Xui Xui ….are experimental in the most literal meaning - not musicians exploring "experimental genres" of music, but ones who actually experiment, leading to music whose ideas travel the map so broadly as to be deemed unclassifiable when put together. PITCHFORK
Following performances throughout Europe, Russia and America including David Lynch's Festival of Disruption in LA, The SUBSTATION presents the Melbourne Premiere of Xiu Xiu Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks. The American experimental pop group’s performance is a genre-breaking interpretation of the U.S TV series’ iconic music.
Xiu Xiu was commissioned by the Queensland Art Gallery's Australian Cinémathèque in 2015 to reinterpret the music of the TV series for the exhibition David Lynch: Between Two Worlds and has since performed their haunting captures of Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch’s compositions to sell-out audiences across the world.
Led by Jamie Stewart, Angela Seo and Shayna Dunkelman, Xiu Xiu emphasise the music’s chaos and drama. Their musings are a complex mix of post punk and synth pop, classical and experimental styles, full of brutality and emotional depth.
Xiu Xiu Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks other Australian performances include Dark Mofo on the 18th June, which has already sold out, as well as Queensland Art Gallery Of Modern Art on 24th June. Each performance at The SUBSTATION will be presented as a double bill of sonic offerings with Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) taking stage on opening night and Sarah Davachi closing out the season.
