New show VA opening at Utopian Slumps this weeked sees eclectic ethnographer, musician and found object magpie Dylan Martorell as curator/in house DJ selecting some of his favourite artists and making a brilliant mixed tape that waxes lyrical on the nexus between music and art.
Given my love of the 'blended' genre from Sun Ra to the New York Dolls this one is clearly a no brainer for me, and I'll be there with the music loving sling widget come Saturday lunchtime. The other major attraction lies in VA's killer line up: Marco Fusinato, Michael Graeve, Tarquin Manek, Dylan Martorell, Victor Meertens that's some serious melbourne experimental art/rock/jazz/world/improv talent people. Expect excellent soundscaping alongside works spanning emmersive photography through exploded vinyl to baked bread. Sounds good to me. BECK
