Cuspeditions presents James Rushford & Joe Talia, with support TBA on 9 April
James Rushford & Joe Talia are two distinctive and exploratory voices in the contemporary Australian underground. They first caught our ear with their wonderful ‘Manhunter’ release on Graham Lambkin’s KYE label. Drawing upon strategies from contemporary composition, music concrete and improvisation, it weaves together greyscale electronics, dehumanized drum machines, amorphous vocal fragments, domestic detritus and sundry devices into a clouded, submerged narrative fabric. Although the duo’s working methods and sound sources have changed radically between releases (and even performances), all of their work breathes the same peculiar air of lingering obsession and decayed virtuosity.
Support TBA. £5 (Unwaged) / £7 (waged)
Doors at 7pm, performances begin at 8 and end by 11pm.
