Clan Analogue?s Gear Shift monthly electronic music jam session moves to a new phase of waveform synchronisation when the next event takes place on Wednesday the 27th of August at Loop on Wednesday the 27th of August. 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 will be honoured with a rare set by Audiomulch software developer Ross Bencina performing live as Mulchwerk. Rhythms of the past will pulse, collide and dissolve into texture and ambience. Mulchwerk perform using Audiomulch and an array of controllers.
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.
Bring gear to join in or listen & enjoy. Live set from Mulchwerk after jam.
