BATTERIE is excited to be playing a show in Melbourne for the first time ever. With support from two awesome Melbourne electronica acts EMAH FOX & JAMATAR
Bringing together electronica, chip tune, and synth pop- these indie acts will be glitching, bleeping, drumming and vocalizing their way into the night for your listening and viewing pleasure.
BATTERIE combines live drums, samplers, synths & sound-art gadgets in a unique live solo show that pushes the boundaries of what a solo performer can do. Previously he has supported New York groups Gang Gang Dance and CIBO MATTO and written the music for indie games: OTTTD, Thumb Drift and One More Line (downloaded more than 10 million times)
EMAH FOX is a musician and producer based in Melbourne. Her dark brand of synth pop pits urgent beats and ominous synths against sweet polyrhythmic melody. Her stellar live ensemble features dynamic kit drumming from creative powerhouse Nat Grant and extra synth wizardry from the cosmically exuberant Ania Reynolds.
Wielding ambient-come-pounding electro beats, using a Game Boy, laptop and electric guitar – J▲M▲T▲R’s live performance is already amounting a reputation for one hell of a party and his future shows are not to be missed.
On Wednesday 25th Oct BATTERIE will be presenting a talk with SMG Studio game developer founder Ash Ringrose at GCAP at the Melbourne Convention Centre.
Game Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP) is the leading Australian conference for the game development, interactive media and screen tech industries, with over 1,000 attendees and representatives from almost every Australian game development company in attendance.

‘The creative collaboration between Game Developer and Game Music Composer (Jared Underwood aka BATTERIE; Ashley Ringrose, SMG Studios)’

Thanks for the nice review Billy Y.
quote; “Greeted with a catchy electronic soundtrack, I instantly fell in love with this addictive sequel to “One More Line” “The music is the icing on the cake, really. It definitely adds a lot to your One More Dash experience (and actually calms down your post-game frustration). Oh, and if you’re any more obsessed with this thing like me, the soundtrack’s available on SoundCloud” Billy Y. Blogger
