The Chromatic Memory by Timber Music Box

Sat 26 May 2018 | Event

Timber Music Box and Multicultural Arts Victoria (VIC)

The Chromatic Memory is the first documentary to be featured on the Timber Music Box social media channels as a weekly series of five episodes on the beauty of Melbourne’s multicultural music scene.

The Chromatic Memory documentary series is curated collectively by Timber Music Box and Multicultural Arts Victoria. Each episode highlights one artist or ensemble performing two songs at The Aviary Recording Studio with a short interview about how they make music in their home country and what creative processes they may use to connect them to their roots or other cultures.

The alliance between TMB and MAV looks to expose and support cultural and musical diversity and to encourage production of original music in Victoria.

This event is an exclusive opportunity to see The Chromatic Memory live on a big screen before the web premiere. The night kicks off at 7pm where with the showcase of the series in its entirety with an intermission and guest support band, Grace Jean.

TMB were granted funding from Creative Victoria and from their Pozible campaign supporters to make this dream a reality.

Speakeasy: Money

Tues 26 June 2018 | Event

Emerging Writers' Festival (VIC)

At Speakeasy, no subject is off the menu. Defy decorum and delve into delicious ideas, discussions and debates. Join us for dinner and drinks, with an entree of keynote speakers followed by an (actual) main course provided by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, and roundtable discussions between dinner guests and artists.

Come get curious about class and currency with Esther Anatolitis, Farah Farouque and Helen Razer. How do we reconcile personal and political principles with the glib practicalities of modern life? We’ll ponder alternative economies, class and elitism in the arts, and the market price of artistic integrity and truth-telling.

Writers since time immemorial have connected food and sex – after all, the brain is the biggest sex organ. Whet your appetites with Dani Weber, Angela Serrano and Dion Kagan as they talk erotic writing, gender, fluidity and desire. It’s going to be saucy, consensual and conversational – just the way we like it.

Speakeasy: Death

Thu 28 June 2018 | Event

Emerging Writers' Festival (VIC)

At Speakeasy, no subject is off the menu. Defy decorum and delve into delicious ideas, discussions and debates. Join us for dinner and drinks, with an entree of keynote speakers followed by an (actual) main course provided by Tiba’s, and roundtable discussions between dinner guests and artists.

A defining mystery of living, a necessary finality; death is often daunting. Joined at the table by Pia Interlandi, Hayley West and Elizabeth Flux, we’ll chew over the nature of death – and our ways of living with it. Whose deaths matter? Do we lack death literacy? Who is commemorated or erased in death? How do we ritualise grieving, healing, and celebration after death… and why?

“Feed” Creative Development

Mon 9 - Fri 13 Apr, Tue 17 - Sat 21 Jul | Artist Development

Nat Grant (VIC)

Sound artist Nat Grant is developing a work for solo drummer and feedback. Simply titled Feed, this work interrogates unsolicited feedback around gender roles in and outside of the arts. Feedback loops enhance or amplify change. The more we hear what we can (or can’t) do, the harder it becomes to challenge these ideas. Audio feedback, where a loop exists between an audio input (eg a microphone) and an output (ie a speaker), works similarly. Constant re-amplification of the same sound makes it bigger, louder, and harder to ignore. Feedback can sound loud, soft, strong vulnerable. There is no one way people of different genders perform or perceive sound. But our experiences of music continue to be distorted by stereotypes. Nat’s work will delve into the distorted views we have of ourselves and our peers: how different people ‘should’ act and what kind of art they ‘should’ make.
