Opening Friday February 27, 6 – 8pm

Martorell is a Melbourne based artist who’s work examines biological form and
its applications to the creation of sound based drawings and sculpture,
influenced by his work as a musician (Snawklor, The Hi God People).

Martorell’s process based methodology uses the gallery as a combination of
workshop and social meeting space where the gallery area is used as the basis
for a variety of improvised collaborations and performances.

Using the concept of transforming plant algorithms into musical scores, ‘Stolon
Tonals’ inhabits an imagined musical Diaspora where the rhythms and structures
of nature give form to a series of architectural models, sound works, costumes,
prints and drawings.

This is Dylan Martorell’s first solo show in Sydney.
He has previously shown internationally in both solo and group shows, in London
and New York.

Revolutionary Publishing in an Age of Crisis.
Ramsey Kanaan, founder of the successful workers controlled publishing houses AK Press and PM Press will be speaking at Jura. He will talk about the trials and tribulations of making media in a time when media is taking a massive beating (in all formats), when funding is drying up, and social movements seem to be stagnating. He will argue that it’s more vital now than ever. He’ll also speak about the set up, aims and structures of workers controlled publishing.

Bohemian Grove
L2/68 Sophia St, Surry Hills
6.30 $10 all ages

*SNAP* is a new saxophone quartet, bringing together ideas from jazz and New
Music. New York émigré Phillip Johnston has joined with some of Sydney’s
best-loved saxophonists, Paul Cutlan, Sandy Evans and Nick Bowd, to begin
what they hope to be a long-lived chamber group championing new jazz and
classical saxophone quartet music. So far it features original compositions
by Sandy, Paul, and Phillip, as well as both Australian and American
composers from outside the group.

John Shand, in the *Sydney Morning Herald*, described their appearance at
the 2007 Jazz: Now Festival at the Sydney Opera House as, “*creating
sonorities from the Ellingtonian to the spiky*,” and music writer John Clare
called them “*full of early jazz quirkiness, impressionism and modernity*…”

Their combined C.V.s include work with the Australian Art Orchestra, The
catholics, Clarion Fracture Zone, MARA!, Guy Klucevsek, Gary Lucas, The
Microscopic Septet, James Morrison, Mike Nock, ROVA, Mikel Rouse,
Sousaphonics, Art Spiegelman, Lou Reed, 10 Part Invention, Gest8, & John
Zorn. Individually, they have toured Australia, Asia, Europe, the U.S., and
Outer Space.

— Bohemian Grove performances are 6:30pm doors for a 7pm start each Sunday (unless otherwise advised). The cover is $10 / donation. Please feel free to invite your friends to come and/or join the mailing list, but we ask that nothing be posted on the web for the authorities to find (they are squares).
