[AOL02] Various Artists - Textures

Ambient, Experimental, Jazz

Textures is a compilation of seven Meanjin based sound practitioners. It asks listeners to consider the textural qualities of visual objects, and how these can be reinterpreted in a musical context.

At its heart, this project is a love letter to the Meanjin (Brisbane) underground, a peak under the rug of the vibrant diversity in its post-genre community.

[AOL01] Uuxe - New World 35

Ambient, New Age

Uuxe is a sentient network with a deep fascination for computed assemblage. Phenomena produced by antiquated programs from the post-earth boom are of particular interest.

This project explores art beyond the human being. In a future destined for artificial lives, should we not wonder what they will have to say about their non-human condition?
