Doors 7.30pm

The Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ is the biggest of its kind (Grand Romantic) in the Southern Hemisphere. Originally built in 1929 it uses ninety thousand cubic feet of air every minute and can produce anything from a delicate whistle to deafening thunder.

‘Trouble in the Air’ is best described as a cold dream of uncertainty & rupture.
Since forming in 2008, New War has toured Australia and the UK, played festivals including All Tomorrow’s Parties and MONA FOMA, shared stages with the Sun Ra Arkestra, My Bloody Valentine, Wire, EMA, Liars, Neu! / Harmonia and Laughing Clowns, been remixed by HTRK and Gossip, and received critical acclaim from publications such as The Quietus.

‘Trouble in the Air’ is the first new music from New War since 2013’s self-titled debut on ATP Recordings.

The evening will also feature the performance of atmospheric new experimental electronic works by composers from RMIT’s Digital Media program.
