Thalamus Lab  made a selection for the compilation which includes tracks by Clicks & Keys, Logical Disorder, Alpha Cephei, Kilstk Wrams, Dhuz Bazz, Juan Cristobal Ribes, Gis_Sweden, Matt Burnett, Vertical Noise and Davic Nod.

The album is now online and free to download. Enjoy it!!

Slight Nightmare "Delicate Grip" EP

Prefix Tapes are pleased to announce the physical release of the new Slight Nightmare EP. "Delicate Grip" is a dark and ominous collage work reminiscent of The Haxan Cloak and terror-inducing horror movie soundtracks. An audio assassination and an absolute head-fuck. Check the release out:

Low Nox - Vice Bar - 9 May 2015

Low Nox is the solo drone/bliss-scape/general electronic weirdness project of John Atkinson from Aa (Los Angeles/Brooklyn).  He's returning to Melbourne after playing a couple of stunning shows last year - this is one really not to be missed. 
Here he'll be joined by locals Footy, whose dual electric-piano improvisations create pulsing, minimal and frequently gorgeous sound-scapes, and new-ish noisemakers Repellant, featuring Evelyn Morris and Grace Anderson.  This should make for a riveting Saturday night's musical expedition/journey. $6. Vice Bar, 42 Johnston Street, Fitzroy VIC 3065.

Craft Swop B at Conduit Arts this Thursday May 7

This Thursday at Conduit Arts - an evening of sound-related performance, featuring some unique and special artists, curated by Barnaby Oliver:

Paul Rodgers

Audio-visual innovator, and founder member of London’s legendary Loophole Cinema, promises B&WTV, Camera, Vision Mixer, Korg MS20, Drum Machine, Theremin, Effects pedals, & some other odd things, & with feedback, with some TG, Suicide, with a bit of Casio, & Nam June Paik, Electronic, Mechanics, Old Technology,Anarchic Tendency from the twentieth-century.

Tim Catlin

Instrument inventor and founder of the amazing Overtone Ensemble, whose new album ‘Whorls’ (with Machinefabriek) is out soon on Low Point. Tim will be performing on acoustic synthesiser/vibrissa.

Anna Fern with Sjaak de Jong

Melbourne’s foremost exponents of sound poetry. Alongside new and improvised work, they will perform parts of Kurt Schwitters’ dadaist classic ‘Ursonate'

Barnaby Oliver with Simon Whitehead

Whitehead and Oliver have collaborated remotely for many years now. Originally using the postal service as a means to exchange material between their relative geographical locations, they have now developed an online process of sharing and altering materials as part of a long term commitment. In the 90‘s they would meet regularly to perform together and construct spaces with shared materials. They now rarely meet in person and location and concentrate instead on a process of working and responding with an emphasis on materiality and a constant cycle of alteration. Here the work, though referencing discrete locations, becomes so altered that it appears to hover between places. For this show they will present a live web-based sound/movement collaboration.

Thursday May 7, 8pm, Conduit Arts Initiative, 83 Brunswick Street Fitzroy (http://www.conduitarts.org). Entry $10
