Tangents is a Sydney-based quintet that melds electronic production, experimental rock and free improvisation.

Their new album 'New Bodies' continues Tangents’ rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise, and free improv jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic. The spacious dub of a plucked cello gives way to a minimalist breakbeat tableau resting over rhythmic prepared piano; a staid electronic groove is gradually absorbed into washes of frenzied improv; staccato synths are woven into tumbling avant-rock; and shimmering free drums phase over static loops of piano, guitar and cello.

To quote FACT Magazine, "The quintet are so comfortable working with jazz, folk music, post-rock and electronic music that it comfortably hangs in a space between them all." On New Bodies, that description rings more intuitive and authentic than ever.

Anti Guitar Trio play progressive, new guitar compositions written by Simon Dawes of Instrumental, adj.

There are few bands I have been more excited to witness the development of. Expect intricate, polyrhythmic and mesmerising compositions in the vein of Robert Fripp, Bill Frisell, John McLaughlin and Buckethead.


The Museum of Faces is a giant interactive installation based on Synarcade Audio-Visuals’ invention: The Lumiphonic Creature Choir, a twelve-headed creature that comes alive and begins to speak.

From October 3rd to October 14th 2018, The Museum of Faces will be based at 107 in Redfern, recording and telling the diverse stories of the local community and beyond.

Approach the Creatures and press a glowing button to make them come alive and speak. Then step into a special Face Capture Booth and watch as your own face, voice, and story become part of the ever-changing Museum!

Designed as a cutting-edge new way of recording and sharing people’s views, The Museum of Faces will be an astonishing communal catalogue of the city at a unique moment of growth and change.

This installation is specifically designed to be engaging, awe-inducing and highly accessible for all ages.

Come and have your say!
