Sawfish 623
A Sydney based dark ambient, doom, improvised and experimental duo featuring Matthew Syres on guitars and David Lawford on electronics.

Derived from the French word 'trier' or to sort. Starting with a random assortment of subjective moods, this trio of vibraphone, flute and drums/percussion/electronics move between form and aether, sometimes embellished by the words of flautist Ben Hingley. 
Drummer Rich D'Addona and vibraphonist David Thomas Smith continue their 20 year collaboration with a free jazz trio that is hypnotic, suspenseful and a rest-stop from the intensity of the chaotic canvas that is life.

Walking the line between ambient, noise and drone music, Subespai paints experimental soundscapes by mixing acoustic and electronic audio sources with effect pedals, field recordings and other gadgets.

Leon Pateman/Dirk Kruithof
Guitar and Drum experimental improvising duo featuring members ofForenzics, Roschach Climax Ensemble, My Sauce Good and Waiting for Guinness(official). Prepared guitar and unorthodox playing techniques combine with free jazz, effects, and fire.

Projectionist extraordinaire for the legendary Scattered Order.

Matthew Syres
Founding member of Sydney group Forenzics, Matthew has an eccentric and unusual approach to the guitar, using multiple effects, delays and looping to build complex improvised sonic textures informed by noise, post-rock, industrial and soundscape music.
