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.
Forenzics are embarking on our first ever interstate tour in support of this, our fourth studio album, entitled ‘Malign‘, playing 1/4 Inch at Rad Bar in Wollongong on the 3rd March, The Record Crate in Glebe on the 6th March and Make It Up Club at Bar Open in Melbourne on the 10th March.
We’ll be playing with a slightly improvised line-up at each venue but with stalwarts Dirk Kruithof and Matthew Syres on guitars, coupled with Shahane Bekarian’s (RedCell Disorder’s) signature large scale projections, each is sure to be a uniquely stunning, cinematic, synaesthetic journey down the rabbit warren.

Forenzics will be in full quartet mode with Dirk Kruithof and myself on guitar, Joe Cummins on trumpet, and Evan McGregor on drums, for the full soundscape, noise, post rock, post jazz experience.
RedCell Disorder will be playing his trademark improvised visuals throughout the night, for the full synesthetic effect.
We’ll take you on a dark, noir-ish journey of sound and vision, with our sonic instincts and improvisation styles transforming post-rock, noise, jazz and electronic influences into an absolutely unique and engaging live experience. All enhanced by the intense yet atmospheric large scale live projections courtesy of RedCell Disorder.
