An electronic music spectacular will hit the Far South Coast this weekend, bringing together workshops and performances from five talented artists across NSW.

inFREQUENCY is a regional electronic artists’ exchange that holds events showcasing the different styles of the talents in this emerging art form.

Five of its artists will converge at Navigate Arts in Tanja on 5 November for the local event, which will have demonstrations of video projection-mapping and live-coding to provide an introduction to free software before the night-time performances.

Artists Scott Baker, a Bermagui resident who has made audiovisual art as Abre Ojos and techno as Dron Skot, and Jason Richardson, whose work as Bassling has gained national and international interest, have two decades of experience in working together.

Mr Baker’s work has featured at many local festivals including Eden’s Giiyong Festival and Bermagui’s Trail of Light and Sound.

“This project began when I was enthusing to Scott how Bernard Gray was developing live-coding performance skills in Griffith with the DECODED workshops,” Mr Richardson said.

“It brought to mind the skills in music-making and video-editing that I’d learned in Wagga Wagga, so we began planning a way to bring together this diverse group of musicians based in regional NSW.

“Scott identified artists Myst Mach and The DJ Ruined My Wedding Day from the South Coast and we thought it’d be great to create performance opportunities to develop skills for the musicians and the audiences, because you never know where the ideas and experiences can take you.”

Myst Mach is a young producer and DJ from Tathra who pulls together genres far and wide to mould them into a kinetic object in their own dancefloor-focused journeys.

The DJ Ruined My Wedding Day will make you as giddy as a bride on her wedding day and build you up to only take you higher with their DJ set colliding old favourites with the best underground tunes.

The workshops run from 1 pm and the doors for the performances open at 6 pm. Navigate Arts is just north of Tathra at 1140 Tathra-Bermagui Road.
