New North Concert 6: Pollinator

Melbourne is a City of Literature

Event Date: 21 September 2022
Author / Presenters: New North

New North presents Pollinator

New North emerges from its winter hibernation with a program of exploratory music that charts the spectrum of experiences at the turn of the seasons. Charcoal grey and brooding give way to fresh blooms, an upward lift, and pollen in the air.


Aviva Endean & Dale Gorfinkel

Bass frequencies collide in this unique pairing bringing together Dale Gorfinkel’s most recent instrumental invention- the air drums, and Aviva Endean’s bass and contrabass clarinets. Working with subtle shifts in harmonics, beating tones and breath, these artists work with their unusual instruments to occupy a shared sonic space.

Panda Wong & Hannah Wu

A live performance drawing upon writer Panda Wong’s recent collaborative poetry EP, ‘salmon cannon me into the abyss’. Dedicated to Panda’s dead father, the EP creates its own landscape of loss through found sounds, voice processing and spoken fragments. A performance that is as much about friendship as loss, Panda is joined by writer and musician Hannah Wu.

Rama Parwata

Through experiments in electronic augmentation of percussive sonorities, Rama Parwata will be further exploring the abstracted potentialities of drum-set performance through computer processing, accompanied by a unique suite of guided improvisations.

About New North

New North is a platform for Narrm/Melbourne-based musicians who push boundaries in their areas of practice. We empower artists and audiences to try the untried, experience the new, and expand conceptions of the possibilities of sound. New North is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and the City of Moreland.

New North is presented in partnership with Next Wave at Brunswick Mechanics Institute, a centre for performing arts situated on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to all First Nations people and their Elders, and, past, present and emerging.
