Ara Koufax + Simona Castricum

Ara Koufax + Simona Castricum

This event is part of the 2020 / 2021 Melbourne Music Week Ex-Tended.

In this special double bill, Melbourne-based producers Ara Koufax and iconic electronic performer and academic Simona Castricum each debut live audiovisual performances on screen at The Capitol.

In SCREAM, Ara Koufax soundtrack their own experimental film about psychic violence. Pitch-black and occasionally tongue-in-cheek, SCREAM pairs electronic soundscapes with rollercoasters, SWAT raids, red carpet premieres and all manner of everyday horror. After a short intermission, enjoy Castricum’s debut performance of her 2020 album and architecture PhD dissertation ‘Panic/Desire’, presenting an allegory about the gender-nonconforming city between urban and digital realms.
