$15 presales

Hextape: raver and would-be shock jock Hextape (aka. Bridget Chappell) presents a live rendition of their current exhibition at Audio Foundation: a dense array of pirate radio stations all broadcasting emblems of the hardcore continuum, as a laboured methodology of chopping and screwing breaks into new ones via a Walkman and the temporarily flooded FM dial, now one long continuous break, a rave that never sees dawn.

Bridget Chappell (a bit from Aotearoa, a bit from so-called Australia) is an Mparntwe/Alice Springs-based artist larping as a scientist working across dance music, contemporary cello, hacked sound technology, ungovernable space, hydrology, and literature. They DJ and produce music as Hextape, create data-informed sound installations, write poetry/essays/particular letters, organise workshops and DIY shows, and try to leave a trail of rave breadcrumbs wherever they go. Most recently their album ‘>:)’ (Powertrip, 2022) explores the musicality of MRIs and received critical acclaim.

Bitch Whistle: Noisey transfemme trio from Te Papaioea/Palmerston North. Featuring visuals by VJ Pixelotti (Grace Bella).

Kolya: Analog electronics and digital programming. Textural and physical rhythms. Explorations in the voids that lay between.
