I was flicking through the Adelaide Festival program this morning, and noticed that frequent Tool collaborator Lustmord will be playing a set in town for the Unsound Festival. This festival takes place over 3 nights in a couple of venues in Adelaide, and Lustmord will be performing with Demdike Stare, Pole and Ben Frost on Saturday the 16th of March at Her Majesty’s Theatre:
Low frequencies, dark ambient, post punk, black metal and noise; field recordings from caves, crypts and slaughterhouses; and an occult project fusing elements from cult soundtracks and fractured dub – things get dark and spooky on Unsound Adelaide’s last night of stunningly experimental electronic music. Hold tight as legendary sound artist Lustmord, occult project Demdike Stare with Unsound-commissioned work Concealed, featuring Zephyr Quartet, influential German glitch and dub-inspired deep electronic artist Pole and acclaimed musical surgeon Ben Frost take to the stage.
Other highlights of the festival include Adelaide Symphony Orchestra performing 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as the Kronos Quartet + Bryce Dessner performing JG Thirwell’s Manorexia.
