Laurel Halo, Oren Ambarchi and Grouper will also play the three-day festival in August.
The Arts Centre Melbourne will host Supersense, a three-day music and arts festival, from August 7th through 9th.
The new three-day event will feature a diverse range of music, film, art, dance and performance presented in and around the Arts Centre's various venues. Among those on the electronic tip, E2-E4 composer Manuel Göttsching will appear in Australia for the first time to perform a 'greatest hits' showcase. The German artist will also be involved in a concert dedicated to the music of his krautrock band Ash Ra Tempel. There, Göttsching will share the stage with Ariel Pink and Australian experimentalist Oren Ambarchi, both of whom will also be playing solo shows as part of the festival.
Also included on the programme are a number of collaborative pieces. The Necks, Leo Abrahams, David Coulter and more will come together for a live reinterpretation of Brian Eno's celebrated 1975 album, Discreet Music. Laurel Halo and Dead Can Dance member Lisa Gerrard will join iconic Welsh composer John Cale for Signal To Noise, a new experimental A/V work commissioned for Supersense. Ambient folk artist Grouper will team up with American filmmaker Paul Clipson for "Hypnosis Display", while local duo HTRK will soundtrack a performance by contemporary dance company Chunky Move.
Full details on Supersense, including the complete lineup and timetable, are available on the Arts Centre Melbourne website.
