Doors 8pm / $5

Tom Hall is an Australian audio/visual artist, residing in Los Angeles.

His practice involves micro exploration into place, space and time. Inspired by peripheral space, he focuses on using multiple approaches to engage and recontextualise them into live audio video works, installations and recordings. Using sound as a means to translate and create hybrid environments and notions of journey.

Stylistically these outcomes vary, including structured drone, noise, melody and installation; portrayed using synthesis, programming and synesthetic delivery. Hall has released a number of recordings in the past decade on labels such as Elli, Overlap, Arlen, and Presto!? along with extensive exhibitions and tours.

Phan + Karnsomport

Ellen Phan is an artist working primarily in the field of computer music. Recent releases on Anomia and Banh Mi Verlag have been informed by her work as Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner. Therapy-specific methodologies are employed as source material, modulated autonomously by para-sympathetic activity through a variety of processing and synthesis, with an aim to gather insight into cognitive and emotional states on a subconscious level. Hers is a distinctly hallucinatory psychoacoustic sound world aimed directly, with intent and focus, at the subconscious mind. Phan is based in Los Angeles.

Nisa Karnsomport is a media artist based in Los Angeles. Her work focuses on overlapping experimental media practices with new technology. She currently works as an Software Developer and collaborates with other artists on interactive video installations


Baldino is a composer and sound designer based in LA whose work spans an enormous range of production avenues. The likelihood that you haven’t heard his work is nearly impossible with music and sound design in too many trailer campaigns to list. With Prometheus, Interstellar, Ex-Machina, Star Wars: Rogue One and Avengers: Infinity War just to name a few, from there his work ventures to the opposite pole of production with custom sound design based compositions mixed in Atmos for Dolby Labs, beautifully glitched out remixes and continues on to mind bending modular synthesizer performances.
