DUCKTAILS (US) - Ducktails is the musical project of Matthew Mondanile originally from Ridgewood, New Jersey. “On the other side of the globe, solo artist Ducktails approaches psychedelic music from a pop perspective. Born in Northern Jersey and a graduate of Western Massachusetts liberal arts magnet Hampshire College, Matt Mondanile constructs tropical mixed tapes from outer space. Reached by phone before a show, Mondanile described his live performances as “like making a soundtrack to a movie on the spot.”
ARTEFACT (CAMILLA HANNAN / THEMBI SODDELL / EAMON SPROD) - Over the past 10 years, Thembi Soddell, Eamon Sprod and Camilla Hannan have developed innovative approaches in sound performance and composition. By collecting field recordings in each location and incorporating them into their performances, this Melbourne show for the Artefact Tour will be a joint condensed version of what they have all gathered throughout the tour, rather than 3 separate solo performances.
TOM HALL (QLD) - Hall's eclectic works flourish by utilising a variety of mediums, each that reflect on his varied background and interests. With a strong focus on elements of the 'everyday' Hall's practice involves considered explorations into place, space and time. Drawing inspiration from countless 'peripheral' spaces, Hall focuses on using multiple approaches to engage and recontextualise them to the public.
AMBROSE CHAPEL QLD - Ambrose Chapel is a new music project by Ian Rogers (of AXXONN and No Anchor). Forged in the sweltering spare rooms of Brisbane summers, Ambrose Chapel finds Rogers exploring new sounds, production techniques and modes of performance. The results are epic in design and structure, taking the ominous bass experiments of his doom metal band No Anchor and marrying them to AXXONN’s more sophisticated and tranquil palate. His current release is a split CD with Brisbane sound artist Tom Hall titled ‘Masters of the Epic Day’.
