''Akiyama specializes in creating music with elements of both primitivism and realism by connecting his own aspirations, in a minimal and straightforward way, to the special instrumental qualities of the guitar. Sometimes delicately and sometimes boldly, he controls sound volumes ranging from micro to macro, in an attempt to convert the body into an electronic entity.''
CANDLESNUFFER / SEAN BAXTER w/ special guest
''The reprise of a long distance collaboration of long standing, this trio first performed in the mid nineties and has only been able to perform in Australia very rarely over the ensuing years. Comprising 3 innovators in the fields of free improvisation, modern concrete, and brutal, abstracted noise, THz (as they have been called) create an uncompromisingly visceral experience in contemporary sonic possibilities.''
''Candied Limbs is the free improv duo of Lindsay Vickery on reeds and computer processing and Cat Hope on noise bass and vocals. Non idiomatic improv bordering noise and avant jazz.''
SHIT TO THE SPIRIT
''Erkki Veltheim dusts off the gas mask and resurrects the violin of apocalypse in a one-man meta-metal band.''
“Cured Pink is a discomposed mess of underdeveloped ideas, glorifying civil sickness before finding anything that actually sounds good. Self-releasing hand-made material out of Brisbane for the last few years, the mess, usually summed as ''psychotic performance art'', ''post-industrial noise bliss'' or ''bored at 3am'', appears to have its strengths in the alienation of pub owners, the forcing of early closures and alienation of most band members. Maybe it is just irritating”.
(Lloyd Honeybrook / Fucked) - ''Hitting it to you in the most eloquent manner. Has collaborated in the past with DJ Kevorkian. What good is a DJ who absolutely hates music??''
