Hello Australia! Unsound Adelaide Returns on July 22nd and 23rd!
Unsound Adelaide returns in 2022, marking the seventh edition of our Australian outpost. After almost four years away, the program includes a bounty of Australian premieres. Held within the framework of Illuminate Adelaide, you can check out the program and purchase tickets here.
On July 22nd, experimental musician Kali Malone performs her long-awaited debut down under, while Melbourne’s MY DISCO meets Polish avant-garde percussionist Adam Gołębiewski in a commissioned collaboration. Affiliates of the Hyperdub label include 700 Bliss, with rapper Moor Mother combining forces with DJ Haram, and Loraine James re-imagining club forms. Rising Catalonian star Marina Herlop sings movingly in her native tongue, merging folk, pop and experimentation, ahead of her upcoming album on PAN.
On July 23rd, Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) opens with his hypnotic work Les Sphères (effondrez-les), accompanied by Kali Malone. Singer, composer and performance artist Lyra Pramuk creates layers of voice and electronics, while Australia’s electronic post-punk duo HTRK are underground icons. Uganda’s MC Yallah & Debmaster up the ante with a blistering show, and Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones will blow minds with an A/V performance in which they transform their bodies into avatars through motion tracking technology.
Late nights at the Unsound club will include such names as TSVI, Azu Tiwaline, DJ Haram, AirMax ‘97 and Corin, who will present a new A/V show. A few more names and lineups for each club night will be announced soon.
