This month Gear Shift sees a rare confluence of legendary figures from Australian music with the debut performance of Feverstone. Featuring technological iconoclasts John Phillips (Not Drowning Waving) and Renn Barker (Screwtape, Bloom and The Cubist Cigars) with special guests in tow, Feverstone will bring theremin, treated guitar, feedback walkie-talkies and other sonic apparatus to the mix. Their set commences at 9pm following the jam session at 7pm, and is guaranteed to be an inspiring misuse of electricity.
Clan Analogue’s Gear Shift monthly electronic music jam session continues onwards like an inexorable sine wave. Whether you play a laptop, smartphone or piece of hardware, old or new, whether you’re a seasoned performer or complete novice, anyone can come and join the on-the-fly sonic mayhem. Video artists Object_State provide a live behind-the-scenes projection mix of the knob-twiddling action.
Anyone is welcome to join in at Gear Shift. Just bring a synth, laptop, drum machine or any kind of electronic music-making gadget. The night is a great opportunity to play electronic music with other people, learn different techniques and try out new gear.
