Were you so enthralled by this wonderful copy that while scrolling it you hit a tree on your bike, ruining the bike and your phone, before undertaking a research rampage on the effects of tech addiction? Ash Berdebes did too! And then she made a workshop about it.
“I’m pessimistic about man’s nature, but I’m optimistic about our potential.” David Le’aupepe opens up to Ash Berdebes about philosophy, mental illness and music in her final Out Of The Box interview.
“We’re not perfect, so why should our music be? All these mistakes that we make, that’s where you get the real music…” Composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds spends an hour with Ash Berdebes exploring every corner of the music he makes.
SPOD covered AC/DC and let off a large number of glitter bombs. All Our Exes Live In Texas stole our hearts. PVT were restored to glory. No-one covered that horrifying Disneyland song.
On her debut Australian tour, Alabama-born Kate Crutchfield (aka Waxahatchee) took the stage entirely on her own, blowing away the crowd at Newtown Social Club.
Our first #ootbtbt features Susie Youssef! She was on Out of the Box a few weeks ago, adding ‘DJ’ to the many feathers already in her cap. Listen here for a joyous collection of tunes and yarns about pre-show rituals, hecklers, owls and black comedy. Her show Owl Eyes On You starts tonight.
Daniel O’Toole, or EARS, makes paintings, drawings, photos, music and videos. Phew! You might recognise some of his artwork across Newtown, and Ash Berdebes chatted with the man behind it all on Out Of The Box.
Computer meltdowns, collaborations, and classical elitism: Ólafur Arnalds chats with us about the above, and reveals why he skipped Sydney on the recent tour (and it’s a pretty exciting reason!).
