NWA Podcast #17. Brain Drain, Live-to-air Set & Interview
From 2009-2012, the New Weird Australia Podcast featured selected interviews and in-studio recordings from my FBi radio show, as well as live performances from events, video interviews and more.
Brain Drain is a Sydney based artist who straddles the divide between structure and improvisation, often revelling in the contrast between the two. His guitar-driven pieces centre around creating both mood and rhythm through loops, and using this repetition as a foundation on which to improvise.
This podcast features a full set from Brain Drain, broadcast live to air on New Weird Australia in May 2011, plus an artist interview and tracks from his first two releases. Live tracks featured in this podcast: Double Chocolate Stout, Black T, No-Hitter, Theme.
