Military Position, Rites Wild, Papaphilia, En V
Curated by: Harriet Kate Morgan
Dates: Saturday 27 June 2015
Harriet Morgan presents her most current solo enterprise, Military Position, interrogating and accentuating the psychedelic potentials within the death industrial modus, replete with dystopian vocal onslaught.
Rites Wild is the solo project of South Australian Stacey Wilson (Regional Curse, Terrible Truths, Harshed Reality). Over the course of several self-released cassettes, various compilations and a long player, Rites Wild has sought transcendence through minimalism and catharsis through repetition. Crystalline synth lines drift over distant vocals, pulsating bass drone and dubbed-out industrial drum machines. Reverb and echo heavy, her work lies somewhere in the vastness between detached coldwave, kosmiche mysticism and downer dream pop.
Fjorn Butler describes her new project as ‘Erotically asphyxiated papa drenched desires – soaking immediate and predetermined ejaculatory pleasure in some formless jelly, stroking the jelly till its pulse transforms from stiff mould to sick sticky muck.’ Butler has played under the moniker previously as Oranj Punjabi.
En V is the solo project of musician Natasha Vomit. After a few years of playing in bands and collaborating with other electronic artists, (cheap present, dungeon master posse, angel and baby chain) En V started live solo performances in 2015. EN.V is an exploration of negative language paired w// raw, melodic, electronic pop music. Influenced heavily by new wave/nowave/house, Kylie Minogue, Lindsay Lohans “a little more personal (raw)” album and the music and vocal hooks of Australian pop from the late nineties and early two thousands. EN.V is crying + trying.
