Melbourne Music Week and Modular present CANYONS & DANIEL BOYD PRESENT '100 MILLION NIGHTS' (EXCLUSIVE MELBOURNE DEBUT) at The Residence. with Roland Tings, Standish/Carlyon, Shining Bird, Andras Fox (live), Club Mod DJs
For their first time as part of the MMW program, Modular are jumping in with both feet, taking the reins of The Residence for an evening which showcases the best in emerging 'Australiana' talent - from Melbourne and beyond.
In an audio-visual collaboration between Modular Recordings artist Canyons and globally renowned visual artist Daniel Boyd, 100 Million Nights will make its first-ever Melbourne appearance. Fresh off the back of debut shows at GoMA (Brisbane) and MoNA (Hobart), this carefully constructed performance will reinterpret Aboriginal and Australian-European history, and explore the subjective reality of what we are taught, and what we believe. Through video installation across three giant connecting screens, and an original score performed by Canyons as a four-piece band, 100 Million Nights offers an emotive and psychedelic experience for the mind, body and soul.
Supporting this unique offering, a raft of Melbourne's favourite artists will also take the stage. In their only performances for MMW this year, acid house lab-rat Roland Tings and futurist dub/pop duo Standish/Carlyon will play alongside the dreamy, lush soundscapes of Andras Fox (live), with Spunk Records' Shining Bird and Club Mod DJs filling in the beats.
