aa cell - live code sound explosions
aa-cell are the live coding duo of Andrew Sorensen and Andrew Brown. Since the mid 2000s they have been using the forces of algorithmic process and software coding for live electronic music performances around Australia and in Europe and, when pressed, they code generative visual images as well. aa-cell produce a blend of experimental and electronic sonic goodness as they take laptop, as instrument, to the edge.
Botborg - Sheer hellish audio visual virtuosity
Botborg present extreme electronic sound and video manipulation informed by fringe science and esoteric cultural theories. These completely improvised demonstrations explore the boundary at which pure noise becomes pure signal and have been described with terms as varied as 'cannibalistic orgies' and 'transcendental'. Botborg has performed in over 15 countries over the past 8 years.
Timothy Tate - elegant tape deconstructions
Timothy Tate is a Brisbane based composer, conductor and performer. He holds a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Composition and his works have been performed regularly throughout Australia and abroad. Whilst actively composing, Timothy presents performances and installations incorporating a hybrid of viola, ¼ inch magnetic tape and modular synthesisers creating spontaneous and multilayered situations which encompass the architecture of the performance space.
N4rgh1l3 - rendered audio visual landscapes
N4rgh1l3 is an Audio-Visual project by Andrew Thomson and Lloyd Barrett, artists with over a decade experience in the Brisbane experimental music scene. Dissatisfied with bland laptop performance, N4rh1l3 approach ambient sound and image with a view towards emulating and inducing hypnagogic states. Inspired by the visual music of Jordan Belson, Len Lye and Stan Brakhage, they edge away from a digital aesthetic through the dense layering of both generated, and captured sound and image.
