For the first time in Brisbane… TROTH
Two performances over two nights, 9th & 10th of November
Troth is a recently-formed Newcastle (NSW) duo comprising Amelia Besseny (https://ameliaanna.com/) and Cooper Bowman (Altered States Tapes – http://alteredstatesofsound.blogspot.com/). Together they fashion ethereal environs from vocals, electronics, zither, tape loops and sampled percussion & piano.
Troth will be joined on both nights by local & interstate underground experimental/free-noise projects
Catch the latest cassette from Troth via Moontown Records here https://moontown.bandcamp.com/album/our-opaque-wreath and check out the recent performance piece here at the Watt Space gallery in Newcastle – ‘[a]…accumulative live performance from within the loops surrounding them […] The room began the exhibition in silence and slowly sounds, both from the machines and the people working with them, entered until the performance was complete and all that remains is the dialogue between what now moves of it’s own volition’ (CB)
In celebration of this rare appearance by Troth, Essential Minerals will be releasing an exclusive & very limited cassette by the revered duo.

FFEHRO (nsw/qld) – Michael Donnelly (Unwar, 6Majik9, Hashram Audio Concern, MYMWLY) & Eon (MYMWLY, 6Majik9). Ffehro, or ‘Forks For Eyes Head Rock Orchestra’, originated from the late 1990s in Toowoomba & named after Michael & Eon’s art space there. Two legit legends of underground Australia noise & experimental music. Here’s their latest release:
CC – semi-anonymous, solo broken-gear-fucked-noise project from the same mind behind Pluto, Wardenburger, Dictator, Icing Eater. Check the brilliant debut solo release on Essential Minerals.
REPTILE – An extremely rare appearance from this continually shape-shifting duo consisting of Leif (LG, Privileged White Girls, Slupr) & Ben (Tistriallal Binds, Slupr, EM Tapes). Averaging only one show a year since inception, their debut tape on Essential Minerals will be released during these events.
UNIQUE OIL FREE AIR – A long-standing solo, plunderphonics/noise project from Adam Park (Sprot, Wardenburger, Girls! Girls! Girls!, The Perfect Lovers)
JOE MUSGROVE – The brilliant co-mind behind the sensory overload mindfuck project BOTBORG, and Diaspora, Unhappy Beep People & many more. A local noise & musique concrete legend with decades of releases & international appearances too many to list. Latest tape from Essential Minerals here.
INNIG – the long-running mysterious side-project from two members of the psych/noise collective 6Majik9, once described as the ‘quieter side’ of the latter and ‘A reflective, meditative, raw impression of our cosmic lives… Unplanned, flawed and eternally surprising… The past, present and the future swirling endlessly within all our minds eye….’. Perhaps the second show in about a decade!
HOLVV – The awesome solo guise & MB-inspired abstract synth-led project for Holly Wheeler (Xynthia, Black Meat), these solo appearances are becoming increasingly rare so don’t miss this chance to see Holvv!
