Describe your genre in five words or less.
Minimalist psychedelic doom.


Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
"And so the beast awoke from its slumber; with a sigh, the mountains shook with great ferocity, raising the brow of the very Gods that breathed first life unto it; and so my eyeballs, they did...

Described as an ‘Australian-classic-in-the-making’ by Rolling Stone, Hurtsville received heaps of critical acclaim last year, along with its striking first single Cold Feet. Since its Australian release in June, Ladder has toured...

Next month marks the first time a chiptune festival has ever landed in Australia – a sad insufficiency in Melbourne’s dance music scene, many will agree. 


Finding success in the US, Europe and Japan since its inception in 2006, 8bitpeoples are bringing the low-tech, bleepy sounds of chiptune down to Australia in the form of Blip Festival, set to rock Melbourne with a selection...

So then, what's the band name and what do you 'do' in the band?


The Scrapes. I'm Adam Cadell violin wrangler.



Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

Slub. I play guitar, cello, synth, percussion and, when appropiate, dead man. I also sing, usually in a fantasy language, coz people usually don't understand my heavily accented English anyway.

The Japanese are famous for many things. Raw fish and rice wrapped in seaweed, slick motor vehicles, noble samurai warriors dying for home and country as well as kamikaze pilots holding no less honour. The symbols of Japanese culture are endless but unfortunately, for reasons beyond their control, thinking of Japan now brings forward powerful images of debris on a sea or a lava-like...

The Dirty Baker’s Dozen? Prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike (Audition, etc) leaves behind his preferred milieu of gangster thrillers and horror movies to venture confidently into Kurosawa territory with this sword and samurai action film, set in mid-19th century feudal Japan. 13 Assassins is a remake of Eiichi Kudo’s 1963 black and white samurai movie of the same name, but infused with...

The children are our future, right? So we should celebrate their efforts from the very beginning. Right. 


Now in its eighth year, The Bayside Film Festival celebrates young and emerging filmmakers via a series of Australian premiere screenings, dynamic workshops, and international collaborations from as far afield as Kabul and Japan. Even if your film didn't get chosen, go...

F irst things first, the event name: how did you come up with it and what's it about?

"Well, the event name is called HEAR and we came up with the name by opening the dictionary and pointing at a word. Worked out pretty well, 'cos we all love the name and it just rolls off the tongue."


And what's the damn show all about?
