EMBRACE YOUR INNER CRAP DAD
A recently divorced sound artist dad gorges on new lows in parenting, human engagement and generally being crap.
‘The audience followed Scatterman as he talked to himself, gesticulating and staggering around a couch or playing a prepared piano while opening one beer can after another. Uncouth antics were contrasted by candid images of his family’. Le Scatterman addresses ‘the self-defeating idea of seeking the perfect life: the perfect husband, mother, child, society or artist’. Cool Perth Nights.
Part solo concert (prepared piano/guitar/voice/synthesisers), part commedia dell’arte: Le Scatterman features unruly flashes of stand-up comedy, and a twist of performance art, delivered by Australia’s recalcitrant sound artist James Hullick.
Recently, Le Scatterman has been adapted into episodes on radio for PBS 106.7FM airing Sundays 10pm, 8–29 November on The Sound Barrier show, presented by Ian Parsons.
