EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT THE WEATHER is one-off showcase featuring four titans of the Melbourne exploratory music/avant-rock scene in a blistering, bone-shaking display from the far corners of the sonic spectrum. Oren Ambarchi (guitar/electronics), Robin Fox (laser/electronics), Marco Fusinato (guitar/electronics) & Anthony Pateras (electronics) all perform rare solo sets in a memorable night for anyone sick of talking about the weather and wanting to talk devastating sound devoid of any bullshit trend or flash in the pan cyberhype…
Make no mistake, these people are veterans: all have been promoting and performing the inquisitive end of music for over a decade in their capacities as curators of the What is Music? Articulating Space/MIBEM and You Don’t have To Call It Music. Ambarchi has collaborated with everyone from Sunn O))) to John Zorn to Jim O’Rourke, a musical chameleon commanding glaciers of low-end bliss. Fusinato’s installations and performances re-configure the senses in galleries the world over, alongside collaborating with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and the Dead C’s Bruce Russell. Fox’s infamous eye-drilling, booty-shaking laser feast has been featured in Chunky Move’s runaway success Mortal Engine, on top of his glittering international career, which sometimes includes his duo work with Pateras, a unique musical figure who is as comfortable on stage at the Sydney Opera House with an orchestra as blasting his paralytic architectures through clubs around the world. Guitars. Check. Electronics. Check. Lasers. Check. Best night out in August. Check.
