PERFORMANCES: To be announced
Every year since 2014 Blindside has invited Liquid Architecture to organise an exhibition under the banner ‘Sound Series’ by artists working in experimental ways with sound and listening. Following incredible shows by Anthony Riddell, Felicia Atkinson, and Gerard Crewdson, among others, we’re proud to announce that the 2019 Sound Series will be a first ever solo exhibition by artist and musician Matt Earle.
Matt is a legendary figure in Australian experimental music circles, known for his bands (including Stasis Duo, xnobbqx, Club Sound Witches), his founding of hotbed communal noise spaces (like Real Bad Music and Life Groove), and for his bewitchingly-unclassifiable label imprint Breakdance the Dawn that has released hundreds of cassettes by Australian artists all packaged in Matt’s signature black-and-white photocopied style.
Although Matt is most known (although not well known) for his music, we consider his work as a total aesthetic encompassing visual as well as sonic and other terrains. We’re excited to see and hear what he does with an exhibition.
To help usher the show into being, and to keep up comms with Matt - who lives with his partner artist and musician Nicola Morton, off-grid in Hunter Valley, NSW - we’ve invited Melbourne underground music personality Patrick O’Brien to take on the responsibility as guest curator. Pat has championed Mat’s music over many years through his radio show O’Tomorrow on Triple R and his various underground record stores (Sunshine and Grease, AG Picks). Thanks to Patrick and Matt for taking this on.
Matt Earle: Breakdancethedawn is an exhibition curated by Pat O'Brien, presented by Liquid Architecture and BLINDSIDE as part of the Sound Series
Sound Series is supported by City of Melbourne.
