PRESS RELEASE FROM AUDIO FOUNDATION:

We are wringing our hands with anticipation knowing that Bruce Russell and Marco Fusinato (Australia) will soon be reinventing the electric guitar here, live in Auckland!

For these two artists, the electric guitar is a means to unfettered self-realisation. Their method is self-described as a “Year Zero guitar technique.” They approach the instrument like a power-tool; as a means to make noise. These guys aren’t axemen, and their approach may well be more familiar to anyone who has ever used a chainsaw.

Bruce Russell is a public academic who has been unforgivingly ‘putting rock music to the question’ since 1987 with such groups as the Dead C and A Handful of Dust. Described by international experts as ‘the Jimi Hendrix of no technique’, his approach to working with sound is brutal, but guarantees results.

Marco Fusinato is a highly regarded contemporary artist, whose cross-disciplinary work encompasses most imaginable media: including sound. As well as working in gallery contexts Fusinato has refined a language of noise-guitar disaster arriving at a sound comparable to Napalm Death brawling with Gustav Courbet.
