Event description

Description

The Ironing Maidens will strike (while the iron is hot) at The White and Bright Laundrette- Sat 20th January 2018 - 7.30pm.

Join us for a night of live electronic performance, the interactive art of 'disclosure line' and more. Bring your own apron, t-shirt or hanky for an iron on transfer experience. We want to find out about your ironing habits!

The Ironing Maidens is a live electronic music performance art piece which explores the topics of domestic labour, technology and the history of women in electronic music.

The instruments used are traditional irons and ironing boards that have been adapted and built to create sound and effect triggers for the music and the visuals of the show. Contact microphones attached to the laundromat washing machines and dryers are also employed according to the specific site, to sonify the ambient sounds of the laundromat. These sounds are then manipulated through the irons and form the sonic bed of the performance piece.

The performers, Patty Preece and Melania Jack are music technology educators and performers. Based regionally in Byron Bay, they also run electronic music production and recording workshops. They won “Best Electronic Music Production” for the 2017 Dolphin Music Industry Awards, and have toured this show nationally and internationally to festivals and venues such as The METRO Sydney, Fusion Fest Germany, The Berlin Performance Art Festival and Falls Festival Byron Bay.

Don't miss this unique, one of a kind, interactive performance experience - you will never look at a laundromat in the same way again!

Don't forget to RSVP for free - laundromats have limited capacity!
