SYNCRETISM : 21 March 2009

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

Volume, dynamics and sonic density have a quality that transforms the aural experience from cerebral to physical and it’s this idea that will be tested by two of Australia’s most exploratory artists at Syncretism. It just so happens to also be a double CD launch!

Whilst they may be only two musicians, Brisbane’s No Anchor creates an utterly engulfing wall of sound. Ferociously energetic, their concepts are nothing short of intense. This duo delivers an unrelenting vision of doom that places them at the dark heart of this city’s soundscape. By contrast, Lawrence English is renowned for his abilities to generate immersive sound fields that consume the audience in an epic ocean of textured sound. For his set as part of Syncretism, English presents new material from his album, A Colour for Autumn, released by the acclaimed 12K imprint from New York.

Heinz Riegler also joins the bill in one of his first solo outings in many years - a rare treat!
