Line-up /Bee Mask, Rites Wild, Secret Birds
Bee Mask is USA based musician Chris Madak.
Over the past couple of years he has emerged for the DIY underground via an esoteric collection of cassette and LP editions, each of which offers a profound and personal sonic world: a world littered with pulsing waves, control voltage emissions and haunting melodic phrases that echo in the mind like forgotten dreams. Developing a range of hand-made electronic devices, Bee Mask has been able to create an otherworldly sound that is entirely his own. It’s an audio vision of a possible future, or a parallel universe, in which the very nature of sound, space and time is bent, re-arranged and re-composed with utterly absorbing results.
For his debut Australian performance, Bee Mask is joined by Brisbane's finest vision psych kraut experimentalists Secret Birds and the downtempo casio beats, minimalist synth drone and spaced out vocals of Adelaide’s Rites Wild (Stacey Wilson).
“Bee Mask, produces medium specific, high-calibre synthesised compositions with mind-altering intent, beyond the scope of what one might “check out” to while having their tarot cards read”.
