Event description

Description

Electronic music collective Clan Analogue is proud to present German musician Peter Pichler on his first Australian tour, playing the unique Trautonium live for the first time outside of Europe at Trautoniks.Peter will be collaborating with Rae Howell (Sunwrae Ensemble) and Nick Wilson (Random Acts of Elevator Music) in a one-off improvisational performance that will be a unique combination of musicians and technology.

The Trautonium is one of the rarest electronic instruments in the world, invented in Berlin in 1929. Often considered the forerunner of the synthesizer, it was famously used in the soundtrack of Hitchcock’s film The Birds. In his youth Peter Pichler met Oscar Sala, the performer who first demonstrated the Trautonium in 1930, and he has now taken up the mantle of performing and recording with the instrument, upholding and expanding its legacy for today’s era.

Peter Pichler is the only touring artist performing live on the Trautonium today. His visit to Melbourne from Germany will be the first opportunity for local audiences to hear this instrument in concert as it has until now never been heard live outside of Europe. Peter’s work with the Trautonium includes new classical music, live film music and modern electro-pop.

Minimalist composer and performer Rae Howell (Sunwrae) has recently returned to Australia after living in London for the last six years. Her set with Peter Pichler will be her first performance in Melbourne for four years, utilising her hypnotic arpeggiated vibraphone techniques in a unique sonic live soundscape. Melbourne electronic music artist Nick Wilson (Random Acts of Elevator Music) will complete a one-off trio lineup of Trautonium, vibraphone and electronics.

Trautoniks will also feature sets from some of Melbourne’s greatest live synthesizer performers, utilising technologies old and new. Ehsan Gelsi (Oolluu) is one of Melbourne’s most accomplished modular synth performers, joining with fellow synth virtuoso Steve Williams who will bring his rare collection of early 1970s EMS synthesizers.

Michael Mildren has recently released his acclaimed collection of Process albums through Clan Analogue, exploring facets of electronic music performance developed through his intensive study of Kraftwerk.
