An interview promoting our Melbourne Fringe performances of 2009. We do a demo of how we set up our portable gear when infiltrating office building lifts.
New Weird Australia, FBI Radio (2009)
While in Sydney we were interviewed by Stu Buchanan on the FBI Radio show New Weird Australia (also a really cool label). We played “Lunchtime Meditation Session” live on the radio and submitted a version of the track for one of their compilations.
Linda Kouvaras, Loading the Silence (2013)
We were honoured to have several pages devoted to Random Acts of Elevator Music in this amazing book by musician and academic Linda Kouravas. Her book Loading the Silence: Australian Sound Art in the Post-Digital Age is a fantastic study of experimental music in Australia. Although her focus is the “post-digital” age, there is some excellent discussion of John Cage and Percy Grainger in here. One interesting aspect is the idea of the “altermodern”, which Kouvaras proposes has emerged following on from the post-modern era.
Cyclic Defrost (2017)
Review of the Random Acts of Elevator Music album on Cyclic Defrost, written by Chris Downton.
