Thanks to the Helpmann Academy, the Tyndall Assembly concert series will proceed from June onwards with secured financial backing. This will assist in many ways - particularly in giving collaborating artists a decent performance rate and producing some professional publicity items such as posters/flyers and purchasing a web domain.
Oh, I've designed a new logo as well.
Watch this space, etc.

On friday night I attended a Helpmann Academy function at a multi-millionaire's mansion in the wealthy suburb of Springfield. Though I was there as a member of the Foundation Board, I was asked as a favour to perform as a roaming troubadour for an hour or so. OK. I was happy to oblige and strut my stuff, but god it was weird...roving from one room to another singing to society's elite.
Here's a list of the songs I performed, some were repeated.
Temptation (Tom Waits)
Helium Reprise (Tom Waits/Tin Hat Trio)
Valentine's Day (orginal)
Losing Heart (original)
Love Minus Zero/No Limit (Bob Dylan)

Whilst I was in Meningie with some friends last week, I decided to record a few tracks on Seb's laptop when I had the place to myself one night. They were recorded in five hours, mostly first takes with a bit of overdubbing and processing here and there. The tracks themselves are no technological feat (also my playing is at times hampered by the wonders of wine), but I felt they warranted some form of release. That is, a limited release for the time being. Three tracks: "Stopframe", "Artist and Muse" and "Dedicated" made the cut. So here they are for your listening pleasure at my MySpace page - enjoy!
Once I can find a reliable server, I'll post the tracks for download. (stay posted..)

Well, I thought it would be neccesary to provide a seperate page for posts with relevance to my Masters research topic.
I'll still post the odd Masters-centric thing here at the Soniferous Garden, but for those of you who are more obsessive types, you can get your fix at the above URL.
Hidden Village (Seb Tomczak/Lauren Sutter), Mycorrizha (Justin Phelps/Jordon Bang) and West N'Mitchell (Damien West/Alex Mitchell) performed at the Trianide concert at the Gallery Delacatessen last night. Hidden Village did their Vetrex/C64/Gameboy thang, Mycorrizha made some noise, and West N'Mitchell presented a 3D film - complete with glasses to boot... It was good all round and I managed to finish the night with a couple of wines ... bonus!

In the past couple of days I have done the dirty business and signed myself up for a Myspace music account. As I am having ongoing problems with putting up audio files (I will get my own domain soon!) this at least allows visitors to listen to a few streaming tracks from my singer/songwriting stuff and sound art. Enjoy, and become my friend if you like.
