BNE: Brisbane Electronic Music 1979:2014 celebrates 35 years of independent electronic music production in Brisbane, featuring live performances from The Megamen, Vision Four 5, Soma Rasa, and Boxcar, along with DJ Jen-E.
This event is the official launch of BNE: Brisbane Electronic Music 1979:2014 – a major project undertaken by Brisbane’s record label Trans:Com to document 35 years of independent electronic music production in Brisbane from 1979 to 2014.
The result is BNE – The Definitive Archive, a coffee-table style book packaged with a unique USB-device music archive featuring 140 bands and artists, and over 260 tracks. The book highlights artist chronologies, history, and opinion, and includes contributions from over 140 participants in the scene. All profits from the book release are being donated to the Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust, which aims to improve the well-being of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of the Brisbane community.
BNE: Brisbane Electronic Music 1979:2014 will showcase live performances from The Megamen, Vision Four 5, Soma Rasa, and Boxcar, along with DJ Jen-E – all of which are luminaries in the Brisbane electronic music scene, and several of which who have reunited exclusively for this event. The event will also feature a pop-up record store dedicated to rare and unique Brisbane-only music productions.
