I think you guys just re-opened the city!
– Diane Busuttil, audience member
For Out of Iso Branch Nebula invited twelve of their associated artists and long term collaborators to team up and create five new short works.
Wildly unpredictable and eclectic art, performance and noise meet street styles converging in the nooks and crannies of 107; with Lucy Cliché’s pumping techno underpinning this celebration of emerging out of the dark, into the light.
Branch Nebula’s team come crashing in with the speed of skating and parkour overrunning the gallery, infectious dance claiming the footpath, broken stilt movement bursting forth from the elevator, and a shredder sound installation.

Beneath the Noise
Noise artist: Hirofumi Uchino
Dancers: Marnie & Melanie Palomares
An intimate space where movements and sounds are deliberate, intuitive and considered. Two dancers and a noise artist respond to each other and their surroundings.
Kathryn Puie & Phil Downing
A site specific physical response where the body morphs and adapts to meet the needs of the architecture and space.
Dance Floor Deprivation
Cheryn Frost & Lucy Phelan
Deprived of the dance floor, they’ve had to start their own. They can dance but should they?
Josh Bell (skater), Tristan Still (skater/composer), Antek Marciniec (free runner), Sari Simpson (skater)
Skating, free-running and experimental sound artists toy with disorder. Generating sound from their decks, creating chaos with their bodies colliding in a swirling cacophony, they undermine spectacle with nuanced technical twists and unexpected use of materials.
The Big Rip
Phil Downing, John Baylis
In physical cosmology, the Big Rip is a hypothetical cosmological model concerning the ultimate fate of the universe, in which the matter of the universe, from stars and galaxies to atoms and subatomic particles, and even spacetime itself, is progressively torn apart by the expansion of the universe at a certain time in the future. As humans are unlikely to witness this event, the artists have prepared a preview.
DJ Lucy Cliché
Lucy Phelan a.k.a. DJ Lucy Cliché has been a critical force in the Sydney DIY scene for over 10 years. Under her solo veil, Lucy Cliché is an ever evolving project exploring intersections between techno, industrial and electro. Using an all hardware set-up her music delivers a hard bitten exploration of how physicality and the ethereal can interact in music – heavy bass rhythms lock into pounding drums, washed over with synth chords and acid bleeps. She recently released a new EP ‘Drain Down‘ on the vinyl imprint Noise In My Head Records.
