This Saturday KNOWLEDGE welcomes DJ & Producer –
** JOOLS ** !!
Off the back of his first EP with Little Rascal Records we get the low down on his throw down.
* Who are some of your favourite artists and what can we expect to hear this
I have a few artists that come to mind. S.P.Y., Serum, Calibre, Dom and Roland, Need For Mirrors, and there are a lot more artists to mention who have influenced me growing up.
This Saturday I have some Jungle classics to play… with some new tunes thrown in the mix, including some of my own production!
*What are some of the highlights of your DJ career so far?*
I have played for a few various nights around Perth, including Liquid Lounge and Culture Clash. I have had the opportunity to play along side Perth’s amazing local talent. I have also been offered a set at BAY-SS festival in March which I am really looking forward to playing!
*Can you tell us a little about the tracks you have been producing, and about the record label you have released on?*
I have always liked dark basslines and synths, as well as heavy amens, so I have tried to bring to my music Jungle flavours with a lot of heavy breakbeats and dark atmospheres. I released my debut EP with Little Rascal Records in August last year, and I have my second EP with the same label due late March.
*Who are your two chosen support DJ’s and why have you chosen them?*
I have chosen two mates, Dj Size and Execute. Apart from being awesome people, they both encompass my musical taste. Dj Size with his dark, deep, minimal style and Execute with his Jungle riddims.
Buy tickets | RSVP on Facebook RTRFM’s local music festival Distant Murmurs returns to The Rosemount …
There is a great free event coming up called ‘Groat Street Festival’ on the 25th October, I guess its a bit like Hulbert St was for Freo.
Faerie Cara (Eco Faeries) has worked hard for a few years with our community to create an annual northern suburbs Community Run Festival and this year we have got it right. Great venue, 4 stages of entertainment, kids entertainment and well rounded appeal.
You can see the workshops and timetables alone are a great opportunity but there is also 40 plus stalls, sustainability, up-cycling, craft, community gardens and transition towns, food, and kids fun.
It will be a great ‘old fashion’ community event the way town fairs used to be.
We would love you to come along, share the poster wide and spread the news, or if you are able volunteer some time to help it run smoothly.
There are many roles of varying levels of knowledge required, something for everyone.

Opening Thursday, October 6, 2011, 7 p.m.
John Aslanidis [AUS], Malerei / Painting + Brian May [GB], Toninstallation / Soundinstallation
dr. julius | ap is pleased to announce a cooperation of Australian painter John Aslanidis and Berlin-based British musician Brian May. This will be the first vision + sound installation ever in the gallery of the New Concrete. The exhibition will comprise of a large painting, Sonic Network No.9, constructed of four panels measuring 244 cm in height by 304 cm in length, and a generative sound piece, which will be a response to the painting.
In the sonic network paintings John Aslanidis uses a set of mathematical intervals, which are relative to a grid on each of the four canvases. The drawing he derives these intervals from is akin to a “musical score”. This is a drawing of compositional intervals, which Aslanidis has used in composing the sonic network series.
It is from these compositional points that Brian May has written an algorithm which determines the characteristics and timing of the tones in relation to the points as conceived in the sound piece. The sine wave tones created are audio representations of circular forms.
Brian May’s sound piece will be using the programming language for sound synthesis SuperCollider to compose, produce and play the piece, which will be played in conjunction with the painting from a computer through a sound system for the duration of the exhibition.
The sound piece is generative and infinite, with no fixed start or end point in the composition. This correlates with the idea of infinity, a basic element of the sonic network series.
Consequently, the interaction between the sound piece, the painting and the observer will always be different, as the painting perpetually shifts upon being viewed and the sound piece emanating from SuperCollider mirrors this.
The intention of the sound piece is to create an equivalent of the reverberating patterns and geometric shapes, resembling the patterns in the painting. In addition to this the composer will be taking into consideration the structure and composition of the painting and respond to the moiré patterns – which will be represented via audio interference of the sine waves, known as beat frequencies in the sound piece.
Using SuperCollider, Brian May will be able to create sounds which correspond to colours emanating from the painting.
Order and chaos is present in both the sound piece and the painting, the resulting effect being one of synergy between analogue and digital mediums.
Brian May [born 1966 in Manchester, GB] has been producing and performing music across Australia, Japan, Europe and North America since 1990. Currently he is working as music producer and sound artist in Berlin, performing on a regular basis internationally.
The first collaboration between John Aslanidis and Brian May was in an exhibition at Austral Avenue Melbourne in 2006. In this exhibition Brian May composed a sound piece in response to Sonic Network No. 2.
John Aslanidis [* 1961 in Sydney, AUS] has a history working in the area of music and sound, having been part of Clan Analogue – a collective of sound and visual artists based in Sydney and Melbourne in the 1990s – and later being a visual artist on Zonar recordings, an electronic music label based in the late 1990s and early 2000s
In 2011, for the exhibition “Sounds Good”, curated by Claudia Calirman at Location One in New York, John Aslanidis, Katy Dove, Phoebe Hui, Sophie Hunter, Miler Lagos, John O’Connell, Gonzalo Puch, and Zane Saunders all collaborated to create a visual responses to a collaborative sound piece.
In addition to this Aslanidis participated in the exhibition “Sound and Vision” at Mc Kenzie Fine Art In New York, with Gilbert Hsiao, Daniel Hill and Laura Watt.
Aslanidis has been participating in “mehrfach -_ multiple” in December 2010, a group exhibition featuring all dr. julius | ap artists.
