Apologies in Advance #15 Tarab + Yvan Etienne + Kate Carr – MATINEE

No Longer Available

Please note that this is a matinee show – doors will open at 2pm and the event will start shortly after.

Apologies in Advance (founded in 2016) is a platform for artists presenting work-in-progress performances. So far fourteen editions of the event have taken place at venues such as South London Gallery, IKLECTIK, Café OTO, V22 and most recently at De Player in Rotterdam.


Melbourne based tarab explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness.

TARAB's compositional works have been published on labels including Naturestrip, nonlinear, 23five, Unfathomless, Aposiopese, Swarming, Cronica, Semperflorens and also his own sonicrubbish imprint formed in 2018.
