Klaus Bass
Solo live electronic artist Klaus Bass released "Como,Como" in late 2016 online and in cassette format. Since moving to Sydney from Perth in 2017 he's focused on performing throughout the city, playing hard beats, writing and recording a second, stronger and more intense LP.

Towel are pianist extraordinaire Towel are pianist extraordinaire Zoe Gallagher-Avery and 6 string bass lunatic Josh Shipton. They will not be playing piano or bass. Instead, an adventure through fear and nursery rhymes, glockenspiels, theremins, screams.

Nick Wishart (Nik Nak)
Nick Wishart is a composer/musician/sound artist who uses electronics and circuit bending to create 'bent'struments, as featured in the bandToydeath. His current obsession is the creation of movement activated 'gestural' instruments for physical performers.

Solo improvised ambient textures. Utilising a mix of cassette machines and tape loops, guitar, synth and sounds. Droned and dreamy, layered and looped.

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. Here he plays an optical theremin, open jack and contact mic to create more subtle soundscapes to keep the weirdness going between sets.
