Regional Echoes: From Yabbies to Freeform Synthesis
Presented by FUSE Darebin at the Darebin Arts Center on March 16, 2023.

Free Fields is a new project exploring minimalist themes, evolving pulsations and modal meanderings using electronics, acoustic drums & often times, sampler.

Honoured to be working with Australian music legends Underground Lovers on their Moda Discoteca show. I am on drums, sampler and modular synthesiser.

Through using the current curated cabinet at the Australian Music Vault as a launch pad, Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS) co-founder Robin Fox will host a wide-ranging discussion with two exceptional artists - Nicole Skeltys (B(if)tek, clan-analogue, Artificial) and Mat Watson (Other Places, Taipan Tiger Girls, composer of Magnitudes for the MESS Synthesiser Orchestra).

This in-conversation will include a chance for a short public Q&A. Strictly limited seats are available as the talk will be inside the Australian Music Vault.

I will be premiering new music from my Pulses & Animations body of work in support of Black Cab at the Corner Hotel. My new set is a double Synthi bliss out for fans of Cluster, Laurel Speigel and Crystal Machine (by Tim Blake) . Hope to see you there!

I acknowledge the Woi Wurrung (Wurundjeri) and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations where I live and work. I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, water and community. I pay my respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
