Unsound Adelaide: Saturday

Moritz von Oswald Trio feat. Tony Allen and Max Loderbauer, Emptyset, Gardland, James Ferraro


Dance music and experimentation rise from the atmospheric depths of Unsound’s Friday line-up with Moritz von Oswald, one of the most influential figures in modern electronic music, known for helping define minimal and dub techno. His trio belongs just as much to jazz and even contemporary classical and includes musicians Max Loderbaur (Sun Electric) and Tony Allen (the legendary drummer for Fela Kuti’s band Africa 70).

Bristol’s Emptyset make abstract techno, a meeting of noise, bass and silence that culminates in a pulsating storm of distorted frequencies. Their most recent album Medium was recorded in an abandoned Victorian mansion and translates architecture into sound. Here they present their intense and unsettling live show. Meanwhile, Australians Alex Murray and Mark Smith, aka Gardland, are the stars on the rise as they present their hardware-based projects – a kind of warped dance music that feels both mechanical and organic. Soak in the bass as Unsound maps the electronic spectrum from dub to disorder and beyond. On the same night, prolific artist James Ferraro plays his hypnagogic pop, a strain of lo-fi, 1980s-centric psychedelia.
