Fantastic new experimental music TV in Australia!


Wow. I am so excited. And shocked.

Our national broadcaster, ABC TV, has decided to make Tuesday nights worth watching. Starting next week at 10pm, we have a showsimply titled ‘Set!’ featuring a live set from some of the new and old faces of Australian experimental music. It is being broadcast in triplets – three weeks at a time, then a break.

The first show, on May 2, kicks of with an hour of The Necks. May 9 has 20 year old Melbournian Francis Plagne, then Anthony Pateras on May 16. Later in the year they have Oren Ambarchi, Splinter Orchestra, and many more.

Info on the first show is here.

Set the PVRs to stun.
