Echoplay - An Evening of Underground Sounds
Fri 21st Oct 19:30
Venue with limited accessibility
Echoplay – an evening of underground sounds across two stages from 19:30 - 1:30, featuring contemporary artists from across so-called Australia: Marcus Whale, Workhorse, Hantu, Perfect Actress, Troth and Big Echo.
Marcus Whale is a musician and performer working on Gadigal land (Sydney), a member of groups Collarbones and BV. His second album, Lucifer, mines the grand drama of good and evil from Catholicism to make a case for Lucifer, the brightest and most beautiful angel, as a light for those forsaken by God.
Workhorse is the western-tinged, dream-pop project of Kaurna land/Adelaide singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Harriet Fraser-Barbour. They recently released their debut album 'No Photographs' through Dinosaur City Records and return to NSW for the first time in years to launch the new album.
Hantu is the debut solo project from ethnomusicologist, multi-instrumentalist and member of Melbourne/Naarm post-punk quartet Hexdebt, Isobel D'Cruz. Her first release, 'Zither EP', is built on kinetic field recordings and itinerant zither motifs. D'Cruz augments the soundscape with bass and flute, as well as additional production and instrumentation from Zachary Schneider (Collected Dust).
Sydney-based post-punk outfit Perfect Actress feature members form a slew of underground bands, including California Girls, and play textural yet taut springy new wave.
Troth is Awabakal/Newcastle based ambient, experimental, synth pop duo Amelia Besseny and Cooper Bowman (Altered States Tapes). "Together they fashion ethereal environs from vocals, electronics, zither, tape loops and sampled percussion & piano." - Essential Minerals.
Big Echo is a new project featuring members from post-punk and new wave outfits Nylex, Zipper, Wireheads and Rule of Thirds, with shining guitar and synth over driving bass and saxophone.
