Pretty Gritty – Of Most Excellent Provenance



Pretty Gritty #17 / Provenance
Sunday Dec 4, 2016

Via pretty-gritty.net:

The final Pretty Gritty for 2016 teams up with the most excellent record label Provenance, the latest most excellent venture by the tireless Stuart Buchanan, to offer a small sampling of the most excellent stable of innovative altpopelectronicaambientdroneexotica.

In a split set (like a split album — it’s a new thing as of now) Lortica will morph himself into When We Never offering his hypertextured, super-psych drone dreamscapes. Hiking up the Hume from the ACT, Shoeb Ahmad will bliss us away with his shimmering guitar and spacey pop deconstructions. Finally Medicine Voice’s transcendent vibrations will send us into the sublime as she launches her hypnotic new single.

5.30pm-9pm, $12 full / $10 Concession
107 Projects, 107 Redfern St, Redfern

Eclectic and experimental Australian music, presented by Stuart Buchanan – weaving documentary stories and interviews with new music specials and live performances.

In this first episode, we take a deep dive into ‘Pretty Gritty’ – an intimate experimental music event in Sydney’s Redfern district, where you’re greeted at the door with delicious home baking and a warm welcome from curator Gail Priest. Plus, interviews and music with three artists from the most recent ‘Pretty Gritty’ event – vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Astrid Zeman; Sydney sound artist Daniel Whiting and Canberra musician Happy Axe, who lulls beautiful and eerie tones from her violin and musical saw.
