It was a rather cool and cloudy early Sunday morning in Freo, but the sun is coming through right now at 9am, so get out and about and enjoy our beautiful city!

The Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road is already underway and open till midday.

The FOMO Colour event by Sirona Capital at Fremantle Oval runs from 10am to 2pm and the hundreds of easels will create one very large canvas. Will it be a Guinness Book of Records entry?

The idea is for anyone-young and old- to come to the oval and paint an image, supported by local artists Anya Brock and Dave Spencer. It is a free event with entertainment and food stalls, so support it!

And from 2-4pm Emily Baker will be singing at the free courtyard music session in the Fremantle Arts Centre, where Animaze is also on with amazing animals for kids and lots to do.

Get ready for the great Lucky By the Ocean concert series, featuring Lucky Oceans and friends, at Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach, 10 Wednesdays and 2 Sundays  from November to January

Lucky Oceans is a name synonymous with music in Western Australia. One of the most influential steel guitarists of his generation he has played with big names in Australian music across jazz, folk, blues and country and the much-loved Zydecats in Fremantle.

He brings his special brand of musical magic to Kidogo Arthouse, on the shore of the Indian Ocean, on Wednesday evenings and two Sundays from November to early January.

Wednesday Nov 14 – Rose Parker – Immerse yourself in the compelling songs and stories of leading singer songwriter Rose.

Wednesday Nov 21 – David Hyams with the Miles to Go Trio – acclaimed producer plays his own Irish-inflected pieces with Stuart Paterson, Manoli Vouyoucalos and Dan Bright on guitar and dij.

Wednesday Nov 28 – Gemma Turvey – Pianist/composer Bundanon Trust Artist in Residence brings her pervasively expressive jazz/classical Palm Court sounds to the Sea, with cello and Lucky.

Wednesday December 5 – Fiona Rea Music EP launch with Bryan R Dalton supporting and with Lucky Oceans, Tristen Parr and Jon Edwards playing with the marvellous Fiona.

Sunday December 9 – Jeff Lang and Lucky Oceans – When Lucky heard that local luthier Ross Coole was making a guitar for Jeff, he cooked up an idea to have Jeff come over here and pick it up.  Jeff is one of the world’s greatest guitarists but is also a fine singer and songwriter.

Wednesday December 12 – Barrelhouse Juke Joint Blues from Jessie James Gordon, Paul Gioia, Bill Lawrie and Lucky bringing you more blue songs of joy from the Dirty Thirties.

Wednesday December 19 – After a long hiatus, this will be only the second performance this year by the Dave Brewer Lucky Oceans Quartet with Karl Florisson and Ric Eastman with some new material written especially for the occasion.

Sunday December 30 – Not a Wednesday! But we had to fit a Hawaiian Sundowner in, especially because Mr. Aloha -Sam Lemann – is in town. As an alternative to a try hard NYE, join Howie Morgan, Alistair Peel, Lucy Lemann, Lucky and the setting sun to celebrate the timeless kitsch of the Islands.

Wednesday Jan 2 – We’re working Sam Lemann hard and getting him together with his boyhood partner in crime Adam Gare and Lucky Oceans to recreate the swinging sounds of the Nansing Quartet minus the annoying name.

 

EX MACHINA-MUSIC INSPIRED BY MACHINES

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, culture, music, Uncategorized by freoview on November 10, 2018

 

GreyWing

EX MACHINA

GreyWing Ensemble. 7:30pm Wed 14 Nov. Old Custom’s House, Fremantle
$20/$10/$5 Tickets from Eventbrite

West Australian ensemble GreyWing present six works where the machine is front and centre. Ex Machina explores music made from, and inspired by, machines and the mechanical.

