SET TIMES:
SARAH DAVACHI 8.30PM (FRI)
XIU XIU PLAYS THE MUSIC OF TWIN PEAKS 9.30PM (FRI)

The iconic music of American TV series Twin Peaks by composer Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch is given a makeover in this special live performance by acclaimed experimental pop group Xiu Xiu.

Led by JAMIE STEWART, ANGELA SEO and SHAYNA DUNKELMAN, the music of XIU XIU defies simple description. It is a complex mix of post punk and synth pop, classical and experimental styles, full of brutality and emotional depth.

XIU XIU’s performance isn’t simply a recreation of the Twin Peaks music, but provides an entirely new interpretation that emphasises its chaos, drama, fear, noise and sidelong leering glances.

DOUBLE BILL with XIU XIU and Sarah Davachi (CAN)
SARAH DAVACHI is a master of her craft. As an accomplished researcher and holding a masters in electronic music and recording media, DAVACHI explores aspects of experimentalism, organology and archival study, and phenomenology and perception.

In this special performance, DAVACHI’s work will engulf The SUBSTATION with the forgotten sonics from bygone era of analogue synthesis, combined with the concurrent treatment and de-familiarisation of organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds. Utilising extended durations, psychoacoustic manipulations, and simple harmonic structures, DAVACHI’s work emphasises variations in overtone complexity and natural phasing patterns.
