    One a trained classical violist, and the other a DJ with a decade of experience playing some of Berlin’s coolest clubs, Kieran and Kate might appear at first to come from very different worlds. But the two share a love for a unique blend of bass music, IDM, Drum & Bass, techno and jazz—and are passionate about meshing these diverse sounds into audience-immersive, cohesive, vibrant and unexpected journeys.Kieran Welch’s musical life has been defined by searching for ways to combine his training in classical viola performance with diverse musical worlds and communities. From his unique live shows, merging live electronics and viola, to the concert series he founded a decade ago, Dots+Loops, he pairs a visceral playing style with a passion for multilayered curation, on a mission to inclusively share meaningful stories in an artistic conversation. Following a years-long incubation, his debut single In Regolith, composed by Tilman Robinson, releases this May.

    Naarm/Melbourne DJ Kate Miller has spent the last decade exploring different pockets of the dance space both locally and abroad, and is renowned for delivering wide-ranging sets which move across genres with fluidity. Creating an immersive experience for each context with fun at the heart of every set, her devotion to irresistible grooves and brave selections has earned her respect as a bold and emphatic selector, as well as regular slots at De School, Panorama Bar and Australia’s Cool Room. Recently finishing a Masters in Sonic Arts at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), she returns to Meanjin/Brisbane for her first local set in over a year.

    Driven by the power of connection, violinist Claire Litwinowicz’s creative outputs exist in grey areas between classical and new music realms, whether that is collaborative installations, electro-acoustic compositions, improvised performance or curated contemporary classical concerts. With a curiosity for new and boundary-pushing music and considerable classical chops, her violin and loop performances immerse the audience in hypnotic, beautiful and haunting layers of sound.

    Program Visual Rating: 10%

    No strobe lights will be used. There will be coloured effect lighting.

    This show will feature moderately loud electronics at times. Audiences are free to leave and re-enter at any point, with a slightly removed space available in the courtyard in front of the venue.

    The performance space at the BELOW at Warehouse 25, which is located on the basement floor of the venue. Unfortunately this space is not wheelchair accessible, as access is via a set of stairs. The bar is located on the Main Floor of the venue. The Main Floor is accessed through a front courtyard, with a fully flat concrete floor and wide space to wheel through. Access from the street is via a fully-flat and wide curb ramp. The street and pathway directly from the street have a notable sideways gradient (low on the left and high on the right looking towards the entrance), but this flattens out upon reaching the courtyard. To reach the stairs to The BELOW, head through the main floor of the venue, to the back corner of the room opposite the main bar (to your left as you enter).
