Things get pretty noisy in Sydney - this is in itself interesting as it is quite problematic to play at volume due to excessive noise restrictions and often underground venues. One answer to the issue is to take it outside, play briefly and return things to how they were. This is Kusum’s ScreamAMP. The work sees her carting guitar amps around Melbourne and setting up in various environs, before unleashing her extreme vocals on an un-expecting audience.
Tactically, numerous noise music practitioners find ways to perform at heart thumping volume about the city, below are three tracks at the noisy end of recent recordings from Sydney, turn them up if you can.
Kusum plays at ISSUE on the 7th April with LoVid and Marina Rosenfeld
