The first being at the Sewing Room on Monday the 26th August. Entitled Partition Concrète, this will be an atmospheric concert of delicate but at times surprising sounds. The recent release of a recording of these works, on Brisbane Label Room 40, was named ‘a masterpiece’ in Italian music magazine ToneShift, and was listed on Nicola Orlandino’s “Best Artworks of 2018” list. Marchetti and Decibel will then present concerts at Linden Gallery in St Kilda, The Substation in Newport and finally as part of Extended Play at the City Recital Hall in Sydney.

You can hear those works on Room40, and see a music video of one the tracks on YouTube.
