THOMAS WILLIAM VS SCISSOR LOCK

HORSE MACGYVER

  • Ears Have Ears Djs

Ears Have Ears, FBi’s weekly experimental music program presents the third in a series of live shows bringing together some of Australia’s most exciting experimental musicians to perform in some of Sydney’s more unique venues.

Ears Have Ears Presents #3 features three acts at the forefront of Sydney’s experimental and independent music community under various guises.

THOMAS WILLIAM VS SCISSOR LOCK

Thomas William Vs Scissor Lock is the collaborative project of Tom Smith and Marcus Whale.

Tom is a mainstay of Sydney’s experimental music scene – a curator, teacher and musician, most recently releasing the highly acclaimed ‘Deccan Technicolour’ via Melbourne label This Thing and curating Firstdraft’s Night Depot as part of ISEA, Vivid.

Scissor Lock aka Marcus Whale is best known for his work in Collarbones (with Travis Cook) & Black Vanilla (with Guerre & Marseilles). As Scissor Lock he combines manipulated voice and feedback with laptop processing.

In duo mode, Thomas William Vs Scissor Lock create detailed soundscapes which fuse individual styles effortlessly, as realised on their excellent 2012 album ‘Jewelz’ via New Weird Australia and 2013 original contribution ‘Dreams Have Dreams’ made exclusively for Ears Have Ears radio last year.

KNITTED ABYSS

Knitted Abyss is the resurrected duo of Lucy Phelan (ex NOTV, currently of Half High duo) and Anna John (Holy Balm). The pair sprung out of Sydney’s DIY scene in the 00’s – releasing small-run cassettes of unique guitar, pedal and drum machine driven audioscapes on Night People and Bumtapes before laying the project to rest some years back.

At Ears Have Ears Presents #3 Knitted Abyss play their first Sydney show in a number of years – not to be missed! We feel really honored to present this rare KA performance!!
