Soundscape interludes by Matthew Syres


John Cobbin
John Cobbin will be performing pieces that are industrial overlaid with disturbing ambience. The atmospheres were created in the studio using old school industrial samples recorded on location here and in the US in the mid 80's. Expect shades of early SPK.

Dark electro-acoustic splatter dub.

Xan Müller
Xan Müller will be playing a fully ambient set using live synthesis and repurposed samples from his recent EP, "Disconnex", which sampled the construction of the controversial WestConnex tunnel.

n000000000 is an antiband, a ongoing accident, performed with intention by Simeon Bartholomew on guitar/bass and Alex O'Toole on drums. Informed by two lifetimes spent in noise/post/prog/math rock bands (SEIMS, Meniscus, Godswounds, Captain Kickarse and the Awesomes, Violence In Action, No Mandate et al). Our desire is to create something unique, energetic, visceral, and unexpected each time we play.

Matthew Syres
Founding member of Sydney groups Forenzics and Syntax Error, 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 subtle textured soundscape interludes between sets.
