Big Dead/Motion Picture Actress at The Time Machine. August 18th 2012
On Saturday August 18th we had the honour of having Big Dead and Motion Picture Actress play in The Big Bedroom. Heaps of photos and a couple of videos at http://www.facebook.com/TheTimeMachineQLD
Big Dead have been making music in one form or another since roughly 2008. Recently the group finished their first self recorded EP: A Very Short Story. This material was the summation of the group up until this point. Shortly after the completion of "A Very Short Story" the group lost two of its members to rabid zombie death. With the new line up, Big Dead has shifted its focus to live interactive improvisations, instrumental composition, and songwriting.
Motion Picture Actress is the performing name of electronic musician Thom Brydon. Currently studying at the Jazz Music Institute in Brisbane, Thom’s work as Motion Picture Actress is intriguing. With a solid footing in jazz, Thom takes the genre of instrumental hip/hop and twists it into something new and different. To date, Thomas has played with artists such as Balam Acab, Lapalux (Brainfeeder), OooOO, Chet Faker and Oliver Tank, amongst others.
