesizer scene. Modular synthesizers are analogue instruments, each being a bespoke collection of electronic sound units, or modules. During a performance, the artist will connect modules together live to sculpt new sounds, rhythms, and melodies. The results range from sublime ambient soundscapes to pounding rhythms filled with electronic squelch and filter resonance. Every performance is unique and unrepeatable.

WAModular, a DIY synth enthusiast community fostered by Perth modular synth manufacturer, nonlinearcircuits, have been gathering monthly at the Artifactory to build modules for several years, giving Perth an unexpectedly large concentration of these instruments. This month NoizeMaschin!! showcases some of the machines built by local synthesizer-enthusiasts with a dedicated concert.

Expect to see stacks of blinking-lights, switches and dials, and hear new electronic sounds, Meet the builders and sonic-explorers charting new music possibilities with these analogue machines.

*"Preset recall is fake!"

Quoll Harness is the combustion of Thomas Fyshe Palmer and Dimity Magnus. Formulated in the ruins of CIA studios searching for the danceability in noise. The two miscalculate beats of fragmented analog circuitry to create ponderous roars of distracted music. Thomas is a breaker and Dimity a maker together formulating a chaos loop of ouroboric rhythms with vocal feed and patchworked synth.

Rich White: (curator)
“It's worth mentioning about the uniqueness of a modular synth as an individual instrument. One chooses their modules to make the instrument based on a sound/ or a style of synthesis and with this, the building blocks (the modules) are constantly in a state of flux. No two modular systems are the same and each new module adds infinite possibilities to the other modules. And with that the instrument is pure sound exploration, I liken the experience to travel. The way to play modular I find is to have a very loose idea or a texture I'd like to create and follow where the modular wants to take me: the modular plays me as much as I play it.”

Fun Facts:
The original Dr Who theme was produced by early electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram (http://daphneoram.org/), partly using modular synths at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The lineup for NM!!#71 features a balance of female and male artists: an open repudiation of many outmoded, cliched views of the scene.
