Oscillo Scape Presents..
Oscillo Scape is a series of improvisatory, systems based, electronic music performance evenings that have been running since May 2016 out of Alchemix Studios in West End, Brisbane, Australia. The event has played host to wide range of artists, and garnered a following for exploratory practices that seek to extend the possibilities of electronic sound.
Oscillo Scape Presents highlights a selection of artists that have performed in the series that are exemplary of the live abstract electronic sound and music that the events seek to promote. Each act has an extensive history of presenting this type of material in a performative context and are available as a line up or individual acts. Set lengths per act can range between 30 minutes to 1 hour duration, often traversing the gamut from the beat driven tunnel of dance music to the wide open spaces of ambient and noise.

Cavern is the improvisation live electronic project of Andrew Gibbs, Matthew Prain, Pete Helskanki and Lindsay Crawford. The group and its constituting members have performed at Sonic State, World Science Festival, Brisbane Fringe Festival, Yonder as well as Jungle Love as part of the Wonky Queenslander & Mesmerism collectives.
Employing a modular configuration and generative, haptic approach to group performance, each set is a unique exploration on the technologies that have shaped the history of electronic sound and the associative possibilities of electronic music.
