Will Guthrie and Quakebasket

Will Guthrie is a brilliant musician. Capable of working in any genre, Will has recently revisited his native Melbourne, with performances and workshops at venues including the Make It Up Club – which Guthrie himself helped found some 16 years ago – and Monash University. A drummer and percussionist and dabbler in electronics, Will’s solo works are feats of skill and stamina, with time suspended.

Contact was fortunate to host Will Guthrie in the PBS studios for a wide-ranging chat. Tune in to hear Will discuss his current interests, his projects with Helmut Schäfer and Thymolphthalein, the relocation to France, and the development of Melbourne’s premier improvisation club… and, of course, hear the music to match.

Guthrie has been added to the Quakebasket roster, the label recently resuscitated by Tim Barnes. Barnes is a percussionist and composer, noted for his work with Text of Light, Sonic Youth, John Zorn and many, many others. A great complement to Guthrie's sounds, we’ll also feature some fantastic music from Barnes and Quakebasket (Glenn Kotche, Alan Licht and Coppice).

Contact, Monday April 28 on PBS. Broadcast from 2am AEST, streamed worldwide, available via the PBS apps, and preserved as PBS audio archives for your later listening pleasure.
