Roll on Autumn, and bring on the April edition of Electundra. April’s line up features the audio work of Karli White, Makeda and Corin, with visuals by Horse MacGyver.
Here are some superb reasons why you should come down.
1) Makeda is interested in health, bass and crystal glasses.
Her involvement in music began during a short oddball era of Brisbane’s music history, where she cemented her spot through the curation of bizarre music events and a 4ZZZ radio show that championed marginalised music.
Over the ecstatic London summer of 2014, she discovered more about her Caribbean roots alongside a developing interest in Jungle, UK Garage and its narrative of hyper-masculine 170BPM dance floors. Upon learning of an Arabic musical-mode associated with femininity and vitality, the Maqam ‘Bayati’ appeared countless times in her demo (Jan 2015), creating an unexpected meeting of opposites-attract gender themes.
2) Karli White hints at influences of new wave, techno and R&B. She experiments by layering heavy, reverberating beats and soft vocal melodies with obscured acoustic samples.
Starting her music project in Perth in 2013, Karli launched her first songs on Soundcloud, from her bedroom. She relocated to Melbourne in 2014, where she released her debut full length, Karli White’s Childhood Scissors, and composed a short film soundtrack, released on Comfort Cassettes.
3) CORIN is the solo project of Australian producer Corin Ileto. Coming from a background as a classically trained pianist, the keyboard is a central focus of her music with a heavy emphasis on live processing. Influences range from the techno pop melodicism of Ryuichi Sakamoto to the cinematic futurism of Vangelis.
4) Timothy Dwyer, better known by his stage name Horse Macgyver (and formerly by the stylized moniker ///???\\\), is an Australian artist and electronic musician from Canberra. He will be on VJ duties for the evening, making sick visual art for you your eyeballs.
Electundra was first conceived in 2003 by Kent Macpherson and Loop Project Space and Bar and has featured some of the most original and challenging audio-visual performances from Melbourne’s underground roots over the past decade. This Thursday is no exception. We pair innovative musicians with stunning visual artists- brought to you through the aural channels of our lush, brand new Void sound system and our large format, custom built screens.
