TOTALLY UNICORN

U know em..... This is their tour.

LISTEN


LAZERFACE
Lazerface...a semi robotic leviathan, damaged, confused, horrific.. an artificial and mathematical machine, oscillating frequencies of paranoia stemming from something unknown..

We sonically document the life and times of the invented character..Lazerface.
LISTEN

TEN THOUASAND FREE MEN & THEIR FAMILIES
Ten Thousand Free Men & Their Families started making music with Game Boys as a joke. Sadly, over time it became very serious. Now Tom is stuck with a silly name for what turned out to be his favourite project. He is in the Business of CA$H MONEY!
Ten Thousand Free Men & Their Families is a political figure who yells at Nintendo Game Boys and calls it music.

10k in Honi Soit Magazine

"Published since 1929 by the Student's Representative Council (SRC) at the University of Sydney, Honi Soit has a colorful and sometimes controversial history. Our Alumni of famous and infamous editors have produced some of their more interesting and controversial work in the pages of Honi Soit. Many have gone on to become leaders in the arts, journalism, law and Australian politics."

...Until now.



And no... I'm not playing again in Newcastle with the same line-up as last year. But I will be playing with Totally Unicorn on the last leg of their tour!

More on Freeplay, plucked straight from their About Us page.

Freeplay is Australia’s longest running independent games festival exploring the intersection of indie development, culture, arts and education.

Since 2004, the Freeplay festival has presented a unique mix of panels, lectures, and hands-on gaming to a diverse audience of gamers, developers, artists, musicians, writers, film-makers, reviewers, educators, and the general public. As games emerge as the dominant art-form of the 21st century, Freeplay is committed to exploring the creative and artistic opportunities of the form, showcasing the best of local indie development to the world, critiquing and analysing the surrounding creative culture, bringing the world’s best developers to Melbourne, and reframing and re-presenting videogames outside of their usual environments.
