"Music Video 4"
Fabio Umberto, J., Matthew Philip Hopkins
Curated by: Harriet Kate Morgan
Opening: Saturday 4 April, 7pm
Dates: Saturday 4 April 2015
Fabio Umberto is the Italo-Disco project and alter-ego of Jake Glas who describes his own, or perhaps Umberto’s music as being ‘deep beyond the furthest reaches of the universe, resonating the otherworldly voice of a distant star. Its light long lost to time shines on in an almost human visage, a pulsing audial anomaly, a flying disco saucer. Witness the visitations of the voice beyond that is – Fabio Umberto’. SOUNDCLOUD

J. is the new solo work of Jarrod Oliver Zlatic, member of Fabulous Diamonds, Free Choice and Mud Brick Couch.
Self-titled performer Matthew Philip Hopkins uses a myriad of instruments and approaches to construct strange, disturbing and minimal soundscapes reflecting moods of unhinged solitude and minimalism that results in an audio collage. Matthew P Hopkins has established himself as a formidable presence in the experimental circuit over the last 10 years courtesy of a diverse range of projects including Naked on the Vague, Vincent Over the Sink, The Bowles, Four Door, Half High and numerous other collaborations. Hopkins’ solo work presents an awry ambience; transcendental propositions bathing in perverse transitions, inhuman vocals and a singular audio perspective where spacious room recordings weave amongst crude studies in direct input.
