‘it asks nothing’ actually asks a lot…according to percussionist Chris Lewis….with many poly rhythmic structures at the core,. Yet a sublime ethereal transcendence prevails….
Mirror Clippers are a fresh two-piece heavy power band based in Naarm/Melbourne. Feeding off cooped up energy from deep inside the C19 closet, Mirror Clippers rock their very own brand of heavy riffs, doom stoner punk sounds inspired by kraut rock legends CAN, heavy hitters Carusella, stoner rock gurus Earth and unapologetic
punks Gang of Four. Mirror Clippers is not just a concept band name Daniel and SiB came up with, it’s a sound, it’s a smell, it’s a way of walking, talking, dancing, bleeding and head banging… and, ultimately, a way of pulling out the mirror shards of guilt while having a ball, unleashing your demons and celebrating life.
Toqui are a 8-piece semi acoustic orchestral jazz ensemble filled with darkly cinematic horn-and-cello-laden arrangements following pianist and composer Oscar France. Their music takes elements of folk, electronic and jazz music, with a focus on blending acoustic instruments together and instilling expansive scenes of the natural world bristling with life. Like baroque minstrels, this suite of beautiful, bodacious and talented musicians dance up the score on a witched night where music and magic entwine.
The Mick Power Band plays a unique combination of instrumental songs written for an ensemble of improvisers. Mick Power’s compositions are intense and subtle, stretched out and concise, harmonically complex and simple at their core. Celebrating electronic and rock textures, the band presents a cinematic fusion-scape which is dynamic and emotional.
