Bio to follow.
Automating is Sasha from Melbourne, Australia. Sifting through the sonic waste and discarded technology left by the roadside of a world speeding too fast into the future. Field recordings, found sound, tape manipulation, noise and effects units. Currently pursuing live and studio created binaural soundscapes and archaic tape based drones.
Marcia Jane is a video artist who endeavors to make connections between time, place and experience. Working with video projections and using rhythmic emissions of light, she investigates surface, space and frequency. Marcia is interested in the similarities and differences in ways we perceive sound and vision and often works in conjunction with sound artists to explore this. Marcia graduated from RMIT with Honours in Fine Art (Media Arts) in 2008 and has performed live at The NOW Now Festival (Blue Mountains, NSW), Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane, QLD) and exhibited installations at VCA Gallery and West Space in Melbourne. Her single–channel video works have screened at Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne International Film Festival and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Marcia Jane currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
Building on his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Multimedia, Netzair has spent years experimenting, shooting and producing his own unique content. Crosscutting live, graphic compositions to sync, his style allows you to see beyond a reel of pleasant images - you see the music. Striving to make the night's audio entertainment tangible, bringing sound to life, the visual experience is especially suited to an electronic environment where bass, glitch and snare can be translated optically. With a passion for live performance, it's not uncommon to see Netzair pushing out vision for ten or more hours straight, on festival stages alongside International and local Dj's, as well as club nights and community based video art events.
Easily one of Melbourne's most exciting DJ/producers to emerge on the Australian scene. With almost 10 years of DJ experience under his belt, playing in live groups (The Red-Eyes and now Affiks & A13) and smashing the clubs on the regular; A13 has been responsible for introducing Melbourne to the dubstep, future beats and glitch-hop sounds that have spawned from underground studios all over the globe. Acknowledging his affinity almost instantly, he has since started creating his own tracks and playing DJ sets at the popular monthly club nights Heavy Innit!!, Wobble, Too Much and other future music events. Recently supporting some of his favourite artists and key players such as 16Bit (UK), Joker (UK), The Bug (UK), Harmonic313 (UK), Starkey (USA), Truth (NZ), Dexterous (The Others-UK), Joe Nice (USA), Emalkay (UK), 6 Blocc (USA), Curse of the Machines (AUS), Goth Trad (JAP), Nero(UK), 2562(NTL), GrillaStep(AUS), Mista Savona(AUS), Dub Syndicate (JAMAICA) and Mad Professor (UK). With bookings coming at him left, right and centre, it seems that the late nights aren't going to end anytime soon.
Hailing from the wastelands of Bacchus Marsh, Xian's unique grafting of juxtaposing genres is his claim to infamy, from grindcore to crack house, dubstep to greasy R&B and anything it takes to get your booty shakin. Solid kick drums and crisp snares puncture the orchestral ambience in a shit storm of hard hitting electro-step and dirty drum & bass. Muddled with just the right amount of sleaze and shrapnel from a dirty dirty pop culture. Supporting the likes of Clark (UK) U-zique (UK) Evol Intent (USA) Exile (UK) Enduser (USA) Goth Trad (JAP) Richard Divine (USA) to name a few. With local releases on System Corrupt and Black Lotus, internationally on Omeko (JAP) Wrong Music (UK) Acidsmover (RU) and BRK (FR) to airplay from TripleJ, Shibuya FM (JAP) and PBSFM, you will regret not bringing two pairs of dancing shoes.
The DJ MisconceptIan began Dj'ing in 2002 and was a regular at experimental music night Uncomfort at Pony for around 4 years. Soon afterwards he started a monthly night called Teratology which celebrated fringe and experimental electronic music such as breakcore, IDM, noise and other strange eccentricities. MisconceptIan always pushes the boundaries of what is safe and healthy to consume aurally, he returns to the stage after an extended hiatus to destroy conceptions and attitudes of what electronic music should be and how it should be mashed together.
