In September of 2009, red dust descended onto Sydney.
Now in 2019, it’s happening again in a small room in a pub in Glebe.
What will you hear amongst the haze?
Inspired by a video game that was inspired by a dust storm, this month is curated by Jane Aubourg.
Entry by donation goes towards commissioning new work and artists.

Splinter Magic: a winter festival with Splinter Orchestra and friends
Splinter Orchestra has always been an amorphous being; its shifting roster shaping the resultant music. Every Sunday sees a different subset of Splinter join together to play; this gathering is a weekly refuge for to bond, explore and create something that could be called magical.
Splinter Magic is a two day festival in July featuring subsets of Splinter and Spl-interlopers joining regular members. This event also includes the 'splintstallation'; Splinter Orchestra's mechanised ghost form. We celebrate the wider Splinter community in this titillating banquet of Sydney improvised music.

This 2 day workshop with TONY OSBORNE will explore the generative potential of studio improvisations.
Making connections between ideas, language, sound & movement, participants will be given the opportunity to uncover:
• The choreography and meaning of pedestrian movement
• The pleasures of voice production
• The innate raconteur
The weekend is suitable for anyone interested in enhancing their spontaneity, and discovering how the integration of sound, text and movement can provide a process for building confidence, self-realisation and extending existing skills.
10am -- 5pm daily (one hour lunch break)

This gig features a mighty ten – member version of the Coltrane Project to play John Coltrane’s rarely performed magnum opus Ascension. The original recording from 1965 lasts 40 minutes and is a work of intense energy. The Coltrane Project last played Ascension at the Side On Café in 2004 and was recorded by the ABC for Live on Stage. This version of the Coltrane Project band will include 2 basses and a talented array of improvisers with different approaches. Ascension features each soloist in turn alternating with barrages of horns and drums as the whole ensemble reaches for the stars!
The first half of the concert will feature arrangements of our favourite pieces from earlier periods in Coltrane’s development.
