After a lengthy hiatus Syzygy is back and better than ever, join us as we showcase a mix of experimental electronic music and visuals.
Technich and Brody X will be providing tunes to make you feel disconcertingly content as you squanch your way to oblivion in our quasi-club come installation setting.
Gracing the walls of everyone’s favourite audio-visual hotspot will be your usual mix of devilishly dark visuals of humanities decaying innocence.
Having recently come off two live shows and an installation as part of the Gertrude Street Projection Festival be sure not to miss Brody and Imogen’s live audio-visual set. With site specific tendencies influencing their practice, they’ll be exploring new territory in a new environment.
Payment will be made via donation on the night. If you like what we are providing and would like to support us feel free to pay what you choose, otherwise its on the house.
9.30 – 10.00 Brody X (live)
10.00 – 12.00 Technich

. . .
Technich’s style is influenced by his experience as a music producer, with a strong passion for sound as an art form, and a desire to express narrative through music. Each set is designed to paint a picture and encourage a journey.
He has been DJing in Melbourne for the last three years. He recently had the privilege of doing a warm up for headliner act Henry Saiz, and has supported the likes of Guy J, Eelke Kleijn, Marc Marzenit, Apparat, Ame, Guy Mantzur, DOP, Joe Brunning, and many more.
In 2016 he performed a live guest mix on Rob Zile’s Brainfood on KISS.fm
Brody started painting on the streets when he was 17 and from there grew a passion to create and explore the realm of painting outside. With the walls of Melbourne city as his canvas he works predominately in the medium of painting and more recently with the moving image, projecting video and experimenting with digital soundscapes.
Incorporating stop motion animation and live action footage, his recent video work depicts movement through space and time, playing with light and transitions shifting between the quiet and the turbulent.
In the last year his projections have been displayed The Food Court ARI, The Space Agency HQ, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Village festival and Loop project space & bar.
Brody completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Victorian Collage of the Arts in 2014, having three major group shows and his first solo show at The Food Court ARI in 2015. His second solo exhibition was at the Space Agency HQ in 2016, where he produced several site-specific installations.
Imogen is a visual artist and VJ whose work exists in the imagination of a morbid child-oracle, with a predilection for electronic music. With video and animation as her dominant medium she creates surreal environments fuelled by the thrill of technological threats, nightmarish nostalgia and visions of a joyously dystopian future.
An award winning graduate from the VCA in 2014, she has had work shown in The National Portrait Gallery of Australia, White Night, The Chin Chin Wall of Art, the Margaret Lawrence Gallery, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival, Kong and Little Creatures.
Imogen has also projected visuals as part of live music events at Loop, Boney, The Evelyn Hotel and Sun Moth Canteen. She has worked on projects for the BBC (Eurovision), The Melbourne Fringe Festival and Nike.
