We're back in October with an extended Friday edition of VOLTA (at Nevermind Fridays @ 110 Aberdeen St, Northbridge
Live electronic music created with hardware in an intimate venue. Deep rhythms, dynamic modulations, squelchy filters, undulating beats, experimental textures. See new sounds being made before your eyes. Technique and method above genre.
ALEX AND YELL
Are a duo exploring the deepest realms of synthesis. Organic, cavernous textures and emotions wrangled from a collection of controllers, analog synths and drum machines.
EXPECT: Deep tones, sparse textures, broken beats
Perth's polymorphic beat machine is truly something to behold. Armed with loop pedals and a microphone, their sets are spontaneous and unpredictable, feeling like the release of some kind of musical entity as much as composition.
EXPECT: Left field beats, abstract textures, vocal manipulation
Solo moniker of Physical Release mystic Matt Moore. Using live manipulated tape loops and effects to create lo-fi dreamscapes with minimal tech vibes.
EXPECT: Vintage equipment, tape loops, lo-fi sounds
Local percussionist & producer bringing lo-fi drum heavy techno, acid & disconnected ambient on 909 drums, analogue synths & FX.
EXPECT: Hypnotic rhythms and experimental textures.
DR HARD BUTTER
Has been staying the right side up of Perth’s dance scene with their deep acidic tech. Live squelchy, psychedelic bass lines recalling the heyday of early acid house and tech classics. Influences include Underworld and Richie Hawtin.
EXPECT: Squelchy basslines, buttery textures.
Finishing off the night will be selections from VOLTA conspirator DJ TREBT to keep the late night crowd moving. Expect a selection of tracks from our favorite live electronic artists from across the world. Techno, house, minimal, acid, EBM, and experimental. Stick around to have a few drinks and dance with us in NMSC’s cosy open air beer garden.
