Bauhaus (SCA Rozelle)


A pre-mixed DJ set to the theme of Bauhaus, I researched and compiled a set sourcing the piano music of J.S Bach and Josef Matthias Hauer used in Bauhaus theatre, the 1920’s jazz dance music listened and danced to at Bauhaus parties, speech samples from Walter Gropius, Josef Albers and Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe on the foundations and purpose of starting the Bauhaus. Also contains sound excerpts and reconstructions of Laszlo Moholy Nagy’s work ‘ABC in Sound’ and noise related samples that fit into “sound waves issuing from unexpected sources”, all wrapped up in music that resemble, feed off and was inspired by the Bauhaus such as Einstürzende Neubauten, Aphex Twin, Autechre, Magic Yellow Orchestra, Kraftwerk, Tuxedomoon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Front 242, Yello and Jean Michel Jarre.

Held on Saturday 14 December in the main gallery at Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle (now permanently closed).

Caught Stealing (Exhibition)


A concept DJ set to “an exhibition by contemporary Australian artists who mobilise theft as an artistic strategy in their work”, I  researched and collected an entire set made up of music ranging from disco and northern soul to hip hop, trip hop, jazz, rock and pop, house, techno, electronica and drum & bass. Made up entirely of samples, sampled music and their original sources (some obvious, and some not) the set shows just how much a role sampling has played in the progression of music.

The National Art School in Darlinghurst presents CAUGHT STEALING, a new exhibition turning the spotlight on a posse of Australian contemporary artists who engage in theft as a creative strategy.

Curated by Dr Jaime Tsai
Exhibition: 14 June – 10 August 2019