GreyWing Ensemble is known for presenting works with pointed social commentary, and though none of the pieces was overt in this regard, by performing works of non- European composers, championing female artists and commissioning new music from Western Australian composers, their bold programming is a positive shift in the Perth concert scene.” (Cool Perth Nights)

GreyWing:
Kirsten Smith | flutes, Lindsay Vickery | clarinet/saxophone, Melanie Robinson | cello,
Jameson Feakes | guitar, Catherine Ashley | harp

Russolo’s The Art of Noises (1913) proclaimed “we get infinitely more pleasure imagining combinations of the sounds of trolleys, autos and other vehicles, and loud crowds, than listening once more, for instance, to the heroic or pastoral symphonies”. Ex Machina explores music made from, and inspired by, machines and the mechanical. Works include pioneer in the field Robert Erickson, contemporary Europeans, James Saunders, Peter Ablinger, Joanna Bailie and new works by Camilla Hannan, Lindsay Vickery and Dane Yates.

Ex Machina deals with juxtapositions and parallels between the musically organic and assertive electronic gestures; creating something with an importance on focus dealing with ethereal yet organic sound.

PROGRAM

Robert Erickson Nine and a Half for Henry (and Wilbur and Orville)
Joanna Bailie Trains Australian premiere
Dane Yates Vinosity world premiere
James Saunders instruments with recordings Australian premiere
Camilla Hannan/Lindsay Vickery Telescope Turbine World premiere
Peter Ablinger Book of Returns Australian premiere
Robert Erickson’s ode to industrialization Nine and a Half for Henry (and Wilbur and Orville) recorded in refineries, on a freeway and up a carillon tower. Book of Returns by Peter Ablinger a modular work containing solo-pieces, solo-electronics, a cassette player, a single note or a scale, a performative situation, experiments with microphones, field recordings, picture projection, and occasionally, “ensemble situations”. Joanna Bailie’s Trains, in which the cellist moves between traditionally-notated melodies and material exploring locomotive sounds. James Saunders’ instruments with recordings, a subtle work, pairing acoustic instruments and electro-mechanical recordings. Vinosity, in which Dane Yate explores Australia’s reputation as a “drinking machine” via teenage drinking stats and sampled “Goon Bags” and Sound Artist Camilla Hannan and Lindsay Vickery collaborate on Telescope Turbine bridging Hannan’s field recording of the mechanics of astronomy with acoustic instruments.
GREYWING

GreyWing focuses on new australian music and environmental music and has presented over 30 premieres since their debut performance in April 2016. An important thematic strand in the GreyWing concerts is music featuring field recordings, images and other data from nature and the environment. Earlier this year GreyWIng released two albums on the local label Tone List reflecting these two aspects of their work Lines of Flight and nature forms i. In July GreyWIng together with Breaking Waves and Gerygone launched a monthly site-specific project Limited Hangout: in the field featuring works by local composers responding to and performed in specific the sonic/physical environments.

There is a lot on this Sunday, so take advantage of the good weather and connect with our Freo community.

There is a big Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road from 8-12 with additional art&craft and other stalls to the usual fresh and organic produce, breads, pastries, coffee, breakfast, etc. There is of course live music, face painting and Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm.

From 10-12 the Repair Cafe is on again at Stackwood, corner Stack and Wood streets in White Gum Valley, so if you’ve got anything that needs repair that is the place to go to.

 

Harbour Classic

From 1pm the Harbour Classic will be sailed in Fremantle Port, so that should be a great spectacle to enjoy.

And last but not least, pop powerhouse Felicity Groom and her three-piece band will be performing at the free music courtyard session in the Fremantle Arts Centre from 2-4 pm.

Sally&George

 

Yes, there is still a bit of rain around and the wind is quite strong and crisp, but I am optimistic that it will all improve over the next few hours to ensure that we can all enjoy the Fremantle Arts Centre Sunday Music courtyard session.

Come and listen to the unique brand of ‘Americana’ and great vocals and free-style bluegrass of Sally&George, who came all they way from Nashville to perform in Freo.

The cafe, bar and pizza bar will all be open and the print award exhibition is still on display.

The concert is on from 2-4pm and is free!
