Lucky Number: the extraordinary music of Syd Clayton rediscovered by Clinton Green
On a chilly Melbourne evening in May 1968, musicians Barry McKimm and Roger Holmes arrive at the recently-established La Mama Theatre to perform a new piece of music by Syd Clayton called Yehudi. They find a note from Clayton, stuck to the theatre’s door, advising that the venue has been changed to a local billiards hall. McKimm is already familiar with Clayton’s unconventional leanings, having played alongside him and Robert Rooney in a trio that traversed the gap between jazz improvisation and indeterminacy, and was one of the first groups to compose and perform graphic scores in Australia.
The Ernie Althoff cassette archive by Clinton Green
A unique slice of Australia's experimental music history is being reissued online in the early cassette releases of Melbourne composer and instrument builder, Ernie Althoff. From 1985 to 1992, Althoff released four album-length cassettes, now all sold out. Shame File Music is progressively reissuing Althoff's cassette back catalogue and making the recordings freely available as the Ernie Althoff Cassette Archive.
