MGC Presents: /‘ɛks/


12 July

8pm - Late

Illuminate Adelaide Live @ The Lab Vol 3: Acting as the ever-evolving curatorial vision of MESSIANIC GLOSS’ Matthew Adey and Brett Davis return to The Lab for Misanthropic Grief Club [MGC] with BRACT x BAYANG

MGC is an on-going exploration into the ecstatic, experimental and ephemeral nature of live performance.

In this, their third season as part of Illuminate Adelaide’s Live @ The Lab program, the duo will present a work of unified collaboration entitled /‘ɛks 

/‘ɛks/ is a cross-discipline  

/‘ɛks/ symbolises the intention for collaboration 

/‘ɛks/ is the emphasis for a shared experience 

/‘ɛks/ is the endless possibilities in the meaning of production 

/‘ɛks/ will be an audio visual experience of experimental artists pushing the boundaries of their own practices in sound, light and vision. 

Featuring the long-form collaboration of Eora/Sydney experimental noise act BRACT x BAYANG (tha Bushranger), the hypnotic debut pairing of MESSIANIC GLOSS x Jacky Bones and the incredible sounds of Iranian Santur player Maryam Rahmani x Guests. Complemented by lighting and visuals from local artist House of Vnholy.  

/‘ɛks/ promises to be collaborative, challenging and most importantly, transformative. 



In this special co-curated program with The Lab at ILA, light and sound converge over two back to back weekends to present a series of exciting and immersive live music events.

With a focus on technological interplay, experimentation, and commanding performances, for the 3rd consecutive year Live @ The Lab will showcase a handpicked selection of cutting-edge local and national acts.

Expect hypnotic rhythm, movement, and sound paired with dynamic visuals basking in the glow of The Labs jaw dropping 50sqm of LED screens. Check out the full Live @ The Lab program here.
