What’s been described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is in fact the work of Justice Yeldham, a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. His infamous show, one of the most unique in the world has astonished and bemused countless people in over 40 countries. Ecstatically pursing his lips against the glass’ sharp edges, whilst deftly employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries he turns discarded shards of glass into crude musical instruments. Resulting in a wild array of cacophonous sonics that are strangely controlled and oddly musical. The instruments simple, original and effective premise is a welcome riposte to over complicated musical performances of modern times. A one of a kind act re-defining the expression “don’t try this at home” this show quite simply needs to be witnessed to be fully appreciated, let alone understood.
Justice Yeldham appears on ‘New Weird Australia, Volume Five’.
