Vitrine is thrilled to welcome Brisbane-based installation and sound artist Ross Manning to its roster. Laminal, scrapping and what could be the cry of a child. Home-made instruments and location-hewn ambience develop a nuanced sculptural sound. Psychic whimsy and the sensuality of the object exonerate household ticking and churning. The everyday as ecstatic as it always has been. Natural Causes follows a recent banner run of releases by Manning, including 2015’s Interlacing LP, the Delicate Shades of Hell cs on sterling tape imprint Greedy Ventilator and LED, an outstanding 10” of new works self-released by the artist earlier this year. Chimes cut to dour electronic warble. A standard bearer of contrast and sonorous multitude. Clang, clatter and debris swarm in plumes of activity. Adam Bohman’s object improv or Joe Jone’s solar music are signposts along the way to a unique hemisphere of absurd inevitability. Bells vibrate above whipping crescents of machinery. Persistent creaking stumbles in a textured cluster. Irregular romance. Excerpts from Le Couperet, arriving thirty years too late. Natural Causes is the latest entry in what is fast becoming one of the most singular bodies of work in contemporary sound.
