 AfterMATH by Ash Wednesday

Description

Australian electronic music pioneer Ash Wednesday presents AfterMATH, a new commissioned work for the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ and electronics.

Australian electronic music pioneer Ash Wednesday has always been determined to innovate and explore. Emerging in the seventies with a mixture of so-called punk rock, tape recorder experiments and an analogue synthesiser, Ash was a founder member of seminal groups JAB, The Metronomes, Crashland, Modern Jazz and Models, and was a central figure in the development of Australian synthpop and minimal music throughout the eighties. He also collaborated with Karen Marks on her celebrated release Cold Café. In 1992 he travelled to Germany where he was later to work with Nina Hagen and the legendary Einstürzende Neubauten.

During the past 10 years Ash has been confronted with the onset of a debilitating ailment known as progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). Despite losing control of the right hand side of his body he has been able to utilise the computerised MIDI control capabilities of the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ to create a stunning new commissioned work for the instrument. After a self-imposed hiatus from creative processes, this composition can be considered as being the AfterMATH.

With support from Nina Buchanan and students from the RMIT Digital Media course.

Proudly presented by City of Melbourne and Heavy Machinery Records.
