Setec + Fieldings + Edwin Montgomery
Equally influenced by the complex melodies of Joni Mitchell as he is by the cut-n-paste aesthetic of Cornelius or The Avalanches, Setec (the moniker of Sydney-based solo artist Joshua Gibbs) is a musical attempt to blend the organic with the electronic; to meld the fleeting flickers of the past with nostalgia for a future that is yet to happen.
On his new release, Brittle As Bones, Setec utilises found-sound percussion alongside looped acoustic instruments, fading samples and wailing, cascading layers of his own voice to create a unique, headphone-focused sonic universe any music lover will find easy to inhabit.
Having already previously released the EP “I’ll Be Good” on Sydney’s Wood And Wire label (whose roots lie with New Weird Australia), his music is already receiving great positive attention. It has been played on Triple J and FBi radio, as well as featured in promotional videos for Triple J’s One Night Stand on ABC.
Brittle As Bones is available digitally through Feral Media.
... like a bag of whizz fizz getting hot and heavy with Magritte.
