Join Dunedin noisists Nick Graham and Birdation for a winters night of sonic texturing, supported by local experimental guitarist Paul Timings.

Nick Graham manipulates the electrical starvation of a dying mixing console, deploying multiple strands of processed feedback to create dense rhythmic drones punctuated by abrasive digital percussion. Currently based in Port Chalmers, Nick has collaborated extensively with performance artists Samin Son and Hana Aoake, as well as forming one half of long standing Dunedin noise-rock outfit Old Psychiatrists Club.

Birdation began a bedroom recording project while her bandmates from Bad Sav were overseas in 2011. Currently it serves as a vehicle for repetitive tropicana with heavy bass and layered vocals. Influenced by soundtracks from video games such as Mass Effect and theme tunes to tv shows like Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

Paul Timings uses experimental electronic guitar techniques to generate minimalist soundscapes in invoking a sense of recollection and dream.
