Artist: No Octopus Dances
Songs: [two excerpts]
Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), March 23, 2016.
A rare evening manifestation of a grouping usually seen on a Sunday afternoon, this splinter faction of No Angels Dancing (Allison Cameron and Stephen Parkinson) and Octopus (Germaine Liu and Mark Zurawinski) played a couple sets of spontaneous electroacoustic spatter wrangled by organic percussive clatter. Sonic ingredients include the yawing noise-taps of Parkinson's guitar; Cameron's tapes, keyb and ribbon synths; and stereophonic percussion ranging from gentle brushwork to abstract bow-sawing.
