EXPERIMENTAL music will be offered by the Perth Improv Collective tomorrow at the Zig Zag Gallery in Kalamunda.

Starting at 3pm the performances will feature musicians Michael Terren, Sam Gillies and L.S. Rosenberg, Josten Myburgh and Behn Stacy and provide an eclectic range of sounds.

The music has been collaborated around the art of Ronan Lane, an artist who was born in Ireland and now spends his time between Perth and Berlin.

Michael Terren works with digital sound synthesis and field recordings in live performance, studio works and installations. He has released two CDs which feature his investigative digital sound media practices.

Sam Gillies is a composer and sound whose work treads the line between the musically beautiful and ugly, embracing live performance, multimedia and installation art forms to create alternating sound worlds of extreme fragility and overwhelming density.

L S Rosenberg is a Jewish queer eternal novice.

Her bass clarinet playing revolves around concepts of meditation, chanting and traditional Klezmer music.

She seeks to explore harmony and space, while allowing the audience to witness her continually growing understanding of her instrument, with its failures and successes.

Saxophonist Josten Myburgh performs improvised solo works using sound alongside dance/movement and text and in ensembles in free jazz and improvised music contexts.

Behn Stacy is a drummer and noise artist, currently a member of the experimental instrumental post-rock quartet Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving, and a number of other improvisation trios and also performs as a solo artist. He likes free jazz, punk, beats and noise music.

WAAPA graduate Jameson Feakes is a Sydney born, Perth dwelling guitarist specialising in experimental and modern classical music.

He likes to explore the guitar as an instrument that blurs the lines between contemporary and experimental music.
