VISCERAL AND INTIMATE: ONO IS MELBOURNE’S PRE-EMINENT DEEP LISTENING EXPERIENCE


The SUBSTATION and ONO presents GRAND RIVER (ITA), CHRIS SSG, FÍA FIELL, SOFT HIGH aka. Sleep D

Continuing the journey towards a collective understanding of rhythm and sound, ONO returns for their third instalment at The SUBSTATION.

Pack a cushion, or grab one provided and snuggle down for a night of high fidelity storytelling.

Part performance, part installation, ONO creates a platform for music most often reserved for private enjoyment. Ambient and experimental sounds flow freely via communal conditions of warmth, comfort and intimacy between listener and performer.

GRAND RIVER live (Spazio disponibile / One Instrument // ITA / NL)

Aimee Portioli aka Grand River exudes a dynamism in sound belying the fact her releases were made public only a few years ago.

Steeped in the studio environment as a sound engineer, sound designer and a composer for Italian national radio, Aimee views mastering the technicalities of her environment as a way to unlock maximum flexibility when recording and experimenting; a clean signal path to convey humanality and emotion by way of instrument and machine.

Her debut EP ‘Crescente’ and more recent album ‘Pineapple’, both on Italian imprint Spazio Disponibile, mobilise unusual sound sources and symphonic calculations to build a masterful sense of suspense; equal parts intriguing and lovely.

Aimee’s own conceptual record label, One Instrument, invites artists to showcase sound studies using an instrument of their choice - expanding on her belief that “limitations foster creativity”.

With ambient beauty and subtle strings of narrative, Grand River is definitely an artists to keep an eye on. ONO is proud to be showcasing a live performance in the belly of The SUBSTATION.

CHRIS SSG (MNML SSGS // JPN)

A Melbourne export and co-founder of the quite legendary MNML SSGS blog, Chris SSG has been pivotal in expanding the vocabulary around electronic music.

Shifting his focus from writing about to playing the music he loves, Chris’s transition into DJ’ing translates a wealth of musical insights to a fully realised expression of vibe.

Engaging with the nuances of presenting ambient music to an audience, Chris goes deep to build sets stacked with accumulated energy, aimed for the heart and head more than the feet.

Alongside his monthly SoundGarden events, Chris’s performances at Berlin Atonal, Nachtdigital, Berghain, Taiwan’s ‘Organik’ festival, Sustain Release, and Japan’s Rural have confirmed him as a key figure in the Tokyo and global electronic music community.

FÍA FIELL (Nice Music / Body Promise)

Pianist, composer, producer, performer—Fia Fiell has rolled herself in music and audiences are smoking it up.

Her magnetism comes from an unbridled confidence in steering contemporary Melbourne sound culture to more refined and graceful waters. Combined with a sense of fresh menace, Fia Fiell takes listeners through passages of sheer power and intensity.

Commissioned by PlayOn, Melbourne Arts Centre and Melbourne Recital Centre and with acclaimed releases ‘A Hair, A Heap’ & ‘All In The Same Room’ coming ‘awfully close to perfection’, Fia Fiell is now cemented as one of Australia’s finest.

SOFT HIGH aka. Sleep D (Butter Sessions)

Soft-High is the latest project from Melbourne dub-lords Mindleaf and The Herbalist.

Acting as the subtle counterpart to their usual output Sleep D, Soft-High branches toward low-key trance inducing rhythms and fresh undulating sound design.

An integral part of the ONO family, the Butter Sessions founders have chosen this upcoming show to debut their newest iteration. Tending to the seeds planted at last November’s low-slung session with Kuniyuki and their classic LP ‘Live At The Fairfield Amphitheatre’, Soft High are bringing their huge capacity for live performance and sensitivity to the space for a set of deep responsive grooves.

Often intense but always rewarding, room, artist and audience all form part of the instrument.

Ticket prices: Early bird $30+ bf / General Release $40+ bf
