Forenzics 'Malign' Album Launch
- Date: Tuesday, 3 March 2015, 8.15pm
- Venue: Rad Bar — 95A Crown Street, Wollongong, NSW
- Tickets: Adults: $5.00
Forenzics launch their fourth album Malign at the highly regarded 1/4 Inch: a Wollongong-based performance series devoted to experimentation in sound & the moving image. Forenzics line up will feature Matthew Syres and Dirk Kruithof on guitars, Joe Manton on electronics, and Shahane Bekarian (RedCell Disorder) on large scale improvised projections for what is sure to be a stunning, cinematic, synaesthetic journey down the rabbit warren.
Malign was recorded completely live, without overdubs, edits or preconceived music over the space of one day on the 15th June 2012 and features drummer John Wilton, whose subtle yet fiery approach lends the eight tracks of darkly sublime and textured improvisations an openness, clarity and purposefulness previously unmatched in studio recordings from the band. Where previous album Build Ruins (released via ‘New Weird Australia’ in 2011) was noisy, chaotic, electronic and dense, Malign is subtle and bewitching, spacious, otherworldly and surprisingly listenable whilst still maintaining the band’s signature dark and atmospheric sound.
Forenzics are supporting French/Cambodian musician LAFIDKI, a sound and vision artist who brings a unique sense of abstract electronics, energy and joy to his deeply experimental psychedelic noise. There will also be another local support to be announced.
