Defektro, Forenzics, Abre Ojos, Sound Object, & Demoncore to Play The Sounds Unsound #6, 24th October 2015
Dirk and I have put together an amazing lineup for this, the sixth in The Sounds Unsound presents series. It’s a massive synth vs guitars type lineup happening on Saturday 24th September 2015, Underground at Valve Bar and Venue, Agincourt Hotel, 871 George Street, Sydney, Australia, with doors at 8pm and tickets $15 on the door.
Digital/analog synth duo Demoncore will be kicking off the night at 8.30pm, followed by post-doom guitar duo Sound Object featuring yours truly from Forenzics and Pete Jones from the mighty Axis Trio, Melbourne based audio/visual maestro Abre Ojos, the usual darkly textured improvised soup of Forenzics, and saving the best till last, Defektro in all his man/machine noize interface glory. Our own visual maestro RedCell Disorder will be projecting his signature improvised textured insanity throughout the night apart from Abre Ojos’ set.
We’re also way excited to share the stage once again with Forenzics’ original drummer Ben Eadie for the first time in many, many years. Sure to be interesting.
Our new album that has been so long in the making is finally starting to see the light! We’re releasing the album on the 6th March 2015 and will be playing Sydney, Melbourne and Wollongong gigs in March to support it – see accompanying posts for more info.
In the meantime have a listen to some tracks off the album, or even pre-order your copy of the album and you’ll get immediate download of 3 tracks, with the CD or Digital Album being sent or available for download after the release date.
A little about the album…
This new album ‘Malign’ was recorded completely live, without overdubs, edits or preconceived music over the space of one day on the 15th June 2012 and features drummer John Wilton, whose subtle yet fiery approach lends the eight tracks of darkly sublime and textured improvisations an openness, clarity and purposefulness previously unmatched in studio recordings from Forenzics. Where previous album ‘Build Ruins’ (released via ‘New Weird Australia’ in 2011) was noisy, chaotic, electronic and dense, ‘Malign’ is subtle and bewitching, spacious, otherworldly and surprisingly listenable whilst still maintaining the band’s signature dark and atmospheric sound.
Forenzics will be performing in duo mode once more, this time featuring Dirk Kruithof and Matthew Syres, both on guitar. We are proud to support the enigmatic and intense Louis Burdett at this great night of out-there music kindly presented by Mondo Fondue.
Taking place at the Record Crate in Glebe, 32 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, with DJ’s kicking off proceedings at 7pm, followed by us around 8pm, Louis around 9pm.
For more details check out Mondo Fondue’s Facebook Page or RSVP and check for updates at our event page here. There’s also a good chance Louis will sit in with us for at least some of our set, the last time that happened it sounded like this… So don’t miss it – only five bucks!
Our new album Build Ruins was officially released on the 13th June 2011 on New Weird Australia‘s, New Editions Label. You can purchase the album as a limited edition CD or pay what you like digital download here.
Thanks again to Michelle Barry, William Bowden and Ryota Yamamura for helping us make such an awesome sounding record, and Stuart Buchanan for releasing it.
If you missed our intense gig with Louis Burdett a couple of weeks back, here it is in it’s entirety for your listening pleasure. Also available for free download if you just can’t live without it…
At long last you can purchase your very own copy of our brand new album Static and Silence.
