Soundscape interludes by Matthew Syres


Mike Nigro
Mike Nigro is an electronic musician and label operator newly based in Sydney, Australia (previously Brooklyn, NY). His solo practice & collaborations draw inspiration from the minimalists, early synthesizer pioneers, and contemporary experimental underground. His work aims to thread the needle between musicality and noise; movement and stasis; synthetics and organics.

Silent Towns
Silent Towns is a collaborative project led by poet Peter Roads featuring Kieran Warner-Hunt (Patches) on modular synth.

Mark Oliveiro
Live real time sound and visual manipulation featuring Lady Electric and Emily Granger- Harpist.

Hitmonberg x Hitmonvan
Hypnotic improvised drums and synth

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.
