Saturday 17th December, 2.30pm
Memo Music Hall, 88 Acland Street, St. Kilda

The Melbourne Drone Orchestra returns on December 17th to push the limits of the electric guitar and subsume audiences with a blanket of frequencies. For the first time, the MDO will be joined at Memo Hall in St Kilda by two of Australia’s best and most intense drummers from within the world of extreme metal and improvised experimental music.

Matt ‘Skitz’ Sanders made his mark over twenty five years ago with iconic metal band Damaged, inspiring bands around the world to this day with his trademark mechanical precision and uncompromisingly violent approach to the drums. In recent years, he has performed with Gravetemple, featuring Stephen O’Malley, Oren Ambarchi and Attila Csihar of Sunn O))), and some of Australia’s best current extreme metal acts.

Brian O’Dwyer will be squaring off against him with an arsenal of skills drawn from his eclectic performance background. Working tirelessly for Melbourne musicians with his imprint Bleeemo music, Brian has participated in everything from grindcore to world music Having worked with extended playing previously, Brian’s approach to drumming infuses jazz-infused dexterity with the warp-drive intensity of grindcore.

Do not miss this one off opportunity to witness these two respected drummers spar in the ring of decibels that is the Melbourne Drone Orchestra!

The Melbourne Drone Orchestra is a unique assemblage of musicians who aim to create a sonic experience unlike anything else. Influenced by Fripp, Sunn 0))) and Earth’s pioneering use of the guitar, past performances have seen up to eighteen guitarists create a sonic monoliths.

All participants abide by three conditions; all guitars are tuned to DADGAD; only six-string guitars (no bass guitars!); and no shredding.
