Liquid Architecture Present
DEMDIKE STARE Tickets
7:00pm, Sun 24 June, 2018
Howler, MELBOURNE, VIC
Demdike Stare is a collaboration between Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker, two childhood friends from the North of England with voracious appetites for record collecting and strange music-making. The pair re-appropriate sounds, which they have spent a lifetime cataloguing, into weird and immersive music of their own.
Their techno and concre te approach has lead to an exploratory discography. From the doomy drones of their occult-infused 'horror sound' heritage, to the brutal terrain of their 'Testpressing' 12" series, to the more recent move to playfully noisy club sounds with 'Wonderland', their archival approach amalgamates fraying breaks, weird rhythmic textures and searing noise, all deployed in a listener-dazing sonic symbiosis.
Playing alongside Demdike Stare at Howler will be - Ava; a project in expiration and autoimmunity, the kinetic narcotics of Kane Ikin's sonorous vortexes and the Hi-res, bare bones hardware techno of Nina Buchanan.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung, Taungurong, Dja Dja Wurrung and the Wathaurung people of the Kulin Nation as the custodians of the land in which this event takes place. Sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
LIQUID ARCHITECTURE is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
