LUCAS ABELA

Initially classed as a turntablist, Lucas Abela's work has rarely resembled anything in the field, early feats saw him stabb vinyl with Kruger style stylus gloves, bound on electro acoustic trampolines, drag race the pope across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, perform deaf defying duet duels with amplified samurai swords, hospitalised by high powered turntables constructed from sewing machine motors, record chance John Peel sessions with the Flaming Lips, become Otomo Yoshihides' favourite entry into his Ground Zero remix competition; 'Consummation' (even though instead of sampling the CD he destroyed it using amplified skewers!).

Today these turntable roots have became almost unrecognisable, evolving into his infamous glass instrument, the shards being nothing more than a giant diamond tipped stylus you vibrate with your mouth. He has been perfecting the instrument since it's invention in 2003, perfroming internationally as Justice Yeldham and with his glass/ drums/ piano trio, Rice Corpse and now simply as Granpa. He also founded of the irreverent dualpLOVER organisation, promoting, touring and releasing stark music from Australia and Abroad.

After a long performance career his ideas have crossed over into sound installation or more accurately building participatory instruments for musical play. works like the Vinyl Rally (RC cars raced on vinyl), Mix Tape (accessible audio tape) Pinball Pianola (Pinball/Piano hybrid) and Paku Paku (real world pacman) reflect his desire to create interactive installations in line with his philosophy that experimental music is more rewarding to play than to watch.
