Nice review of my new EP from Juno:

After bringing Kangaroo Skull and Cale Sexton to light on previous releases, Temporal Cast once again provides a platform for lesser known talent with this, their third release. Born in Italy and based in Australia, Chiara Kickdrum has only had one digi-only EP out in her name previously, so this release marks a big milestone for her. "Pulsar" is a subtle and refined opening gambit, using a reduced set of cyclical rhythms and draping distant pad notes over the top of it for a perfect exercise in techno elegance. "Moebius" is at the other end of the spectrum, all bloated drums and cavernous reverb decays creating a monolithic atmosphere. "Anomaly" meanwhile maximises on negative space, using a dry drum palette and keeping things firmly submerged - the whole EP is a masterclass of restraint and control.

MESS Artist Residency 

At the end of last year I had the privilege of doing a 6-week artist residency at MESS (Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio).


During my residency I have produce hours of material with some of the oldest analog and modular synthesizers, as well as some of the newest digital pieces of hardware , such as the Buchla, the Roland Jupiter 8 polyphonic synth and the Doepfer Darktime sequencer .

Some of the recordings will be released on the MESS Label this year. 

Here's a selection of unreleased recordings:
