NWA Podcast #27. Nadir, Live-to-air Set & Interview

Posted on Apr 27, 2012

In this episode of the New Weird Australia podcast series, we delve into modular synthesis, off the back of a two-day Sydney festival that both celebrates and explores the concept, titled Moduluxxx.

The organisers described the event as somewhere between “a museum, a lan party and a petting zoo”. To get the full meaning behind the analogies, we hear from artist and festival co-director, Pia Van Gelder, who also discusses the ideas and activities behind modular synthesis in more detail – and in particular, why it has undergone something of a renaissance in recent times.

The podcast also features an example of the artform in action with a 20 minute set from Nadir – a collaboration between Sydney artist Alex White and Melbourne’s Ben Byrne – and acting as something of a warm-up for their Moduluxxx experience.

The interview and live set was originally broadcast on 26th April 2012.
