    Amy May Stuart, Lily Tait and Ender Başkan: Crawl Space Radio (Mono Poly June)

    Amy May Stuart, Lily Tait and Ender Başkan: Crawl Space Radio (Mono Poly June)

    The dissonance of democracy; sum of an irreducibly complex combination of notes. We attune, celebrate, make difference audible, amplify disobedience, choreograph dissonance, enact alternative rituals and harmonies, open new horizons of possibility.

    Today on the podcast we revisit Mono-Poly-June with a Japanese ghost story told by Amy May Stuart, a performance of improvised violin by Lily Tait, and a selection of poems from Ender Başkan.

    Live on air, online and irl a program of live performances, radio plays, spoken words, archive recordings, and meta-mixes was broadcast in collaboration with Crawl Space Radio, an artist-led experiment in techno-institutional broadcasting from Samm Sutton and Lucy Dodd.

    Del Lumanta (Artist Profile)

    Del Lumanta (Artist Profile)

    Del Lumanta is an artist, musician, DJ, educator and organiser living and working on Eora Country. Their expansive practice moves between genres and mediums, explored under pseudonyms and collaborative projects.

    Fellow DIY and experimental musician Emma Ramsay takes a deep dive into the internal and lateral workings of Del Lumanta's sonic practice in Out of Field: The Sonic Practice of Del Lumanta published on LA’s online journal Disclaimer. Ramsay's profile traces Lumanta’s experimental roots within Sydney's community radio and DIY communities and underscores the way in which their incessant development of band projects and collaborations provides a freedom of movement in process and approach, to discard and pick up new creative processes at whim.

    Today on the podcast, Del Lumanta talks through how field recordings became a part of their music production, the affect of performance contexts within both institutions and the diy scene, and their work within community projects such as New Age Noise and Radio Skid Row.

    Raja Kirik (Ritual Community Music)

    Raja Kirik (Ritual Community Music)

    Folk, Noise, Electronics, Improvisation – how can radical music help us manifest new possibilities for thinking and imagine new ways of organising community through ritual behaviours, actions and languages?

    Today on the podcast Raja Kirik talks through the origins of their collaboration, the practice of bringing traditional Jaranan trance dance into a modern context, and their way of embodying music.

    Raja Kirik is a venture through trance dances from east and central Java, Indonesia. Hand built instruments fuse with high energy programmed sounds, producing hammering, transcendental walls of rhythm and texture. With frantic, seemingly endless forward momentum, the music of Raja Kirik inhabits a wide emotional breadth, cycling from disappointment to anger to loneliness.

    On Friday the 10th of June, Raja Kirik will play live at The Toff alongside Rama Parwata, Female Wizard and special guests for Liquid Architecture's Ritual Community Music series.

    Rama Parwata and Female Wizard (Ritual Community Music)

    Folk, Noise, Electronics, Improvisation – how can radical music help us manifest new possibilities for thinking and imagine new ways of organising community through ritual behaviours, actions and languages?

    Today on the podcast Rama Parwata and Female Wizard talk through the multi-genre influences to their sounds, creative processes and what to expect from their upcoming sets on the 10th of June at The Toff.

    Rama Parwata is a Naarm/Melbourne-based musician, composer, and curator who has a distinguished reputation for his audacious and technical aural explorations in sound, texture and rhythm on the drum-kit.

    Female Wizard’s reach is far and wide, working across choreography, dance, djing, event management and her unique take on electronic music. Exploring the weirder sides of techno, industrial, and IDM, Female Wizard creates a new collective transcendence through powerful sonic immersion.

    Mirasia b2b Kuya Neil

    Folk, Noise, Electronics, Improvisation – how can radical music help us manifest new possibilities for thinking and imagine new ways of organising community through ritual behaviours, actions and languages?

    Mirasia and Kuya Neil talk through the cross over of influences that led them to collaborating, the practice of sampling and how that impacts genre, and their involvement in community music groups such as The House of Silky and Sound School.

    Exploring the depths between music, dance and community, Mirasia is well regarded as an artist and community leader. Kuya Neil is a heavyweight of Melbourne’s underground hip-hop scene who’s production style blurs the lines of contemporary club and electronic music.
