Melbourne Recital Centre is bringing three electronic pioneers to the stage for ‘Synthesis’

As part of a collaboration between Red Bull Music Festival and Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS), Melbourne Recital Centre welcomes a curated lineup of local and international electronic pioneers to the stage for Synthesis.

A celebration of analogue culture, Synthesis will host a diverse slab of electronic artists, handpicked by MESS, to showcase the possibilities of the genre.

Leading the bill is five-time GRAMMY-nominated composer Suzanne Ciani whose sound spans the realms of neo-classical and electronic genres. With a career spanning over 40 years and 16 albums, including Seven Waves and The Velocity of Love, Ciani’s expansive catalogue of forward-thinking work has seen her dubbed the ‘Diva of the Diode’.

Joining Ciani is New York producer Hiro Kone, aka Nicky Mao, whose deconstructive approach to music incorporates field recordings, modular synth and violin. In a world premiere, she will bring her forthcoming album A Fossil Begins To Bray to the stage to unleash it live.

Synthesis will also welcome Australia’s own Andras, aka Andrew Wilson, whose take on ’90s underground house and ambient music has earnt him widespread acclaim as an unpredictable force in the world of dance music.

Synthesis comes to Melbourne Recital Centre’s acoustically pristine Elizabeth Murdoch Hall as part of Red Bull Music Festival, spanning six days and nine venues across October.

Synthesis hits Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday October 16 as part of Red Bull Music Festival. For tickets and more information, visit the Melbourne Recital Centre Website
