5:15pm - Mont Avery

Mont Avery is a solo art-rock project by Melbourne musician Billy Exton, combining raw, thoughtful songwriting with bold textures from the avant garde. Mont Avery's sound is driven by rock rhythms and cloaked in kaleidoscopic effects, but at its core are powerful tenor saxophone performances, drawn from the reckless free jazz tradition and the groundbreaking philosophy of indie-rock collaborator Colin Stetson. The forthcoming LP “House” is an immersive blend of chaos and calm, where dense electronics and furious instrumental performances struggle against the dry candour of Exton’s voice; held together throughout by haunting spoken word from the Australian author Josephine Rowe.

Lebowskis acknowledges that this event will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri tribe of the Kulin nation, and pays its respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.
