Las Mar (Launch & Farewell)
w/ Onsen Brothers, Alon Ilsar
Las Mar aka Nick Martyn presents a new solo live show, a new band formed with musical soul-mates Paul Bender and Simon Mavin and the most amazing audio-visual show in Australia (created by Alon Ilsar) before leaving the country until 2020.
ONSEN BROTHERS is a rare and awesome trio that plays 100% improvised music. Simon Mavin, Paul Bender (of Hiatus Kaiyote) and Nick Martyn are 3 of Melbourne's best groove/jazz/experimental/future soul improvisers - they play for the dancefloor and for thoughtful exploration music with huge energy, detail and subtlety.
LAS MAR presents a new format - stripped back and raw - featuring off-the-wall synths and hyper-space, gritty drumming. Hear world percussion, post rock, hip hop, electronic and psychedelic influences mashed into a (mostly improvised) set.
ALON ILSAR conducts sound and light in a holographic world with his custom-built AirSticks, funnelling digital technology and banging beats into a spellbinding audio-visual journey. Get down early to have your mind blown.
