THE SYDNEY RADIO ORCHESTRA Initiated by emerging, Sydney-based sound artist Jonathon Watts. A large improvising orchestra of musicians, sound artists and the general public will be building, playing, and manipulating radios. A live feed of the event will also be broadcast via radio, creating a radio feedback loop – imagine the sound of 80 radios feeding back on themselves. There will also be a program of radio building workshops, building up to a final group performance. See below for workshop details.
ERK’S ORCHESTRA (Electronic Resonance Korps) is a laptop-based ensemble, though it is not limited to only computers as performance tools. Founded in 2010, Erk’s Orch is comprised of a number of computer/electronics musicians and composers, bypassing the normally solo or small group mix that feeds into a large PA. Instead, the ensemble operates as a sectioned unit, with each individual generating sound from locally driven speakers into the ‘orchestra pit’ for a spatially articulate sonic construction. For Time Machine, Erk’s Orchestra performers are: Gail Priest, Daniel Whiting, Tom Smith, Emily Morandini, Melanie Herbert, Sam Bruce, Toby Burvill, Marcus Whale, and Monica Brooks. The ensemble will perform two pieces, one improvised, and one composition by Erk’s Orch honcho, Monica Brooks.
