PLAY FARE mini indie game festival

BATTERIE is super excited to announce 107 Presents: Play Fare
Its an all day/night mini Gaming festival. An event that celebrates indie gaming culture and gaming community in Sydney.I had the pleasure of curating the live music acts. Myself and the 107 team have been working on this program for months. Its going to be so much fun !
This is the first time an event like this has happened in Sydney (as far as I know). I was inspired by the supportive scene for gaming sub-culture in Melbourne at events I have played at in the past like ‘Square Sounds’ and wanted to be proactive and get something going in Sydney for indie game devs, and game music artists.
This event will feature;
20+ Indie game developers showcasing their original games
5 diverse live music acts that are all game related
DJ Peret Mako (LA Noire sound designer) playing game inspired tunes
Industry talks and workshops
Gaming Art
Retro console and arcade games to play
and BEER .. not just any beer. But a special run Gaming Label brew from principal sponsor Mountain Goat Beer

I’m looking forward to just being there, but also playing my live set as BATTERIE at 10pm on the 1st March 2019 at 107 Projects Redfern. Free entry. Full program of events and contributors to be announced soon.

Be there or be a disappointed square !

Playing The Sounds Unsound at Hideaway bar.

Looking forward to playing along side 3 other experimental acts this coming Wednesday 5th December at The Hideaway Bar in Enmore- Sydney. Last BATTERIE show for 2018.

Number 22 in the resurrected series of improvised, experimental or just plain weird yet beautiful music nights. Still blending the acoustic with the electric, the subtle with the bombastic.

Feature article in THE AUSTRALIAN

How exciting to be featured in The Australian  news paper !

If you were having lunch at a cafe or waiting for a flight, you might have flipped through The Australian and seen a story by national music writer Andrew McMillen about my experiences as a freelance game music composer. Andrew and I had a good chat recently at an APRA conference called The Melbourne Sessions where I presented a guest lecture on composing music for games.

Thanks to APRA AMCOS for inviting me to be part of their conference and thanks Andrew McMillen for being interested to interview me and write a story about my experiences composing music for indie games in Australia.
