Alex Smoke Live presented by Techno Tuesday & [THE BOX] photo gallery
All Eyes On Who?
Having previously organised intimate events featuring artists such as Pig&Dan, Efdemin, Cesare & Disorder, Deepchild, Emerson Todd and Kevin Griffiths, [THE BOX] and Techno Tuesday are delighted to present ALEX SMOKE in a live intimate performance at One22. The rightfully revered Glaswegian proponent of all things dark, druggy experimental and minimal returns to Sydney on Saturday July 14.
Stating the bleeding obvious, this should be a ripsnorter of a night. Smoke has released a number of critically acclaimed artist albums on the canonical Soma imprint, namely Incommunicado and Paradolia, and couple of stonking EPs on Vakant, along with a varied collection of remixes for outfits including Depeche Mode, Junior Boys and Andre Kraml. The classically trained musician released his debut mix compilation back in 2006 with Sci.Fi.Hi.Fi Vol. 3, following on from the efforts of Ewan Pearson and Luciano with a brooding voyage through dub techno, classic Detroit and new-wave minimalism. His most recent album, Lux, was released a couple of years back, adding another accomplished assortment of experimental wonky techno to his celebrated back catalogue.
Last year Smoke continued to break new ground by composing a semi-classical score for FW Murnau’s seminal 1926 silent film Faust, which was performed by Scottish Ensemble and premiered at the 2011 Glasgow Film Festival. “I think anyone that is truly making music for the sake of making music, is going to want to push at their own boundaries, and to explore new sonic territory,” Smoke told Pulse Radio recently. “If you just re-tread the same ground continuously, you're going to get bored and stale and end up just going through the motions.”
We can’t think of anything better than having Alex Smoke play a dark, intimate club with a stonking sound set-up and know many of you feel the same. This is going to be a hell of a party! Alex will be ably supported by locals TRINITY, GLITCH and JAY SMALLS.
