One of the most mind-blowing performances at MIUC earlier this year was The Swamp, a conceptual improvisation by Nik Kennedy featuring four grindcore vocalists utilising heavily processed voices through massive speakers. For this reprise, The Swamp is augmented by master junk percussion from Nat Grant and MV, and the grimcore cello aktions of Judith Hamann. And, a double treat from the North: No Anchor, Brisbane's finest no-core punknik's in extreme free improv mode, and the electroacoustic genius of Joe Musgrove, 1 half of internationally renowned audio-video abstraktionists, Botborg.
- The Swamp with strings and percussion, featuring: Brad Smith (vocals and electronics), Zev Langer (vocals and electronics), Leo Whitcroft (vocals and electronics), Nik Kennedy (vocals, bog sounds and electronics), Judith Hamann (cello), Maya-Victoria (percussion) and Nat Grant (percussion)
- No Anchor (BRIS), featuring: Alex Gillies (drumkit), Donovan Miller (bass) and Ian Rogers (bass)
- Joe Musgrove (BRIS) (a/v processing)
