Soundscape interludes by Matthew Syres


Ambient, atmospheric, tape loop based project from Joshua McBeath. A sonic journey through soundscapes/dreamscapes of bliss, desire, nostalgia, longing, and calm.

Hirofumi Uchino, a futuristic Dr Frankenstien, is the evil mastermind and father of the machines used in Defektro. The sound is produced by the machines, sampled, effected chewed up and spat out much to the pleasure of the audience.

The solo project of Peter Hollo, cellist in Tangents (Temporary Residence), FourPlay String Quartet, with Sophie Hutchings and many others. With raven, the cello is looped and processed through pedals, building basslines, percussion, scratchy noises and melodies from the cello into beautiful and unusual sonic structures.

Fifty-Seven Harvests Left
Fifty-Seven Harvests Left will soon be Fifty-Six Harvests Left. In the interim, they are best described with a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote: "The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization." Bass, keyboards and electronics create instrumental, improvised, experimental music with hip-hop leanings.

LIVING SCIENCE Dept. (Colum Skeleton)
Projectionist extraordinaire for the legendary Scattered Order.

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.
